The Ayala High School baseball program has had a lot of success lately.
In fact, they haven’t lost a game since May 7th of 2019.
When COVID-19 ended the 2020 season, the Bulldogs were 9-0, and until this past Saturday, they hadn’t taken the field since.
And Ayala picked up right where they left off.
The Bulldogs got 10 fourth-inning runs and cruised past Foothill High School, 12-3.
Aiden Taurek got torched for eight runs on nine hits in three innings, and he was saddled with the loss.

Troy McCain singled three times, drove in a pair of runs and scored.
Luke Solis produced two hits and two runs.

Ryan Moreno singled, scored and drove in one run, and Marcus Galvan singled and scored.
Damien Delgadillo walked twice, scored and had two RBIs.
Ayala out-hit Foothill, 14-7.
Andres Pasillas earned the win for the Bulldogs.
Pasillas went the first three innings, allowing two runs on four hits.
