The Truckee baseball team is officially on track.
After a tough start to league play, which began with multiple series against the Northern Division I-A’s top teams, the Wolverines have won five of their last six games, including two of three at Dayton this past Friday and Saturday.
Truckee won the opening game 10-4 on Friday but lost the second, 4-3, on a walk-off home run in the bottom of the seventh. Truckee recovered from the loss with a 5-0 shutout win on Saturday.
The Wolverines flexed their muscles in the series opener, as Teagan Pado, Cam Hollabaugh and Bradley VanSchoonhoven each went yard. Pado hit his homer — an opposite-field shot — on the first pitch of the game. It was his second first-pitch home run this season.
Jonny Spaich also went 2-for-4, Miles Guiragossian was 1-for-1 with a triple and Gavin Broad had a hit. Hollabaugh started on the mound and earned the win.
VanSchoonhoven pitched the second game of the series. Truckee tied the score at 3-3 in the top of the seventh, but Dayton’s Mike Selmi opened the bottom of the inning with a walk-off home run.
Guiragossian went 2-for-4, while Hollabaugh was 1-for-2 with a triple, Pado was 1-for-4 with a double, and VanSchoonhoven and Jayden Commendatore each had a hit.
Guiragossian threw a complete-game shutout in the series finale and had one hit. Conor Nicholas went 2-for-3, Hollabaugh was 1-for-4 with a triple, and VanSchoonhoven, Pado and Joey Gravell contributed a hit apiece.
The Wolverines improved to 5-15 in league and Dayton dropped to 4-16.
