Jesse Yancosek pitched a complete-game three-hitter Wednesday afternoon, leading the Arroyo Grande High baseball team to a 5-0 PAC 7 win over Pioneer Valley.
Seventy-six of Yancosek’s 99 pitches were strikes. The 6-foot-2 senior finished with nine strikeouts and one walk.
“He really threw well. He had them off balance,” Eagles coach Brad Lachemann said. “He pitches with such a good pace that our defense tends to play better behind him; he doesn’t let them sit around much.”
Kyle Kleinsmith was 2 for 3 with an RBI for Arroyo Grande (8-2, 4-1), and Jacob Kephart went 2 for 4.
