Disappointing loss for FC, March 24
Looking to extend their win streak, the Fresno Christian Eagles travelled to Firebaugh High School Tuesday to play the reigning West Sierra League Champions. With the wind howling that afternoon, defense was sure to be more difficult than normal.
The game started well for FC, loading the bases early in the first inning with only one out. However, after hitting into a double play to end the inning, momentum quickly swung the other way. Firebaugh carried over that momentum into their at-bats, as they drove in five runs on three hits in the bottom of the first. In the second, FC was forced to go to their bullpen after starter senior Dillon Owens’ arm was throbbing with pain.
As a result, the Firebaugh bats continued to roll, and the Eagle defense continued to struggle and get outs. In the top of the third, FC again loaded the bases but was unable to capitalize. Over the course of the game, FC left 7 runners on in scoring position and were unable to drive them in. The game was called after five innings, as Firebaugh took the 17-0 shutout win.
Senior John Dooman was disappointed with the result and said the team was just lacking focus during the game.
“The game was terrible,” Dooman said. “I dont know if we just expected to win because we were on such a big winning streak, or if we played timid because they were a better team then us, but we couldn’t make the routine plays or make solid plays on defense and we let the game get out of hand.”
