The boys’ varsity baseball started off strong in the top of the first inning against Novato High School on tuesday.

After junior Nicola Belgum earned a walk, senior Erik Doctor hit a single to right field. Junior Henry Zeisler followed with a double that sent Belgum and Doctor home. Later, Zeisler scored on a single by Zach Cohen that gave the Giants a 3-0 lead.

Redwood scored their last run in the bottom of the 5th inning after senior Parker Bartlett walked to first and then scored on a double by senior Parker Laret.

Novato scored their first run in the bottom of the third inning and then scored again in the bottom of the fourth.

“We definitely didn’t play as well as I know we can,” senior Zack Kostein said. “At the end of the day we still got the win.”

The Giants won the game 4-2 and will play their next game this Friday.
