The Oakland Tech Bulldog Baseball season came to an end Thursday with a 5-2 loss to repeat champion Lowell.
After a rough first inning, in which Tech surrendered 5 runs, at least 3 of them unearned, pitchers Marcus and Josh settled down to shut out Lowell the rest of the way.
A 2-out, 2-run rally in the 3rd inning, including hits by Ben and Marcus, provided the only scoring for Tech, which graduates 9 seniors from this year’s varsity squad.

OUSD is looking at several proposals to make changes to Rickey Henderson Field (RHF) and the space beyond the outfield fence. Changes are coming, we just aren’t sure what those changes will be or what they will mean for the OTHS Baseball program.
Perhaps some of you saw this news article on this in the Contra Costa Times. There is a huge push on to change the field and so far the conversation has been pretty focused on the needs of the Oakland International HS soccer group.
On Saturday there will be a “Town Hall Meeting” at Rickey Henderson Field at 12:45 (at the end of the field work day) and the District Consultant tasked with preparing the plans will be coming to RHF to share his proposals with us. It is your opportunity to ask questions, to give comments and share your ideas.
We need to have as many Baseball parents and players (both V and JV) there as possible. The future appearance and functionality of RHF will be determined in the next few months. If you are working at the field prior to the meeting, please plan to stay. If you aren’t able to join the workday, please be there by 12:40, so we can start with the briefing on time.
We will arrange to have some water and snacks on hand. The meeting should be done by 2 pm.
This is really important. I look forward to seeing you at the Town Hall Meeting.

The Oakland Tech varsity baseball team clinched their fourth consecutive OAL title Wednesday, defeating runner-up Skyline, 3-1.
A 2-out Skyline error plated 2 runs in the second inning. The Bulldogs gave one run back in the top of the third on a 2 out walk, stolen base, and dropped pop fly. But the defense and pitching of Daniel Dal Pino was too much for the Titans to overcome.
Even if the Bulldogs lose their final game to McClymonds next week, they would be OAL champs by way of their tie-breaking head-to-head record (2-1) against second-place Skyline.
Tech will play Lowell in the TransBay Tournament starting Tuesday, May 14th. Here is the TransBay schedule:
May 14 San Francisco St., San Francisco 4:00
May 17 Rickey Henderson Field, Oakland 4:00
May 21 San Francisco St., San Francisco 4:00 (if necessary)

The Washington High School baseball team found itself in the same position this time last season.
It had won the opener of the Transbay Series against Oakland Tech and went into the second game with a chance to claim its first inter-section title since 2006.
The Eagles failed to get the job done a year ago, but did not let the opportunity slip away again.
Behind a strong performance from junior Christopher Hau on the mound and at the plate, Washington was able to avenge its 2011 Transbay loss by scoring four runs in the first inning and three more in the fourth to beat Oakland Tech 7-4 on Tuesday at San Francisco State University, sweeping the best-of-three series.

“We talked about our approach,” said Washington head coach Rob Fung. “We have quite a few seniors on this team and they had a taste of it [last year]. We had a better approach coming into this series.”

Fifth inning home run by Washington sinks Oakland Tech in TransBay Series opener

Javon Phillips hit a go-ahead two-run opposite field home run in the fifth inning to propel Washington High-San Francisco to a 5-3 win over Oakland Tech in Game 1 of the TransBay Series on Friday at Rickey Henderson Field in Oakland.
The Eagles (22-9) can close out the series Tuesday when the teams meet at San Francisco State at 4 p.m. Washington is seeking its first TransBay title since 2006.
Phillips’ blast, which cleared the 20-foot fence that protects the short 265-foot power alley in right center field, gave Washington a 4-3 lead. The Eagles added an insurance run in the sixth on an RBI single by Zach Dair.
“When it came off the bat, I knew I had it,” Phillips said. “I knew it had the height and the distance to go. It felt pretty good knowing that swing of the bat gave my team the lead.”
Dane Vande Guchte earned the win, allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings of work. Alex Skevos pitched a scoreless seventh for the save.
Oakland Tech, the two-time defending TransBay champion, hopes it can repeat history. This is the third straight season the Bulldogs have dropped the first game of the series, but they rallied to win the final two games the past two years. Last year’s title came against Washington.
Tech (13-10) took a 1-0 lead in the first on an RBI single by Christopher Castillo. After Washington tied it, Evan Williams stole home in the second to make it 2-1. An RBI double by Alejandro Wlassowsky in the third made it 3-1.
The Eagles pushed across a run in the fourth, and Phillips put them ahead in the fifth.
