Tomales on verge of title

Hanging a section baseball championship banner has been the aim for Tomales seniors since first pulling on the Braves uniform. Now they are one win away.

The top seed in North Coast Section Division 6 handled California School for the Deaf in a Friday semifinal, 11-2, and will host the title contest June 1.

"It's been a goal since we've been freshman," said senior co-captain Juan Avalos. "This is our last chance. We've got to play our best to get it."

Solid defense — no errors Friday — and timely hitting have helped Tomales hold off opponents. Steady pitching is another hallmark of the season, with Morgan Giammona tossing a complete game Friday.

"Fewer walks, that's been my goal, and to increase velocity. We're playing our best right now," Giammona said.
