Bloomingdale Holds Off East Bay In 8A-6 Quarterfinal

Bloomingdale rode a four-fun first inning to a 5-2 district-playoff victory over East Bay on Monday night. The Bulls (13-10) grabbed the lead with their first swings and then never let go to win and advance to a semifinal meeting against #1 seed Plant City.

Bloomingdale loaded the bases to start the bottom of the first, as Nikko Levine walked, Nate Chevalier singled and Cody Wilson also walked. Cleanup hitter Julian Machado delivered the first blow with a single to center that plated two runners and Austin James followed with a single that filled the bags again. Bryce Hazzard then dropped down a suicide-squeeze bunt to bring Wilson in and Carson Crouse chipped in an RBI single to complete the big frame.

The Indians (5-17) cut the lead in half with a pair of runs in the third. Jake Gilbert got it started with a double to center field and Jordan Anderson and Matthew Gaitan both walked to load the bases. Jorge Collado reached on an error that plated Gilbert and Noah Medina followed with an RBI groundout to score Anderson.

That was as close as East Bay got. Jacob Hedgpeth came on to relieve starter Andrew Tubb with three scoreless innings to earn the save and preserve the victory for Tubb.

Levine plated Crouse on a fielder’s choice RBI groundout for another insurance run in the fourth.
