A sixth inning two run rally spurred by three Rocklin errors in the sixth fell short as Woodcreek dropped a 3-5 decision.
Rocklin struck for five runs on just six hits however those hits were timely and found spots to fall.
The T-Wolves scored three times on five hits however the number of hits were not indicative of how the ball was struck as the ball was like a glove magnet with the Rocklin defense rarely needing to make an effort to catch some well hit balls.
Scoring took place in the third and sixth frames. In the third Brandon Raposa doubled and an Austin Hagarty single brought him in. In the sixth Shaun Mize reached on an error as did Kyle Dixon, Tyler Milani reached on yet another error which plated Mize and a Stephen Nogosek sac fly brought in Dixon.
The T-Wolves clearly appeared the better team on defense and struck the ball more often, and harder, on offense. That’s baseball and, in the long run, things come around.
The T-Wolves seek revenge Friday 4:00 at home for the finale of the series.
