Half Moon Bay hosted San Mateo on a beautiful Thursday afternoon. HMB did not seem ready to play from the start as San Mateo jumped on The Cougars for 5 runs in the 1st. The Cougars answered with 5 runs of their own Tristan Hofmann, Coleman Colucci, and David Fisher all collected RBI. Dwyer Lewis entered to pitch and held San Mateo to a run in the 2nd. HMB took the lead with Jared Mettam stealing home and another Colucci RBI. The Cougars tacked on another run in the 4th, but then went into cruise control. San Mateo took advantage of a tired Lewis and some bad Cougar defense to score 5 in the 6th. HMB battled back for 2 runs, but it was not enough. HMB falls to (18-6, 8-4) and out of first place in league.
