Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, May 6, 2015 5C Greg Knight Sports Editor Sometimes, a baseball team can rise to the occasion -- and station -- of where they play the game. That is exactly what the Chester Volcanoes did last Saturday as pitcher Spencer Lee tossed a one-hitter against the North Tahoe Lakers at Aces Stadium in Reno for a 14-1 win. Lee's fellow pitcher Jason Schlueter, who would eventually come in for the close in the fifth inning, scored four runs and hit for an RBI. Matt Blanton and Adam Branch each added two runs and an RBI each, while six other Chester runners scored one run each. One of the six, catcher Tristan James, slapped four RBIs against the Lakers. Infielder Nick Cancilla led the defensive effort with three stops and two assists at first base. Both Lee and Schlueter also combined for five strikeouts against 17 batters, with Schlueter picking off a North Tahoe runner at first base in the seventh inning. A big part of Chester's offense all season has been the team's seemingly effortless ability to steal bases. That didn't change against North Tahoe as Blanton, Schlueter and Silas Lagroue each pocketed a pair of bases and two more steals came from Branch and Caleb Sylvester. Both Blanton and Damon Stephens smashed triples, with Stephens also adding a double to the stat book in early innings. Lagroue and James also hit for doubles. Chester improved to 17-2 overall with the nonleague win. The flmal game of the season for the Vols will be today at 4 p.m. when the team faces Los Molinos at home.

Bereznak was also perfect behind the plate, making 10 putouts in the game. In terms of long-distance hitting, both Antonia Marro and Allison House smashed triples, while Rebecca Branch put away two doubles. House also led the Vols with three stolen bases. At pitcher, Rebecca Branch was also on top of her game, throwing a two-hitter while striking out 10 of the 23 batters she faced. She also walked only two Warrior batters during her six innings of work. The win gives Chester a 5-1 record in Five-Star League standings. CAL OUTDOORS, from page 3C catch them incidentally on hook and line or who target them on sabiki and similar rigs off piers, jetties, etc.? --Steve C. Answer: The season for the current directed commercial sardine fishery has closed. There will also be a prohibition for next season for the same fishery due to a declining stock, but the decline is not due to overfishing. Anglers will be happy to know that these closures have no effect on either live bait or recreational take of sardine. These catches are not considered as part of the prohibition on directed commercial take. Currently, there is no limit on the recreational take of Pacific sardine (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 27.60(b)). Biomass (population numbers) and commercial catch of Pacific sardine have fluctuated since the early part of last century. Over the past couple of years, the biomass of Pacific sardine has been declining. These fluctuations and the recent decline are primarily due to natural large-scale changes in oceanic temperature, and studies show that biomass has fluctuated on a decadal scale for thousands of years. For more information on management of the West Coast Pacific sardine stock, see the Pacific Fishery Management Council website ( For more information about Pacific sardine history, research and management in California, visit California Department Of Fish and Wildlife's Pacific sardine website at Spotting abalone Question: I was cited for an abalone violation for failure to tag immediately out of the water last year (I went Up to my car to grab a pen and ran into a ranger). My probation states 12 months of no fishing. Would it be legal to still go out with my buddies and spot abalones for them? I would obviously not carry an abalone iron. --Jingsong W. Answer: No. The law defines take as "hunt, pursue, catch, capture or kill, or attempt to hunt, pursue, catch, capture or kill" (Fish and Game Code section 86). If you are helping your buddies by spotting abalone for them to harvest, you are pursuing and PORTOLA, from page 1C an RBI double from Lowdermilk. The Tigers added four insurance runs in the sixth. After both Jacobson brothers walked, Romano stroked an RBI single to score Jake Jacobson, while Baumbach drove home Eric Jacobson. Pearson drove in Romano and Lowdermilk with a single for a 10-0 lead. The Grizzlies used a series of hits and an error in the infield to score their only run in the sixth. Starting pitcher Lowdermilk struck out eight of the 21 batters he faced over four innings. The sophomore also picked off Griz runner Beto Lopez at first base in the early part of the game. Pearson pitched the final two innings for the Tigers. If Baumbach was the offensive heart, the defensive lifeline for Portola was Romano. The junior first Call us today: General Building Contractor Calif. Lic. #453.927 (530) 283 2035 baseman was perfect in the field, snagging six outs. Eric Jacobson also had a stop at second base, along with three assists and a double play with Romano. Head coach Tim Brubaker's team was extremely satisfied with its performance against the Grizzlies -- and a few Tigers said they were looking forward to today's final rivalry game with Quincy at home. "When it comes to Quincy, we have to play them like we played Loyalton today," Lowdermilk said. "We have to hit the ball, play defense, play catch and just the things it takes to win a ball game." Echoing that sentiment was Baumbach, who put particular focus on the Tigers' practice regimen. "I think this win (against Loyalton) will get us up and feeling good as we head into that game against Quincy," Baumbach said. "We have to have some good practices between now and then and focus on making good plays." As to the win against Loyalton, Jake Jacobson said it boiled down to playing essential, error-free baseball. o ~o ~ C S S&W Shield 9mm & 40 SW Kimber Pro HD ii $ I I!

The win improved Portola's record to 8-15 overall and 2-5 in Mid-Valley League. The Tigers will face Quincy today at 4 p.m. in Portola where the two teams will finish the April 11 game that was suspended in the top of the fifth due to darkness, with the Tigers leading 8-1.
