The Alameda Hornets’ baseball team continued its winning ways with a 15-4 victory over the San Leandro Pirates last Friday, May 1.
You wouldn’t know from the final score, but the contest was a close game, at least through six innings. The Pirates managed to score two run in the bottom of the sixth inning to bring the score to a 4-4 tie entering the top half of the seventh and final inning. The Hornets were able to regroup from the letdown of giving up the lead to score 11 runs in the seventh inning. It was the Hornets biggest offensive output of the season.
Eighteen-year-old Miguel Delgado shot four-under par in the final round and 11-under overall to win the 88th iteration of the Commuters Golf Championship last Sunday, April 26, on the Earl Fry Course.
