Gavilan Roundup: March 9

Gavilan Rams

Gavilan suffered two tough one-point losses over the weekend at the hands of Skyline College and the College of San Mateo. 
The Rams fell 3-2 to Skyline in 12 innings on Thursday before losing 5-4 at the College of San Mateo Saturday. 
Gavilan’s Bryant Cid broke a scoreless tie in the top of the 12th inning when he hit a two-run homer, which scored Tony Amaral. 
The Rams couldn’t hold off Skyline, however, as they answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning to win. 
Cid led the Rams in that game, going 1 for 5 with two RBIs, a run scored and home run. Amaral went 2 for 5 with a run and a double. Shortstop Matt Peterson was 2 for 3. 
Erik Barron gave an admiral performance on the bump, allowing six hits and striking out five over nine innings of work. Reliever Connor DiNiro was handed the loss, allowing one earned run and a walk. 
Stats and scoring from Saturday’s game is not yet available. 
The Rams (11-5) will be back in action at 2:30 p.m. Thursday to host Hartnell.
