JV Placer baseball team thumps Christian Brothers, 8-4
Colton Ranck threw a complete game, striking out five batters as the Placer junior varsity baseball team thumped Christian Brothers 8-4 Friday afternoon at Fairgrounds Field in Auburn.
“It was a special game because Christian Brothers were 4-0 and have outscored their last three opponents by 42 runs,” said coach Eddie Vanderdoes.
Luis Burrola was 2 for 4 with a triple for Placer, which improved to 4-1-1 in non-league play.
Brian Stangland, Jordan Wood, Connor Collins and Ranck all had hits for the Hillmen.
Placer first baseman Gavin Oyer and catcher Lane Bennet stood out defensively.
