Catching up with the 45s

After a successful opening weekend, the Colt 45s have played nine games and hosted a three day youth baseball camp. Here's the recap! 

June 3rd, 4th, 5th series vs. Seattle Studs: The Colt 45s faced a tough opponent, dropping all three games of the series 6-8, 2-3, and 4-8 respectively. We saw great crowds and were happy to have Shasta Regional Medical Center, Redding Rotary, and Foothill Little League as our respective nonprofit partners of each night. June 3rd was the first ever Flash Mob so click here to check it out! 

June 8th, 9th series vs. Novato Knicks: The Colt 45s split the series, taking the first game 5-2 and dropping the second 4-5. On June 8th, RHP Brandon Lupton was the winning pitcher with Seth Kaneen picking up the save. OF Andres Alburjas and INF Chase Larsen each hit a home run. One SAFE Place and Cottonwood Little League were the nonprofit partners of the series. Cottonwood Little League hit a few home runs of their own as they sold 1,400 tickets, the most ever by a nonprofit partner! 

June 10th, 11th, 12th vs. Redding Tigers: After a last minute schedule change, the Colt 45s faced the Redding Tigers in a three game series. The weather was beautiful, the park was packed, and the bats were swinging! The 45s swept the Tigers 12-2, 24-4, and 14-6. Haven Humane was the nonprofit partner on Friday and they even brought two rescue dogs along, one of which was adopted! West Redding Little League night on Saturday was a success as young athletes sporting their jerseys could be spotted at every turn.

Opening Weekend Recap

Opening Weekend Recap:

The "Boys of Summer" 2016 Season kicked off with a BANG! Over 1,000 FANS came out for Opening Night to watch the Colt 45s take on the Rally Factory Rockhounds in the first of a three game series. With Grant Elementary Choir setting the tone with a beautiful performance of the National Anthem, nostalgia was in the air! The 45s were rolling for the majority of the game staking a 7-1 lead in 7th inning, but some costly errors late in the game saw the Rockhounds come out on top with 12-10 win. The "Boys of Summer" bounced back in front of 689 fans on Saturday night with a 6-2 victory that was highlighted by OF Ryan Williams (Cal Baptist Univ) 2R HR! RHP Jake Angelo (Harris Stowe College) 3(IP) 2(H) 1(BB) 4(SO) was impressive on the mound getting his first W of the summer. With the series tied 1-1 the rubber match game on Sunday did not disappoint. 825 Colt 45 fans saw four Colt 45s pitchers combine for a 4 hit shutout in a 3-0 win. RHP Brandon Lupton (Shasta College) was the WP 2(IP) 0(H) 3(SO) and LHP Andrew Arnold picked of his first SV of the summer. 1B Jared Bertotti (Simpson University/Lassen High School) went 2X3 1(R) 1(3B) and INF Ryan Torres-Torioka (Hawaii Pacific University) went 2X3 with a run scored.
