In the first round of the CCCAA NorCal baseball playoffs, the No. 7 seeded Fresno City College took their first round series at Euless Ballpark against the No. 10 seeded Folsom Lake this past weekend.

After falling to Folsom on May 4 in a close game 8-7, the Rams were able to pull away from Folsom on May 5 to take the final two games of the series 14-3 and 6-1 respectively advancing to the Nor-Cal Super Regional next weekend.

In game one of the series, both teams started out strong from the gate, but fielding mistakes led to the demise of the Rams as they were charged with an outstanding seven errors with five of the eight runs given up as a result of them. After falling behind, a late inning surge by the Rams fell just short.

On May 5, with game one behind them, the Rams that stepped on the field locked in as they scored 14 runs with the help from left fielder Nick Sheehan, who finished the weekend 6 for 12 with five RBI, three walks and one home run, and production from right fielder Chet Allison and shortstop Joey Popejoy.

After taking game two of the series, there was no looking back for the Rams as they continued their hot streak at the plate adding six more runs to their weekend and holding Folsom to just one in the deciding game of the first round. Game three was more of the same for the Rams, as pitcher Noah Parsons pitched lights out to pick up his ninth win of the season (9-1), with the help of Sheehan hitting his seventh big fly of the season.

The Rams seemed energized and relaxed in the postseason as video emerged of their dugout dancing in-between pitching changes on Saturday, including third baseman Jacob Paradine jumping onto the dugout fence exuding confidence for both his team and the crowd.

In addition to moving on to the second round of the playoffs, the Rams made their presence felt with the release of the All-Central Valley Conference baseball awards leading the pack with six All-Conference 1st team selections. Sophomore pitcher Noah Parsons, infielder Fernando Guevara, utility man Jacob Paradine, outfielders Nick Sheehan and Isaac Rivera, who was also chosen as a Gold Glove award recipient.

Designated Hitter Ian Ross was also selected for the All-Conference 1st team as well as selected as Freshman of the Year, finishing the season hitting .345 with three home runs and 35 RBIs. Along with Ross, freshman pitcher Daiveyon White was selected as CVC Pitcher of the Year, finishing his season with a record 6-4 with an ERA of 1.94 and 83 strikeouts.

Finally finishing with a unanimous decision, “Mr. 1K” Ron Scott was named CVC Coach of the Year leading his squad to a 30-13 overall record and 17-4 record in conference play while notching his 1,000 career victory this past season.

With their confidence riding high the Rams look to continue their success in the next round as they take on the No. 3 seeded Sacramento City at Sacramento in the Nor-Cal Super Regional series on May 11, 12 and 13 (if necessary).
