Game #1 – Manson 1 Liberty Bell 11
The Trojans welcomed the Mountain Lions of Liberty Bell to Singleton Park in Manson for a Friday afternoon doubleheader, a game which was rained out weeks earlier. The Mountain Lions have had a strong season and sit atop the 2B League standings.
The Trojans sent staff ace Zach Serafini to the hill and Avery Thompson did the catching. Serafini pitched five and one-third innings, tallying 84 pitches, recording 0 strikeouts, while giving up 10 hits, eight runs, and two walks.
Pitching in relief was Caleb Rossell who pitched one and two-thirds innings using up 32 pitches, walking three, and giving up three runs on three hits, while recording two strikeouts.
The Trojans played good defense for game #1 and the outfield play shined. Victor Calderon, Marcus Bernardo and Caden Beazley all turned in nice catches on hard hit balls.
The Trojan offense was quiet until the sixth inning when lead off hitter Avery Thompson was hit by a pitch, moved to second on a fielder’s-choice, then scored on another fielder’s choice when Bo Charlton hit a ball to the short stop and tallied the RBI. Thompson also added a nice stolen base in the third inning against the top catcher in the league. Zach Serafini had the only Trojan hit.
- Zach Serafini 84
- Caleb Rossell 32
Game #2 – Manson 0 Liberty Bell 11
“Between games, the Trojans’ own Matt Charlton fired up the grill and served the traditional double header hot dogs for both teams to enjoy,” Coach Bill Thompson said. “Thanks so much Matt!”
The Trojans looked to game #2 for a second shot at the Mountain Lions, and sent sophomore Jose Pascasio to the hill and Avery Thompson did the catching. Pascasio pitched one and two-thirds innings, tallying 40 pitches, while recording one strikeout, and giving up six hits, six runs, and three walks.
Making his second appearance on the day and again pitching in relief was Caleb Rossell who pitched two innings using up 29 more pitches, walking two, and giving up one run on two hits, and recording two strikeouts.
Avery Thompson followed Rossell in relief. Thompson pitched one one-thirds innings, recording three strikeouts, giving up one hit, four walks, and four runs. Jose Pascasio did the catching for Thompson.
Defensively the outfield continued making nice plays and Victor Calderon, and Caden Beazley both turned in outstanding catches. The Trojan offense was lead by senior Bo Charlton who had the only Trojan hit.

- Caleb Rossell 29 total: 61
