De La Salle High's Austin Dondanville, top, tries to tag out Granada's Ryan Kirby in a key East Bay Athletic League game on April 17. The Spartans struggled to score against Granada ace Jacob Payne and lost 4-0, but rebounded to post a 13-1 win over Livermore on April 19 to move into a three-way tie for second place in the EBAL standings with Amador Valley and California. Will Siri earned the pitching win against the Cowboys while Hunter Mercado-Hood led De La Salle at the plate, going 2 for 4 with a three-run homer.
