The Broncos bested their cross-town rivals Tuesday night, beating Stanford University 4-2. Freshman Travis Howard took the hill for Santa Clara, and pitched well, allowing one run over four innings of work.
The San Francisco Giants have been one of the most dominant teams in Major League Baseball for the past six years, winning three World Series Championships. One Santa Clara student has been a part of that organization’s tremendous success.
You can learn a lot about a team when they’re winning, but how they respond after a tough loss is even more telling. The Broncos’ rebound against Gonzaga University spoke volumes about the promising future of Santa Clara baseball.
Over the course of a long season of more than 50 games, almost every team faces its ups and downs. After winning six of their last seven, Santa Clara could not escape this harsh reality, dropping all three games against the University of San Francisco last weekend.
