uu,,ez,n, Kecoro, Progresswe, Heporter Wednesday, April 2, 2014 iC AND James Wilson Sports Editor Whatever kinks the Quincy High School baseball team had going into the season appear to have been worked out. Quincy solidified its lineup at the Biggs tournament March 28 to win two big games. Quincy started its tournament play against rival Portola. The Trojans' batting was superb and ultimately won them the game. Quincy steadily produced runs to win a whopping 25-4. Later in the day the Trojans took on hosting team Biggs and once again came out ahead in a high-scoring game for a 15-8 victory. "We did Pretty good at Biggs," commented Quincy coach Randy Kelsch. "The boys hit well and took care of business. We're starting to find out where we need to be." Hit well, indeed. Quincy totaled 40 runs in 14 innings. Against Portola, all but One Quincy player got at least one hit. Against Biggs, the Trojans played equally well at bat, but gave up more hits on the mound. Quincy stayed ahead of the Tigers the entire game. The Trojans were up 9-0 in the sixth inning before Portola got its first run in. Portola scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth before Quincy ran up 16 runs in the next and final inning. One after another, Quincy's batters hammered Portola's pitchers. Keston Pilgrim, Erik Schwartz and Kyle Froggatt all homered. Pilgrim's homer was even a grand slam. Pilgrim led the team in RBIs with four, followed by Froggatt and Chase McDonald with three each. Jake Wallace showed off his speed with three stolen bases. Gavin Henderson pitched the majority of the game with a 3.94 ERA and Adrik Yacelga closed it out. Against Biggs, the Trojans actually spent most of the game playing catch-up. Biggs scored four run.s in the first inning compared to Quincy's two in the first and one in the second. The Trojans had a big fourth inning that gained them five more runs and put them ahead. Seven more runs ensured Quincy its win. At bat, Tristin Ray went three for four, which resulted in three runs. Biggs' pitchers walked 15 Quincy batters to give the Trojans a goodadvantage. Wallace started for Quincy, striking out six batters. Yacelga once again closed, and struck out the three batters he faced. Quincy was supposed to play Colusa for the tournament championship the following day, but the game was rained out.

File photo by James Wilson Quincy High grad advances to big leagues James Wilson . Sports Editor It's been a long road for Evan Reed, Quincy High School graduate. Reed's dream of beinga fixture on a major league aseball big league team is fmally a reality. On Sunday, at 3 p.m., the Detroit Tigers locked in their opening day roster and Reed made the 25-man cut. Reed was originally drafted out of Cal Poly by the Texas Rangers in 2007. At one point Reed was traded to the Miami Marlins and eventually to Detroit. Reed played for various minor league teams through his career. Last season, Reed was pulled UP to the Tigers from the triple-A team the Toledo Mud Hens for a couple games. His performance wasn't bad, but also wasn't good enough for the Tigers to really take notice. Reed said he ran out of minor league options, and would have to leave the Tigers if they didn't call him up this season. Once spring training came along, Reed took to the mound and made sure the Tigers would take notice. Reed blew everyone away~ His speed, accuracy and changeup improved dramatically since the previous year. Of the 11-1/3 innings he pitched during spring training, Reed allowed 0nly two earned runs on three hits. The Detroit Tigers recognized the skill and potential of the 27-year-old relief pitcher and decided to make him part of the active roster on opening day. Quincy fans will have a lot more opportunities to see the local athlete on television this season, as he'll close out games for the Tigers much more often. Detroit started its season Monday, and will play dally consecutive games at home April 2 - 6.
