Marauder Baseball improved to 7-4 as they beat the Victor Valley Rams on Friday.
After a scoreless first two innings, the Marauders got on the board, scoring twice on a walk and an error. Victor Valley would come back to score a run in the 5th inning and then three runs in the 6th inning, including a two-run homer.
The Rams still led by a run going into the 8th inning, but it was Hernandez doing the damage again with another RBI triple. This time in the right-center gap to score Cuellar. Hernandez finished 3-for-4 with 3 RBI.
With the game tied in the bottom of the 9th, Christian Garcia got on base with a single. Nathan Duarte then doubled to right field, advancing Garcia to third. Frankie Linstrom then picked the best time to have his only hit of the game. He singled to left-center to score Garcia and give the Marauders a 5-4 win in dramatic fashion. Linstrom ended 1-for-5 with 2 RBI, while Garcia went 3-for-4 with 1 RBI. Anthony Cuellar finished 1-for-1 with three walks and three runs.
