Falcons win first game in NorCal Regionals

JC softball


FAIRFIELD — While the bat’s were cold, the pitcher in the circle was hot, as usual.

Shannon Mestas struck out 12 for the Solano Community College softball team as it defeated Butte College 3-2 to open the best-of-three first round of the NorCal Regionals, Saturday, extending the Falcons’ win streak to 30.

Mestas allowed two earned runs, four hits and four walks in her complete game for the Falcons (38-2).

Errors in the second inning allowed the home team to get on the scoreboard as Jade Bactad hit a ground ball to short that scored Mestas and Emily Goode, who had both previously reached base on overthrows from the Roadrunners’ defense.

The bases were loaded in the bottom of the fourth for SCC as Britney Taglieri hit a dribbler to the pitcher and beat the throw to first base, scoring Goode who led off the inning with a single to left-center.

Assistant coach Penelope Crouse-Feehan attributed the lack of offense to jitters.

“We just didn’t hit. Our approach at the plate was too relaxed. . . . It was a slow start to a long weekend,” the coach said. “We plan on coming out (Sunday) faster and hotter and would like to get three to five runs an inning. (Sunday), we’ll get back to Solano softball” .

The Falcons host game two in the series on Sunday at noon, with a third game to follow, if necessary.
