Tsunami beats Manogue, evens their record
Some of the teams that dispatched the South Tahoe High baseball team during the prep season are finding those seasoned players tougher to beat.
The Tahoe Tsunami surprised Manogue 14-8 on Wednesday in Reno. STHS sophomore Max DeLallo had two hits and knocked in four runs, and Truckee’s Justin Vosburgh belted a two-run homer and finished with three hits.
“We just crushed the ball today. We were hitting the ball over the field,” said Tsunami coach Matt Tillson.
DeLallo and Matt Marsh each pitched three innings, and Jason Winslow recorded the final three outs.
Last weekend, the Tsunami went 2-3 in the Reno Knights’ tournament. Tahoe lost games to Carson 13-3, the Sun Devils 10-3 and Damonte 10-0 but defeated Douglas 6-5 and the Reno Knights’ B team 3-2.
In the loss to the Sun Devils, Tahoe led 3-0 in the fourth inning before South Tahoe High sophomore Otto Trebotich came up with a big hit to turn the tide against his high school teammates. Trebotich hit a two-run double with the bases loaded, and then added a two-run double later on in the seven-run victory.
“I kind of root for him with nobody on base, but not with the bases loaded,” Tillson said. “He killed us. He’s the best player on their team as a sophomore.”
Tahoe (3-3) plays the Carson Cardinals next Wednesday at 6 p.m. in Carson City, then travels to play the Reno Knights on June 6. The Tsunami’s first home game is scheduled for June 25 at Todd Fields.
