Estancia shut out in first round

April 13, 2003

Pacifica High senior pitcher Drew Mulkern had a perfect game going

through 5 2/3 innings and he finished with a two-hitter to lift the

Mariners past Estancia in a Pride of the Coast Tournament first-round

game at Pacifica Saturday.

Mulkern struck out five with no walks, while Estancia had two

baserunners in the game and none advanced to second base. Pacifica

(12-0) scored four runs in the first two innings, playing as the


"visiting" team, and never looked back.

With two out in the fifth inning, Estancia junior Matt Ronquillo

reached on a bunt, but Mulkern got the next batter out. In the bottom

of the seventh inning, Estancia junior Cullen Crom singled for the

Eagles' final hit.

Tyler Hoffman, the Eagles' junior pitcher, turned in a complete

game that came with five strikeouts. He scattered seven hits and

allowed three earned runs.

Estancia (3-11) will return to action in the Pride of the Coast

Tournament Monday at 2 p.m. at Estancia, where the Eagles will take

on the Los Amigos-Covina loser. Estancia has lost twice in as many

meetings with Los Amigos this season.
