LAHS baseball team has 2-1 week

The Los Altos High baseball team last week bounced back from its first loss of the season by defeating Leland 4-2 Saturday.

Alex Reelfs pitched a complete game – throwing a no-hitter until the sixth – and struck out nine. Ben Parker drove in two runs in the fourth with a double.

Alex Reelfs and Zach Fuchs combined for a one-hitter Saturday as the Los Altos High baseball team opened its season with a 15-2 rout of San Lorenzo Valley.

Up 3-2 after five innings, the visiting Eagles exploded for 12 runs over the next two frames. Ben Parker totaled four hits and Aaron Parker drove in three runs.

Strotman starts on path toward big-league career

Drew Strotman makes his professional debut with the Hudson Valley Renegades. The Homestead High graduate was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays last month.

Drew Strotman’s foray into pitching started innocently enough. When Homestead High’s junior-varsity baseball team faced an arms shortage near the end of his sophomore season, the first-year coaching staff asked: “Who can pitch?”

Strotman – who hadn’t taken the mound since Little League – didn’t consider volunteering until a teammate did.

As a freshman last year, Justin Nam didn’t get to contribute much to Menlo School’s Central Coast Section Division II championship baseball team. This year, however, the Los Altos Hills resident played a significant role in the Knights’ successful defense of the title.

The infielder and relief pitcher was twice called upon to get the final out in the playoffs, and he took care of business in both one-run games.
