Santa Fe Christian 7, La Jolla Country Day 4 – There are several baseball aficionado around the county that have the Eagles (17-5, 6-0 CL) ranked in their weekly Top 10 poll the past couple of weeks.
So far, Santa Fe Christian is making them look like geniuses as they haven’t loss since and are now on a 6-game winning streak.
“We’re definitely playing really good ball right now,” admitted Eagles’ skipper DON MITCHELL. “The most important thing we are doing a good job at it scoring early putting pressure on our opponents to score off of our pitchers and that can be a reals daunting task to handle.”
TYLER LEDBETTER was the main culprit against the Torreys (10-9, 2-3 CL) on Wednesday afternoon after blasting his second home run of the year with a 2-run blast to left center field in the top of the second inning.
DILLON PAULSON got the victory on the mound for SFC improving his record to 6-1, but also helped his own cause by smashing a 3-run shot in the third inning.
“Dillon did a great job of hitting all his spots on all three of his pitches tonight,” Mitchell added. “He did a great job of keeping them off-balanced, but his and Tyler homers were absolute bombs.”
SFC catcher LUKE VANDERTIE went 2-for-3 with a RBI double, while BRANDON WACHS and TRAVIS WILKIE each had one of their own for LJCD.

Horizon 7, Bishop’s 4 – Just like SFC, the Panthers (15-8, 3-2 CL) jumped out to an early 6-0 lead. RONALD STOKES started the scoring with a RBI single in the first and added another in a 5-run second inning outburst on his way to a 2-for-4 day with 3 RBI and three stolen bases.
