Desert Ridge's Barrett leads homer brigade

Posted by on March 18, 2009 – 8:05 pm

Mesa Desert Ridge’s Jake Barrett is on a homer binge his coach has not seen before.
“It’s incredible what he’s doing,” Desert Ridge coach Pat Herrera said. “He’s already got 11 and we’ve played 13 games. He’s hit one in every game of the tournament so far.”

Desert Ridge faced Mesa High Wednesday night in the semifinals of the Victory Classic, held at Gilbert Highland and Desert Ridge high schools. Barrett has seven homers in his last five games, including back-to-back two-homer games prior to the start of the tournament on Monday.

Also knocking the ball out of ballparks at a rapid pace are Mesa Red Mountain’s Cole Gleason (7), Scottsdale Desert Mountain’s Taylor Lindsey, who belted No. 7 on Wednesday; Phoenix Pinnacle’s Ashton McCoy (7), Scottsdale Horizon’s Tommy Joseph (6), Gilbert’s D.J. Peterson (6) and Phoenix Desert Vista’s Jaycob Brugman, who cracked No. 6 on Wednesday.
