The Ray baseball team extended its winning streak to six games with wins over Bowie, San Carlos, and Superior last week. The Bearcats, who are ranked seventh in the most current AIA rankings, have won nine of their last eleven games and are one game behind 5th-ranked San Manuel in the sectional standings. The ‘Cats played at San Manuel on Tuesday.

In the 7 – 6 win over San Carlos last week, the Bearcats held off a late rally by the Braves to hold on for the victory. Derek Pacheco and Dominic Bravo each tripled for the ‘Cats versus the Braves. Bravo also drove in three runs in the game.

Jacob Pace was the winning pitcher. He allowed four runs, one earned, on four hits. He walked two and struck out eleven.

The Bearcats will close out their regular season on Wednesday at Duncan. The game is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. They will wait for the release of the playoff brackets on Thursday, May 1, to find out their next opponent.
