    Well parrothead I know all the players as well and attend every game and I dont think his comments were off base. I dont think he was badmouthing the players. He was just saying that they wernt really put in the position to succeed. When Pud was pulled he had actually only given up on hit the walks just killed him. Coaches did actually not has Gaarder in the right position on those fly balls. Anyway lets hope they take care of business tommorrow agaist Franklin. Go Lodi!

    Flamefan3, Dude, you need to get a grip. I know nearly every kid on Lodi's team as well as their parents. I hope that you are not an adult, if you are, the audacity to attack high school kids and high school coaches in print is pretty bad. Come down off your mountain top, you are certainly not all that and a bag of chips.

    While BC did hit the ball a little, the runs scored were mostly given away by Lodi. Pudwell had a terrible start on the hill which is uncommon. BC's first two runs scored because of bobbles by infielders, from there on it was walks that got the runners in scoring position, not many hits. Valenzuela came into a bases loaded situation to relieve Pudwell and struggled mostly from the first pitch, allowing runs and re-loading the bases. Borges did a good job of getting out of that bases loaded fiasco. The next inning was all on the coaches. They had the center fielder Gaarder playing shallow right center field. Borges was able to get three routine fly balls, but they were all hit to center or left center field, routine catches for a center fielder! There was not a chance that Gaarder could have made the catches because of where the coaches had him playing. Here we have coaches making mistakes that make the players look as if they aren't doing a good job. Now this is common.
