The Wolfpack pounced quickly in the final game of the regular season as they overwhelmed Murrieta Mesa 10-0 last Thursday afternoon, May 15 in the regular season finale.

Great Oak starting pitcher Brad Wegman scattered five hits over five innings as he combined with reliever Eli Lingos to shut out the Rams.

Great Oak wasted no time as they scored five runs in their first at bat and jumped out to a huge 5-0 lead. The Wolfpack never looked back. Great Oak had another big inning in the fourth as they scored four more times against the listless Rams. They added another insurance run in the sixth as the Wolfpack captured the Southwestern League title and earned an automatic berth to the CIF SS Division 2 Playoffs.

Junior Mitch Hayes led the Wolfpack offensive attack against the Rams, driving in two runs and scoring another. Hunter Arriaga scored twice and drove in a run while Eli Lingos tripled, scored and knocked in a run.

The Rams will lick their wounds and start preparing for 2015. Murrieta Mesa fielded a very young team this season and will lose only 3 seniors to graduation. Coach Frank Castillion has high hopes for the emerging Ram baseball programís future. They finished 4-12 in league.

The Wolfpack was ranked number one in the latest CIF SS Division 2 Polls. Vista Murrieta was number three and Temecula Valley ninth. This is a very tough league and Great Oak rose to the top and looks to go deep into the playoffs.
