San Carlos resident and St. Francis High grad Connor Basch hopes to be playing baseball at the University of Washington in the fall.
Unlike his former Lancers' teammate Braden Bishop though, Basch is guaranteed nothing when he shows up in Seattle this fall. All he wants is a chance to walk on.
Basch showed what he was capable of doing on Sunday, collecting four hits, including a triple, in San Carlos' 10-6 win over visiting Daly City on Sunday at Burton Park in the first game of a Peninsula Joe DiMaggio baseball doubleheader.
Things didn't go as well in the second game, as Daly City rebounded to win, 15-11.
The San Carlos Seals made it interesting though, scoring seven runs in the final two innings to make it close as Carlmont High senior Josh Faulkner held Daly City scoreless over the final three innings.
Carlmont's Jessie Austin got the win in the first game as San Carlos scored four runs in the sixth for the margin of victory.
Woodside High junior Bradley Degnan had two hits in the first game.
Carlmont's Willie Baroncini, Serra High grad Ryan Strombom and Serra's Matt Michelini each had two hits in the second game.
Basch appeared in 22 games for the Lancers, who shared the West Catholic Athletic League championship with Serra. St. Francis was 11-2-1 in WCAL play and 26-5-1 overall.
Bishop, who attended Central Middle School in San Carlos, hit .413 for the Lancers and signed a letter of intent to play at Washington. The Atlanta Braves drafted him in the 36th round of this year's First-Year Player Draft.
Basch said he was going to give it a shot when he reports to school.
