Ryan Bryne is carrying some heavy expectations and a heavy bat for Marin Catholic.
The Wildcats trounced McKinleyville 14-2 in five innings on Friday. Top-seeded Marin Catholic baseball (18-7-1) is back in action Tuesday at 4 p.m. against Justin-Siena (21-7). The Wildcats are just one step away from the North Coast Section Division 4 championship game.
Bryne pounded out a big triple against McKinleyville and is 4-for-5 in two NCS playoff games.
