Pride defeat Westwood

Mountain Pointe 7 - Westwood 4
WP: Flores (1-0)
LP: Rico
S: Murphy (1)

The Pride picked up a their first road win of the year, defeating Westwood 7-4 on Tuesday afternoon.

Freshman Jr. Flores threw 4.2 Inn of relief in cold and windy conditions to earn his first Varsity win. Flores (1-0) came on in relief of Starter JJ Whitley in the 1st Inning, inheriting a bases loaded jam, and getting a crucial double play ball to end the inning and limit the damage. Flores threw the next 4 complete innings allowing just 1 ER on 4 Hits, while striking out 6 in the Win. Junior Right Hander Connor Murphy came in at the back end of the bullpen firing one strike after another to put the Warriors on their heels and notch a 2 Inn Save, his first of the year.

Junior CF Nick Wallerstedt had his 2nd multi-hit game, including a 5th inning RBI double to tie the game at 4. Wallerstedt would also score the go-ahead run on a Joel Adamson RBI squeeze bunt which ultimately resulted in the game winning run. Sophomore Carson Tucker had 3 hits, a walk, 2 Runs and a RBI. And teammate Jacob McKeon was on base 3 times with a 2B, and 2 big Runs scored.

The Pride hope for better weather tomorrow as Desert Mountain comes to Mountain Pointe for a rematch of last year's 12-11 back-and-forth offensive battle that saw 27 hits and 4 long balls!

The Pride and the Aztecs split their 2 game series, with each team holding serve at home. 

On Friday April 13th Mountain Pointe traveled to Corona Del Sol, and lost 7-4.

Alex Bookman pitched tough in the Loss. Bookman (3-3) would bend early, but not break, taking his team out to a 3-2 lead through 3 Innings. But in the 4th, two errors by the Pride defense lead to a 4 run inning and chased Bookman from the game in position to take the Loss. Senior Tristan Flores threw the last 2-1/3 Inn to keep his club in the game, but the Pride were not able to overcome their 4th Inning miscues. 

Juniors Jacob McKeon and Jonny Weaver had Multi-hit days in the loss, and teammate Alex Bookman singled in a Run early and later scored another after getting hit by a pitch in the 6th. The Pride would rally late, getting the tying runs on base in the 6th inning - but a flyout would leave the bases loaded and put the Pride down 0-1 in the series. 

On Tuesday April 18th the teams would square off in a rematch at Mountain Pointe.

Senior Lefty Cameron Polich toed the rubber for the Pride, and turned in his 3rd consecutive Quality Start. Polich (5-2) pitched to contact early and often, and a clean day for the Pride Defense was the key in this matchup. Polich retired 10 of the first 12 Aztec hitters he faced, and would leave the game after 5 Inn of work with a 5-3 Lead. Sophomore Southpaw Ryan Aslamy entered for Polich and recorded 6 outs facing just 7 hitters to earn the 2 Inn Save, his 2nd of the Season. 

The Pride offense would clobber 4 doubles the first time through the batting order, as Krol and Diaz each leadoff a frame with a Double and Run scored, and Wunnenberg and Bookman would each Double home a run. Josh Wunnenberg then added to his team RBI and HR lead with a 3-Run HR (7) to extend the lead to 5-0 after 2 Inn. The Aztecs would fight back, getting 3 Runs in the 5th - but a late Jonny Weaver RBI Single put the momentum back in the Home Dugout and helped the Pride claim a 6-3 Victory. 

With only 3 games remaining in the regular season, Mountain Pointe will play back to back days against Desert Vista High School this Thursday and Friday before concluding the regular season next Monday against Pinnacle.

Gilbert 1 - Mountain Pointe 13

WP: Polich (4-2)

LP: Wilson 

The Mountain Pointe Pride completed the 2 game sweep of Gilbert High School on Tuesday afternoon to improve to 8-4 in League Play and 13-8 Overall.

 Sophomore Nick Wallerstedt took the ball for the Pride in his season debut in Game 1 on Friday. Wally labored through an Inning and Two-Thirds, looking sharp in spurts but was pulled after he reached his pre-determined first start pitch limit. Senior Tristan Flores took the ball from there, working 3-1/3 very effective innings to earn his 4th Victory of the season. Flo (4-1) entered the game with a 4-3 lead and 2 outs in the 2nd, and never allowed the Tigers any opportunities to come back. Sophomore lefty Ryan Aslamy protected the lead late in the game, racking up 4 K's and earning a 6 out save as his squad tacked on some late insurance runs to put the game away.

 At the dish, Senior Josh Wunnenberg Homered (4) in the 1st inning to give his team a 1-0 lead, and also chipped in RBI singles in both the 2nd and 3rd innings. Left Fielder Jacob "Nighthawk" McKeon had a 3 hit day, and has now tallied 12 total hits in the Pride's last 6 Power Point contests. And while not known for their speed, corner guys Andrew Zavala and Alex Bookman each stole their first base of the season and each scored 2 runs in the Pride's 11-6 Road Victory.

Noteworthy as well here that Senior Kobe Krol drew 3 walks in the contest as he saw his 7-game hit streak come to and end.  

After the weekend, the two clubs squared off in Game 2 of their series at Mountain Pointe High School, where the Pride would hand the ball to their Senior Southpaw Cameron Polich. Polich gave his team a 2nd straight Quality Start, throwing 4 Innings without allowing an ER on just 4 Hits and 5 K's. Polich exited the game after 4 IP with a 13-1 lead, and Junior Matt Guzman threw the final scoreless frame. 

The Pride Offense saw their first 6 hitters of the game reach base and score a run as they grabbed a 6-1 lead before the crowd had even settled into their seats. Senior Right Fielder Kobe Krol lead off the game with a basehit, and turned in 4 Quality AB's today including a BB, a Sac Fly RBI, two Runs and a Stolen Base. Junior SS Jonny Weaver had himself a 3-hit day, with first inning two-run Double, two singles, 2 Runs and a Stolen Base. Senior First Basemen Logan White & Senior Centerfielder Jayden Brooks each doubled and reached base in all 3 trips with 2 Runs scored, while Brooks added 2 SB. And Freshman Second Baseman Carson Tucker singled twice, scored a run, and executed a squeeze play to drive home a run. 

The Pride will put their 7 Game Win Streak on the line against Westview High School on Wednesday afternoon at 4pm.
