This spring break the Roseville High School baseball team played in a spring baseball tournament. The Tigers finished the tournament with a 2-2 overall record, beating Whitney and Vintage, and losing to Ponderosa and Del Campo.

Roseville beat Whitney with a score of 13-2, with the help of great pitching from senior Brandon Renstrom. Renstrom went 4 ⅓ innings in the win, giving up 2 unearned runs while walking none and striking out 4. The Tigers were led by great offense from players such as Josh Alger 2×3 HR, Landon Wallace 3×4, Ben Baker 2×3, Joey Morris 2×3, and Dylan Ranallo going 2×3.

Renstrom, while believing pitching and defense is big, offense keeps the team together.

“We played a great defensive game, but our offense is what got us out of that game early and in 5 innings,” Renstrom said.

Roseville beat Vintage in a walk off base hit by Ben Baker, winning the game 6-5. Trace Manna got the start on the mound and went 4 ⅔ innings allowing 4 runs, with 3 walks, and striking out 1. The offense again kept the team in the game scoring three runs in the last inning to secure the win. Landon Wallace hit is second home run, Brennan Eid, Rylan Woods, Jordan Susbilla, and Dylan Rose all had a hit in the game. Josh Alger and Ben Baker went 2×4.

Sticking in the game and not giving up was the key to this win.

“We stayed in the game and battled hard all game, and when we got the chances in the last inning we capitalized on them and scored to secure us the win,” Renstrom said.

These wins pushed their overall record to 8-12.
