Highland Slams Palmdale, 13-3

May 04, 1999

Junior Tom Gonzales threw a five-hitter and senior Brandon Golphenee drove in five runs to lead Highland High to a 13-3 victory over host Palmdale in a Golden League baseball game Monday that was called after six innings because of the 10-run rule.

Gonzales (3-2) struck out five and walked two to help Highland (15-6, 9-2 in league play) move into a tie for first place.

Golphenee hit a two-out grand slam in the fifth inning after Palmdale (15-6, 9-2) intentionally walked junior John Santor, who led off the second and fourth with home runs.

Santor scored four runs for Highland, which will play Palmdale in two of its remaining four league games.
