When the Lodi High baseball team opens the Sac-Joaquin Section South Division I playoffs today against Buhach Colony, coach Hobie Schultz knows his offense will face a daunting task.
The Central California League champion Thunder feature two starting pitchers who each finished the season at 8-1. The first is Stanford commit Brett Mooneyham, a 6-foot-5 lefty with a mid-90s fastball. The scary part is, he might not even be their ace. That title, Schultz believes, belongs to 6-1 junior righty Dylan Floro, a control pitcher with an outstanding slider.
