From a Vacaville pitcher appearing in the World Series to two South Bay athletes starring in the NFL, multiple Bay Area products performed at the highest possible level over the past week.
Vacaville grad pitches in World Series
Vacaville High School graduate Tony Gonsolin is performing on the biggest stage of professional sports.
Gonsolin pitched 1.1 innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays of game No. 2 in the World Series, allowing one earned run – on a home run – while striking out one batter.
Gonsolin’s top outing of this postseason came in the second game of the National League Championship Series versus the Atlanta Braves, when he struck out seven batters in 4.1 innings.
The 26-year-old from Vacaville was selected by the Dodgers out of St. Mary’s College in the ninth round of the 2016 Major League Baseball Draft.
Brady shines in win over Vegas
Serra alum Tom Brady delivered in every which way during Tampa Bay’s 45-20 victory at the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
Brady completed 33 of 45 passes for 369 yards and four touchdowns, connecting with nine different receivers over the course of the afternoon. It marked the second time this season Brady tossed for 300-plus yards and the third time he tallied three or more touchdown strikes.
The six-time Super Bowl champion, who has not thrown an interception in each of the past three games, is sixth in the NFL in passing yards (1,910) and second in touchdown passes (18).
Adams dominates for Packers again
Davante Adams could simply not be stopped in the Green Bay Packers’ 35-20 victory at the Houston Texans.
Adams, a graduate of Palo Alto High School, caught 13 of Aaron Rodgers’ 23 completions for 196 yards and two scores to help Green Bay to a 5-1 record and a top spot in the NFC North standings.
Adams has 150-plus yards in two of his past four games, as he also registered 156 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 14 catches in a Sept. 13 win at Minnesota.
This year, Adams boasts a team-high 449 receiving yards, which is nearly 200 more than anyone else on the roster – second-year pro Allen Lazard is up to 254.
