The Los Gatos Wildcats met up with the Palo Alto Vikings for the second time in one week and this time, it was the Wildcats’ turn to celebrate. Early runs, late production and solid pitching combined to propel Los Gatos to a 7-4 win and put them back on top of the De Anza league.
After falling to the Vikings 4-0 on Wednesday, it was a rematch at Paly, and the Wildcats jumped ahead early. Ryan Wilcox played a major part in the Los Gatos success by going four-for-four at the plate and keeping the momentum moving forward. Palo Alto would tie it up in the fourth inning, scoring three straight two-out runs, but Los Gatos would regain control in the sixth. Sophomore Tyler Williams came through, knocking in the go-ahead run before scoring on a groundout to put the Wildcats up by two.
Those runs were enough for Hunter Bigge, as the senior returned to the mound for his first appearance of the season since being sidelined by injury. The Vikings threatened in the bottom of the sixth, loading the bases with one out, but Bigge was able to get out of trouble. He kept it simple in the following frame, ending the game with a quick 1-2-3 seventh and finishing with three strikeouts over those two innings.
With this win, Los Gatos moves to 9-1 and takes back sole possession of the top spot in the De Anza league. They’ll look to continue their success over these last few weeks of the regular season, including two straight matchups against Wilcox and one with Sacred Heart Prep next week. Palo Alto drops to 8-2 and second in league, and will play their next few games against Leland, Saratoga, and Gunn.
