SUSANVILLE take advantage of later. Though Portola attempted a rally late in the game, leaving two on base in the fifth and sixth, Quincy was able to send six more runners, including Toby Buus, Drew Baumgartner and McDonald, to earn the 12-2 win, go 8-3 overall on the season and open up MVL play with a i-0 record. The winning play of the game came off the bat of Schwartz as he swatted a stand-up double against pitcher Evan Leal to right field, scoring Buus and Baumgartner to invoke the 10-run rule in the sixth. Hartline and Schwartz led the Trojans with two steals apiece. Pitching and fielding statistics were not available by deadline for this story. After the game, Kelsch said Schwartz came up with the right play at the right time to get his team the win. "Schwartz is a great kid and he runs hard, always takes care of business and, as everyone saw, he took care of business," Kelsch said. Schwartz, a senior for the Trojans, said he decided he was going to take advantage of Portola's loss of Jacobson by driving anything he could into the outfield. "I was looking down the right field line and was thinking that was where I wanted it to go," Schwartz said. "So, I held back a little bit, tried to hit it that way and it went where I wanted it. This is the best feeling in the world to win against our rivals and go 1-0 in league so far." With the loss, Portola drops to 2-12 overall and 0-3 in MVL standings. The next game for Quincy will be the Greenville High School Tournament in Greenville this weekend. The Trojans are guaranteed to face Maxwell tomorrow, April 9, and will see a rematch with the Tigers in Greenville on Saturday, April 11. The Tigers will start out the tournament Friday against Fall River.
