On Tuesday, May 7, University Preparatory played their second round of the CIF playoffs against Don Bosco Tech. University Prep fought until the end, but the final score was 12-7 and Don Bosco went off to the third round of CIF.

As the game started, #2 for Don Basco started off the game strong with a base hit on first. Bases were full as #39 walked to first which brought #9 home.

The final score of the first inning was 3-0, with the Jaguars fighting to come back as their pitcher Xavior Campos (#17) became less frustrated and got his head in the game. Jaguars were having a hard time keeping up with Don Bosco Tech as they scored another 2 runs in the second inning and Don Bosco Tech’s pitcher (#2) was not letting Jaguars get past first base.

The bottom of the third inning is when things started to change for University Prep, when junior Travis Madden (#3) got walked to first base. Next up to bat was senior Rodolfo Mejia (#11) as he hit to deep center and went over the second baseman as Madden (#3) got to third base and Mejia got to second.  Alexander Yuen (#15) was up to bat and hit a single bringing in Madden and Mejia making the score 5-2, giving hope to the Jaguar boys.

Don Bosco Tech scored 5 in the third inning leaving the score 10-2. Jaguars were getting frustrated as they kept getting out and Xavior Campos stepped out and Rodolfo Mejia went in as pitcher.  Jaguars scored 2 in the bottom of the fifth inning which gave them a little more hope to come back even though they were down 10. By the bottom of the 7th inning as the game was coming to an end, Jaguars had scored 7 and Don Bosco Tech had 12.

Rodolfo Mejia after the game was tearing up because of the fact that it was his last game of the season playing baseball. “It was a tough game, but we came out flat and we made a lot of errors, but we picked it up near the end but it was too late already,” said Mejia.

As the game ended, Jaguars went home with a loss but were happy they tried their best and are prepared for them to come more strong next year.
