The Tracy High Bulldogs softball team bashed out 16 hits in a 10-1 win at Chavez High on Tuesday. 

Those included a solo inside-the-park home run for senior Jazmin Clarke, who also batted in a run with a single. Freshman Mikayla Coelho tripled and doubled twice, junior Alee Balanon doubled and singled twice, and junior Madison Ledda had three singles.

Senior starting pitcher Tayler Misfeldt got the win, allowing five hits over seven innings while striking out eight batters.

Millennium 4, Big Valley Christian 3

The Falcons (7-0, 3-0 Central California Athletic Alliance) knocked over another league opponent with a 4-3 win over Big Valley Christian (4-7, 4-1 CCAA) on Tuesday at the Tracy Learning Center.

Millennium High junior Riquel Rivera got the game-winning hit, a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the seventh. Sophomore starting pitcher Amy Wise went all seven innings and struck out five Big Valley batters.

Sierra 7, Kimball 4

Late-inning errors sank the Kimball High Jaguars after they nearly overcame the Sierra High Timberwolves’ early lead Tuesday at the Tracy Sports Complex.

Kimball’s starting pitcher, sophomore Samantha Sarmiento, took the loss after she gave up nine hits and seven runs, only one of them earned, as the Kimball defense racked up nine errors.

Sierra took a 3-0 lead in first, and by the fifth, the Jaguars had tied it up. Sierra scored a run in the sixth and three in the seventh, and Kimball answered with just one run in the bottom of the seventh.

Kimball’s four hits included a solo home run over the center-field fence by senior Danielle Lallos. Senior Gabbi Cox tripled, and senior Llesenia Torres singled twice and stole two bases.
