Panthers baseball was in top form once again coming off their 19-0 opening night win over Terra Nova; This time around, they were led by senior ace Noah Larkin and a little bit of patience.
With San Mateo only able to suit up 10 players due to sporting confliction, the Bearcats sent senior Jack Gispan to the mound; he was only able to last 2 innings, allowing 3 earned runs, walking 5, and hitting 2 Panthers.
For Burlingame offensively it wasn’t about the bats that drove the runs in, rather good eyes and patience as they accumulated 11 bases on balls and 6 hit-by-pitches. Only 3 out of the team’s 10 RBI’s came off of base hits; all courtesy of senior Jake Caprini, who finished the day 3-5. Dexter Quisol and Taylor Kaufman each picked up a pair of RBI’s without collecting a hit (Quisol on a BB and HBP, Kaufman on a BB and Sac Fly)
Pitching-wise, Noah Larkin was all-but perfect is his season-opening performance. Taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning, which was broken up on a single down the left field by Kevin Sanchez. The senior lefty finished six strong innings to pick up the win striking out 12 with 3 walks.
