Santa Fe Christian 8, Rock Academy 0 – Many thought the Warriors (3-10, 0-6 CL) were barking up the wrong tree coming into this year’s version of the Coastal League and that exactly how it’s played out to date. Through six league matchups, they have been outscored 83-8 after the Eagles (16-5, 5-0 CL) handed them their latest loss on Tuesday afternoon.
LUKE BROWN and DILLON PAULSON each had two hits, but DEAN ELIOTT stole the show going 4-for-4 with a double a 1 RBI. Brown along with COLE WEAVER also had knocked a two-bagger in part of a 13-hit attack.
“Dean was locked in today,” said head coach DON MITCHELL.” It didn’t matter what their guy tried to throw him, he was all over it.”
With four games this week in five days, the rest of his Santa Fe Christian teammates will also need to pull their own weight if they hope to stay undefeated in league play to set up a two game series with Francis Parker next week, which would basically be for the league title.
“We can’t afford to look ahead to anything but tomorrow,” Mitchell added, talking about a big game against rival LJCD.
The game was originally scheduled for last Tuesday, but was rescheduled due to a virus that hit the Solana Beach campus so hard they couldn’t even put a full team on the field.
GRIFFIN RYDIN (1-1) and TYLER STEPHENS combined on the shutout going four and three innings respectively. Together they threw a 2-hitter, each giving up a hit a-piece, but they also ending up plunking six batters and walked three to keep things interesting for the Eagles’ faithful fans, giving them something else to worry about besides catching a virus.
