GREENFIELD — After sweeping Marina in a two-game series, the Greenfield Bruins varsity baseball team has positioned itself as a real contender in the Cypress Division.
The Bruins are 3-1 in the league and 5-3 overall, as of this past Monday.
Coming off a series split with Stevenson, the Bruins had an opportunity to increase their win total in the Cypress Division when they played Marina for a two-game series.
Marina, whose baseball program was gone for three years, started their season hosting Greenfield last Tuesday. The Bruins proved too much for Marina, as they were outscored 25-0.
In game one, the Bruins’ ace Manuel Gutierrez dominated on the mound. He went three innings and struck out eight in their 12-0 win. As a starting pitcher, Gutierrez is now 3-1.
In game two, it was more of the same for the Bruins as they beat Marina 13-0, sweeping their season series.
Greenfield Bruins’ Malcolm Bautista got the win as the starting pitcher and also had two RBIs. Teammate Evan Perez had two hits and five RBIs.
Next, the Bruins hosted the Rancho San Juan Trailblazers (6-2) for game one of a two-game series on Monday, the results of which were after press deadlines.
