OC Bucs Win First Game

The OC Bucs’ inaugural game in franchise history went back-and-forth for a while before turning into all smiles on Saturday afternoon at Edison High School as they defeated an OCCL rival, the So Cal Sharks 11-4.

The Bucs and  Sharks traded runs throughout the first five innings making it a tightly contested 3-3 ballgame heading to the bottom of the fifth.

The Bucs grabbed a quick 1-0 lead in the first when Aaron Torres was brought in by an RBI knock by Nick Reeser.

The Sharks responded in the bottom half of the inning to make it 1-1.

David Grubaugh belted an RBI scoring Anthony Moreno to make it 2-1 in the second, but the Sharks tied it up again, this time at 2 apiece.

In the fourth, Jarrett Anton scored, but the Sharks matched the Bucs once more in the top of the fifth to draw even at 3-3.

The Bucs’ bats came through in the fifth with three runs doubling up the score to 6-3. Alex Campos and Riley Manquen notched their first RBI of the season in the fifth.

Campos was just getting started. In the eighth inning, he blasted a three-run bomb to finish 2-3 with 4 RBI on the  day. Reeser finished with three RBI as well.

Nicholas Michaels notched the pitching win entering in the fifth, while allowing no earned runs.

The Bucs play another league foe tomorrow. They travel to Crean Lutheran to play the Waves.
