St. John Bosco hasn't played in a baseball playoff game since the 2011 season. The drought is about to end. The Braves are in first place in the Trinity League with an 18-4 overall record and 6-1 league mark.
Their latest triumph came on Tuesday, when they hit three home runs in a 16-0 win over Santa Margarita. Charlie Nasuti, who just committed to Purdue, hit a grand slam and had six RBI. Sebastian Orduno and Jack Collette each had three hits. John Beller threw five shutout innings.
It's taken three years for Don Barbara to turn around the Braves, and they are ranked No. 1 in Southern Section Division 2.
