Spring Rains Wash Out Baseball Games
Placeholder Image
Riverbank High School baseball fell victim to the spring rains.

The home opener against Central Catholic slated for Wednesday, March 2, was postponed until Friday and Friday's home game against Sonora was delayed to Saturday afternoon. But in the end, the soggy diamond prevented both games from being played.

"We plan to make up the Sonora game over the spring break, but we haven't yet rescheduled the Central game," said Bruin varsity coach Mike Carrigg.

With some sunny days predicted for this week, the next games scheduled were on March 8 away, to Pitman, and this coming Saturday, March 12, at home against Modesto Christian.

Talking about his team, Carrigg said he has a small roster of only 11 players. His All League pitchers, Drew Villalobos and Zac Swanson are back. But Kevin Cole is not.

"We have lost Juan Machado (to graduation). It will be tough to fill his shoes. He's now red shirting at MJC and has a chance of starting for them next year.

"Pitching is our strength. Because of our pitching we should be in every game,' he added. "But we will have to work hard to manufacture some runs."

The team is composed entirely of seniors, except for Erik Rodriguez and Jason Brodigan, who are juniors.
