Washington completes 2-gane sweep of Galileo 

Two games in two days against the same team equaled the same result for the Washington baseball team.

Kevin Shue pitched an eight-hitter and O’Koyea Dickson went 2-for-3 with three RBIs to lead the Eagles past Galileo at Big Rec, the second consecutive time in as many days Washington beat its Academic Athletic Association rival in convincing fashion.

With the win, the Eagles moved two games ahead of the Lions in the AAA standings. Washington is 13-2, while Galileo falls to 11-4.

With the score tied 3-3, Washington exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a commanding 12-3 lead. Every Eagles batter scored in the inning except for Steven Lin, with Tommy Mora crossing the place twice. Dickson smashed a two-run double in the rally and Mora blasted a bases-loaded triple that capped off the rally. Brendan Lee and Tony Ng also added RBI singles for the Eagles in the inning.

Galileo actually took a 3-0 lead in the first inning on the strength of RBI hits from Danny Huang, Chris Barber and Dylan Nelson.

Washington tied things up in the bottom of the third, taking advantage of Lions starting pitcher Cody Klein’s control problems to score three runs on just one hits. The Eagles’ three RBIs in the inning came on a bases-loaded walk by Ozzie Davis, a groundout by Chris McMahon and a sacrifice fly by Dickson.

"Coach told us to be patient at the plate and wait for our pitches," said Dickson, whose Eagles defeated Galileo 14-4 on Wednesday. "If we can get our bats going, we feel we like we can’t be stopped. But even though we’ve Gal twice in a row, we still feel like we haven’t got that much respect and that we’re still the underdogs. We want to keep that mindset for the rest of the season."

Balboa 21, Mission 3

Carlos Frias went 3-for-3 with two doubles and Nik Fangolino also had three hits as the Buccaneers (15-14-1, 12-2 AAA) beat the Bears (4-11, 4-10). Balboa will play Lincoln on Wednesday in the first round of the San Francisco Section playoffs.
