MVHS Mariner's Baseball Loses Heartbreaker as Junior Pitcher Jake Borst Loses No Hitter in 7th Inning in 2 to 1 Loss to Monte Vista. Have Double Header Saturday at Coronado Islanders. JV at Home
Mar Vista Mariners suffered a Heartbreaking loss to the Monte Vista Monarchs last Tuesday Mar 14.
Junior Pitcher/catcher Jake Borst carried a No Hitter into the 7th inning with 2 outs and no one on base. The score was 1 to 0 after Eddie King drove a pitch to right center for a triple and scored when the center fielder misplayed the ball. The Monarchs caught a break when the home plate umpire issued a walk on some tight questionable pitches. The next batter hit a sinking line drive to left. Senior left fielder Mike Wilson made a valiant effort and dove to catch the ball in the air and preserve the no hitter but the ball fell just short of his glove and got past him for a hit.The runner scored from 1st and the batter got to second. The next batter hit a ball to the right of shortstop Eli Burns who backhanded the ball and threw off balance to 1st to get the out but threw the ball wide of 1st baseman Eddie King who made a long stretch but couldn't quite get the ball. The ball kicked off his glove and the runner from 2nd base scored to end the game A great job by Jake Borst. And a great job by the Monte Vista pitcher who only gave up 1 hit also.
The Mar Vista JV team finished the Tournament undefeated by defeating La Jolla High JV 7 to 6. They will host the Championship Game against Canyon Crest High JV at home at 10:30 am Saturday.
The Varsity will travel to Coronado for a double Header against the Islanders Saturday.Please come out and cheer for either team
