Eagles take down Spartans in baseball semis; LA & MV softball teams ousted from playoffs

Behind Reelfs’ dominant performance, the 11th-seeded Eagles beat No. 3 Mountain View 7-3 Saturday at Washington Park in Santa Clara. The senior had a no-hitter going for five innings. Relieved by Ryan Baum after the sixth, Reelfs struck out eight batters and walked one. He allowed three hits and three runs, only one of them earned.

Reelfs accomplished this just three days after starting the Eagles’ 9-0 road rout of No. 6 Alisal in the opening round of the playoffs. Coach Gabe Stewart wisely pulled Reelfs after four innings and 68 pitches, making him eligible to take the mound Saturday.

“I wasn’t really expecting that,” the junior said. “It was a good surprise.”
