Pleasanton’s baseball team won threePleasantonstraight games in the middle4/26 of last week, but has struggled to find consistency.
After beating Nixon- Smiley 7-1 on March 5, the Eagles (4-9-1) won their first two games of the Pearsall Tournament on March 7. First, the boys in green and white edged Crystal City 2-1. John Briseno struck out six batters in six innings. Kameron Parks drove in a run in the fourth inning for a 2-0 lead. Hilton Mehrmann walked three times.
That evening, Mehrmann struck out nine batters in seven innings in a 5-2 win against Poth.
“He has a great presence about himself and he does set a great tone and it carries through the team because when he’s on the mound, the team plays with a lot more confidence,” Pleasanton head coach Jeff Niemietz said of Mehrmann, who has 31 strikeouts through 21 innings.
The Eagles scored three runs in the fourth and two in the fifth. Keith Cordova went 3-for-4, including a two-run triple in the fourth. Mehrmann, Devyn
