TEMPLETON — The Templeton Eagles opened their baseball season with a bang this week. Both the offense and the defense for the Eagles look superb in the early part of the season as they have outscored their first two opponents 24-2.

Wednesday, Templeton hosted their bitter rival, the Morro Bay Pirates, and beat them without mercy. The Eagles scored 11 runs in the second inning, but two runs are all they would need for the victory.

Four different players reaching first base three times on the day. Justice Gibbons went three-for-five with three RBI and a triple, Macer Lardner drew two walks and registered two RBI, Nolan Stetz recorded two hits and drew a walk, and freshman Tyler Kaschewski went two-for-three with an RBI.
