Despite having no league games this week, the Mats picked up two key wins against American Canyon and Dixon extending the Mats record to 6-4-1. Once again the team got strong pitching, and this time added strong hitting to get two wins.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               On Tuesday the Mats traveled to American Canyon and picked up a much needed eight to six win. Starter Andrew Rosenzweig 14′ threw 5 innings and gave up five runs, though it wasn’t his best start, his offense picked him up and put eight runs on the board. The Mats got key contributions from Bennett Stehr 14’ who had two doubles, Connor Bruen 13’ who also had two and Matt Metheny 14’ who had three RBI’s.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Thursday the Mats took on Dixon and cruised to a nine to one win. James Vaccaro 16′ started the game and Cameron Nikban 14′ closed it out, they two combined for a great effort and only one run allowed. At the plate Brandon Armosino 14’ came up big going two for four with three RBI’s.                                                                                                                                                                             “It was a big week for us, we knew it would be big to get two wins and I’m just glad we could finally put some runs up on the board for our pitchers, we just need to continue this trend going forward,” said Brandon Armosino 14’.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The Mats will have some time to rest now, as they don’t take the field again until April ninth when they take on Acalanes.
