We’re just about halfway through the league seasons in high school baseball, and that means many of the county’s best hitters are really locking into their strokes at the plate.

Brett Moriarty of Menlo-Atherton went 3-for-4 with four runs RBIs during the his team’s 9-1 win over Terra Nova. Batting in the five hole, he drove in one during M-A’s five-run first inning, later stealing home on the back end of a double steal. He drilled a two-run double to right-center field in the fifth and added another RBI in the sixth.

Sean McHugh of Mills drove in three runs and had three hits in the Vikings’ 7-5 win over El Camino. He hit a solo home run one pitch after Mike McWhirter clubbed a three-run shot in the top of the first. McHugh legged out an infield hit to drive in his second run in the fourth inning and singled to center to drive in the Vikings’ final run of the game in the sixth inning.

Dominic Giuliani of El Camino baseball went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in the Colts’ 7-5 loss to Mills.

It was a solid two-win week for the Padres of Serra High School.

Serra beat the Fighting Irish of Sacred Heart Cathedral 9-0 in Friday’s West Catholic Athletic League matchup. The Padres were led by senior center fielder Jordan Paroubeck who had four hits, including a home run, two doubles, four RBIs, two runs scored and a stolen base.

Earlier in the week, a player who’s been in a groove since the beginning of the season continued his winning ways. Orlando Razo led the Padres to a 7-0 win over Archbishop Riordan. Razo pitched a shutout, allowing just two hits while striking out four.

Mickey McDonald racked up three RBIs on three hits, singling in the third and fifth innings along with doubling in the sixth.

Sequoia swept South San Francisco last week in a pair of blowouts. Spencer Smith and Zane Gelphman combined for a couple of complete games on the bump for the Cherokees. Marcus Avelar, Chris Ortiz, Liam Clifford and Gelphman had big weeks at the dish. The quartet combined for 10 RBIs.

Aldo Severson pitched his way to a victory and hit a home run in a loss to Half Moon Bay. ... Is anyone swinging a hotter stick than recently called up from Carlmont’s frosh/soph outfielder Aaron Albaum? The sophomore had another big hit in the Scots’ Wednesday win over Burlingame. ... The Panthers returned the favor though. In a 17-run barrage, Jian Lee and Vince Arobio drove in three runs. ... Menlo got off to a 2-0 start in WBAL play. ... Adam Greenstein led the way with the Knight’s first home run of the year, a solo shot in the third that started a 14-run inning.

Days later, Menlo’s Mikey Diekroeger who went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and a stolen base in a win against The King’s Academy.
