Photo by James Wilson Indians split double header James Wilson Sports Editor Greenville's baseball team ended its regular season at home May 13 with a doubleheader against Tulelake. The Indians gave up their lead to lose the first game, 6-4, then came back in the final innings of the second game to win 8-6. The split brought Greenville's league record to 7-3 and overall record to 8-9. The loss dropped Greenville to third in the Division VI standings, which forced the Indians to travel for their first playoff game against Big Valley on May 20. Details of the game will be in next week's Sports and Recreation section. The Indians played flawlessly for the first four innings in game one against Tulelake. Cooper Kingdon hit two doubles, and James Martinez stole three bases and scored two runs. Martine. z pitched the whoIe game, and struck out three. In the fifth inning, however, Martinez gave up three walks. The walks combined with a fielding error gave Tulelake four runs, which gave the visiting team the lead. Greenville was unable to come back. "Losing the first game after playhng so well in the way we did was really difficult for the team," said Greenville coach Mike Chelotti. "It affected us in the first part of the second game. Everyone was trying too hard." Greenville quickly fell behind in game two, and by the fifth inning, the Indians were down 5-0. The Indians had chances, but weren't able to get the runs. In the first four innings, Greenville left nine runners on base. In the bottom of the fifth, Ray Bustamonte bunted for a single and an RBI. The momentum changed and Greenville rallied five runs in the fifth inning and three in the sixth to take the win. Tulelake's pitching started to slip. Brent Washoe was hit by pitches three times, putting him on base and eventually giving him two runs. Darian Potts stole three bases, and Dalton Johns got two RBIs off a single in the sixth inning.

Eidhammer steals second during the Volcanoes' game against Loyalton last Friday. Chester dominated 10-2 to take another win for its record and advance in the playoffs. Photo by Tony Cordero Chester takes out Loyalton James Wilson Sports Editor The Volcanoes advanced in the baseball playoffs May 16 with a 10-2 victory over Loyalton. It came as no surprise to anyone that the No. 1 seeded Chester beat the No. 8 seed Loyalton. The only surprise was that the game lasted seven innings. "We pitched really well, and we were solid on the field, but our hitting was a little flat," commented Chester coach Terry Hernandez. Chester played Loyalton earlier that week, Monday, May 12. In that game, the Volcanoes took down Loyalton 18-3. Hernandez expected a similar score in the playoff game. The Volcanoes started off on the right foot, gaining a 4-0 lead by the second inning. Matt Blanton hit a two-run homer out past right-center field. The Volcanoes got one more run in the third inning and four in the fifth to put them up 9-1 at one point. Tyler Grant went four-for-four at bat, hitting a double. Jason Schlueter went two-for-three with a double and an RBI. Hunter Morris, Cole Conner, Damon Stephens, Nick Cancilla and Tristan James all contributed hits during the game. In total, the team had five doubles. Grant pitched for Chester for all seven innings. Grant gave up two runs during the game, though both were unearned. Grant struck out 10 batters and only gave up three hits. The win against Loyalton upped Chester's overall record to 17-5. The Volcanoes hosted Maxwell on May 20. These two teams squared off against each other last year at the Division V championship. Details on the game will be in next week's Sports and Recreation section.
