MORAGA, Calif. — When St. Mary’s head coach Eric Valenzuela approached his team in shallow left field following the Gaels’ 6-5 win over Washington, he was looking down at his shoes and lumbering deliberately. When he finally got in the middle of his team, he looked up and blurted out, “Big Win! That’s a good team win!”
That was followed by a raucous round of yells and howls from his squad.
Six-to-five. Against a team that was ranked as high as No. 12 in some polls.
