Senior Andrew Basaldua was pegged with the loss for Patterson, after he tossed five innings that included five runs (one earned) on six hits, walking one and striking out three.
The Tigers defense also did Basaldua no favors, as they committed five errors overall. After playing mistake-free defense in dropping its season opener 3-1 to Hilmar High on March 3, Patterson has averaged more than five errors per game in its last two contests.
Sophomore Antonio Bustos led the Tigers' offense going 2-for-4 with an RBI and one run scored. Senior Sal Becerra went 1-for-2 at the plate. Senior Zantino Bustos (1-for-3) and Basaldua (1-for-4, 1 run) each contributed a hit for Patterson.
The Tigers will play a Tuesday, March 11 game at Sierra High of Manteca. Game time is 4 p.m.
