In a dramatic season opener against a crosstown rival, the Menlo baseball team held off host Menlo-Atherton 5-4 on Thursday.

Menlo dug deep in the seventh with the score knotted at 3. The Knights loaded the bases with one out and sophomore Jason Lee drew a walk, and Carson Cleage came home with the go-ahead run. Menlo scored again when Colin Dhaliwal raced home on Sudar Kartheepan RBI groundout for a 5-3 lead.

M-A added a run on a sac fly but Ryan Schnell came up with a pair of strikeouts to seal the win.

"They finished," Menlo Co-Coach Greg Hart said. "It's a seven-inning game and they worked hard to the very end. It was truly a great team win."

The Knights evened the score at 3 in top of fifth when junior Jake Bianchi singled to right-center to drive in Carson Cleage, who walked, then stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. M-A got a runner on second before second baseman Jacob Lee made a double play on a liner to end the fifth inning.

On a full count with two out, centerfielder Trey McNair made a brilliant diving catch to snare a liner to center-right, leaving a runner stranded in the sixth.

Records: Menlo 1-0; Menlo-Atherton 1-1
