Jayden Lee hit three hits, including a grand slam, as Marin Catholic boosted its MCAL playoff hopes in a big way with a 7-0 win over TAM on Tuesday.

Lee’s hit in the top of the fourth gave MC Alger (11-11, 9-6) a 4-0 lead. Lee has five RBIs and two runs scored. Liam Smith pitched five innings and limited the Red-tailed Falcons (11-11, 8-7) to three hits.

The win puts MC in a tie for fourth place with Archie Williams but the Wildcats hold the advantage thanks to the season sweep.
