In the final tune-up prior to the league schedule, the Warriors flexed through a pair of wins last week with stellar defense in a 9-0 win over Delano and a 3-2 win over Paraclete.

Tehachapi (4-6) gave up only five hits overall to take the win over Paraclete. Cade Temple pitched just over five innings and struck out four batters and Ryan Hanzel picked up the pitching victory with two strikeouts in nearly two innings of work.

Eric Johnson and David Carter provided the big sticks for the Warriors, with both athletes each going 2-3 with a double and RBI. Temple also had a hit and runs scored and Michael Cole and Nash Franko each had runs scored.

Earlier in the week, the Warriors won their season home debut over Delano, 9-0 in a one-hitter.

Mountain Baseball came alive in the fourth inning with three runs scored, followed by another run in the fifth inning and five runs in the sixth inning to put the game away.

Carter went 2-3 with three runs scored and an RBI to lead the offense, followed by Franko going 2-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Recording singles and an RBI in the game included Justin Amparan, Tyler Huebner, Hiroto Sagawa and Lucas Underhill.

David Wier also had a hit and run scored and Underhill also had a run scored.

Pitching the shutout one-hitter was Reid Feeley, who recorded eight strikeouts in six innings. Carter earned the save with two strikeouts in the top of the seventh.

Tehachapi had their league opener this past Tuesday against East and highlights of that game will be available next week. The Warriors will be in action again this Friday, Apr. 4, in an SEYL contest against Highland at home. The first pitch will be at 4 p.m.
