The South Fork Cubs got the new baseball season off to a winning start on Wednesday with a comfortable 17-2 victory at Potter Valley.
Senior Tanner Curran, one of six players to just recently join the team after the Cubs’ long basketball run, had a big day at the plate and finished 2-for-2 with a two-run home run.
John Harding also had a big day, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs, while Justin Freitas was 3-for-3 with a triple.
Jonah Wansick got the start on the mound and pitched two hitless innings for the win, while striking out four.
Jasper Shafer also looked good in relief.
“We’re still working out different lineups, but we’re excited with the squad we have,” said head coach Chris Contreras, who admitted his team was a little rusty in the opener. “I have a very versatile team. Lots of players can play multiple positions.”
Next up, the Cubs will play at the Maxwell High tournament on Friday, opening against Esparto High.
