Tam baseball defeated San Rafael at home 6-1 on Friday, March 8. The team was led by their starting pitcher, senior Bennett Flynn, who pitched six scoreless innings while allowing just 1 hit and striking out 13, and sophomore Tucker Bougie who went 2-3 and cranked a grand slam over the right field fence in the 3rd inning.

The bottom of the the third inning began with a series of walks to load the bases. With one out Tucker Bougie came up in a prime spot to break the 0-0 tie and on the 2-2 pitch belted one over the wall to put Tam up 4-0.

“I just felt something about it. I was sitting curveball and he kind of quick-pitched me and I just reacted,” Bougie said. “At first I thought it was a sacrifice fly and I thought ‘Oh, I did my job.’ Then I saw the [right fielder] keep on going back and then he hit the fence and I was stunned.”

Head Coach Nathan Bernstein also highlighted Bougie’s hit as the key to the game. “I’m happy we came out with a win, we needed it. Big game by Tucker Bougie, real important hit right there.”

Coming off back-to-back games in which Tam was shutout, the team seemed to regain their rhythm on Friday. “We started off a little slow[this season], we ran into some good arms and now we’re rolling. We might score 50 a game now.” Bernstein said, jokingly.

The Hawks move to 3-3 (1-1 in league games) and will play host to Montgomery on Monday, March 11.
