Boivin helps Rogues up record to 11-0
The Medford Rogues defeated the Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox 6-1 in Golden State Collegiate Baseball League play Monday night at Harry & David Field.
Medford’s (11-0) starting pitcher and Central Point native, Sebasten Boivin, allowed just one unearned run and struck out three to pick up the win.
Colton Harris went 2 1/3 innings and struck out four in a row in relief.
Yuba-Sutter is 5-4.
The game was tied 1-1 before Medford’s Omar Ortiz drove in the go-ahead run, Aki Buckson, in the sixth inning. Buckson had an RBI and two runs scored in the win.
“Honestly, I was going up there with the same mentality: just get the job done,” said Ortiz, of his single. “I didn’t care what the result was. I was aggressive, I saw a pitch up, and I executed We’re on a hot streak right now. We’re just going out there and having fun. Individually, we are still pushing ourselves. We are grinding out every at-bat, and even when we start out cold, we find a way to come through.”
Shortstop Caleb Broughton made an all-out diving grab on a line drive hit by Gold Sox third baseman Isaac D’Augustino to end the fifth inning.
Rogues pitchers have allowed just seven runs over the last five games.
