The Biggs High School baseball team is playing some pretty good baseball at the midpoint of the 2018 season.
Entering a key Mountain Valley League stretch, the Wolverines are 9-2 overall (1-0 MVL). They are coming off a doubleheader sweep of Weed last Friday at Biggs: The Wolverines took the first game, 8-3 and won the nightcap, 4-1.
Hunter Roles got the win for Biggs in the first game, going the distance. Freshman Brandon Francis was the winning pitcher in the second game, picking up his second victory of the season.
Biggs coach Javier Solis is in his sixth season coaching the Wolverines. This year’s group of seniors is very familiar with their coach, having gone through pretty much their entire Little League careers playing for him.
That’s 13 years for this year’s group, which won the District 47 Senior League championship last year.
That kind of experience and chemistry is hard to come by, and it’s paying huge dividends for the Wolverines this season, Solis said.
Roles, a junior; senior Brian Caro and Francis make up a pretty formidable three-man starting rotation for the Wolverines.
Biggs has been getting great play in all three areas of the game: pitching, hitting and defense, Solis said.
The Wolverines are batting .348 as a team and have a 1.88 team ERA. Junior Angel Sanchez leads the way at the plate, hitting .538 with 14 hits and 14 RBIs. Kameron Smith is hitting .533 with 16 hits and 10 RBIs.
The Wolverines are at Quincy this Friday for an MVL doubleheader. They traveled to Esparto on Tuesday.
“These are critical games for us,” Solis said.
