Santa Fe Christian 12, Horizon 1 – There’s some teams you can get away with small errors – here and there – and still have a chance to win at the end of the day. Simple, minor mistakes can be handled without suffering any damage if you just stay the course.
Somehow, one certain flock of Eagles didn’t get that memo…
Recently picked as the favorite to win the Coastal League crown this year, Santa Fe Christian (13-5, 2-0 CL) looked every bit the part from the get-go as the Panthers (10-7, 0-1 CL) learned you give this team an inch, because they’ll take a mile.
“Horizon had a good record and they were coming off a big high from winning their division of the Lions Tournament,” said head coach DON MITCHELL. “Our league this year is very competitive this year and no one can afford to have any hiccups or things will quickly be out of their hands.”
In the top of the first inning, DEAN ELIOTT and CHASE BUSHOR were both plunked with one out. COLE WEAVER, DILLON PAULSON, BRIAN BLATNICK and TYLER LEDBETTER each followed with singles. After a fly out, LUKE VANDERTIE drew a walk and TYLER STEPHENS also walked with the bases loaded to make it 5-0 early.
“We talked about getting off to a good start on a league road game all day long,” Mitchell added. “I didn’t expect us to bat through the lineup twice in two innings, but I’m proud of our guys playing as good as they did after they beat us here last year.”
Bushor walked to lead off the second and then stole his 7th base of the season, setting up 3 more singles and an error let things get out of control early.
If you give junior ace COLE ACOSTA one or two runs to work with he will give you a good chance of winning that game, but give him an 8-0 lead after two innings and you might as well call the game.
The strong righty threw 5 innings of work, scattered a pair of hits and ran his Coastal League leading strikeout total to 50 after fanning six and ind improving his record to 5-2 in the process.
Weaver (2 RBI) and Paulson (3 RBI) each ended the day going 3-for-5 with three runs scored between them. Blatnick and Ledbetter both went 2-for-3 and WILL FINNERTY had a RBI double in the seventh.
KALANI NAKAMURA led Horizon with two hits in four plate appearances, but 5 errors and 2 hit batters eventually did themselves in. The two will face off again Friday in Solana Beach with first pitch slated for 3:15.

La Jolla Country Day 11, Bishop’s 0 – Torreys’ head coach JOHN EDMAN loves to play small ball to put together a single tally when needed and he’s one of the best, if not thee best at doing so. It really just comes down to his players execution to see if it works or not.
On Tuesday, what began as a single tally turned into an avalanche of run support for La Jolla Country Day pitcher BRENNAN RUBIN and he did the rest. The freshman rolled his record to 3-1 by blanking Bishop’s for six innings, allowing only two hits and striking out 7.
RYAN KAWANO got the first hit of the game in the top of the third and then ZACH WEISZ sacrificed him to second. His brother KEATON WEISZ singled to put runners on the corners and then a double steal made it 1-0.
After that point, the Torreys (8-7, 1-1 CL) continued to add on five more runs in that frame with a pair of walks, two more singles and doubles by both EDWARD ZHU and CHRIS BEE.
Bishop’s (10-7, 0-2 CL) was able to retain that same score until the last two frames, when the Torreys added on two and three more runs respectively to make it a blowout.
Keaton Weisz and JAYLON KING each went 4-for-5 at the plate for LJCD. BRANDON WACHS, MATT YANDEL and Bee each had 2 RBI.
Francis Parker 26, The Rock Academy 0 – As predicted, many baseball prognosticators knew the Warriors were spending this season barking up the wrong tree trying to hang with the rest of the Coastal League and after one game they were absolutely right.
JAKE WIEGAND threw a complete game 3-hit shutout for the Lancers (11-7, 2-0 CL), but the game was never really fair…the Warriors (3-6, 0-1 CL) are waaaay out of their league.
Out of the 17 different players Parker sent to the plate only 3 didn’t register a hit. Only four of them didn’t register a run and 10 of them cashed in for doubles in a very ugly game.
NICK ALLEN, JONAH DAVIS and NATE GLASSER (1-2-3 of the FP lineup) combined to go 8-for-14 with 8 runs scored, 11 hits (6 doubles) and 9 RBI. RYAN RISSE also scored four runs for the Lancers in the blowout.

Smitty’s Selections – 2014 Coastal League Predictions

April 21, 2014 by smitty in Baseball, Recaps with 0 Comments

1. SANTA FE CHRISTIAN (12-5) – The Eagles are the odds on favorites to claim the 2014 Coastal League crown and it’s mostly because of their three-headed monster consisting of starting pitchers. DILLON PAULSON, COLE ACOSTA and CHASE BUSHOR have combined to go 11-4 with a stingy 1.33 ERA mark and a total of seven complete games. Bushor has also thrown a no-hitter this season.

2. FRANCIS PARKER (10-7) – Probably the most complete defensive around the league is the Lancers. They also have shown the most power this season with 4 home runs, which isn’t exactly something to brag about but that’s the facts. GRANT SHIVES is their ace posting a 4-0 record and a 0.99 ERA, but the starting pitching tails off after that, however the bullpen has been solid so far.

3. HORIZON (12-6) – This might be one spot too high or one too low for the Panthers. They have a great pitching, but they also can sometimes have their problems in the field. If you catch them on a good defensive day…you’re in trouble. Offensively, they can be streaky both good and bad. They are tops in the league with 37 extra base hits and have five players with double digits RBI. If they aren’t swinging, along with not knowing what defense will take the field that day they are a true wild card.

4. LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY (7-7) – The Torreys have faced one of the toughest non-league schedules to begin the year and if they are completely healthy, it’s not out of the realm that they could compete for the title or at least make things very interesting. But if their ace is out for a more extended period of time than he already has been I find that very hard to believe. The good news is that even if they don’t they’re so young compared to the rest of the league, they could possibly be just a year or two away.

5. BISHOP’S (10-6) – The Knights biggest problem is fielding. It’s hard enough to win against in baseball without committing errors, but if you’re constantly shooting yourself in the foot in Coastal League competition it’s gonna take a lot to win. The good news however, is that they have enough pitching and offense to win a lot of ball games. The only question is will they?

6. ROCK ACADEMY (3-5) – The Warriors are in a rebuilding year…there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. They are definitely over-matched against the Coastal League, but they did manage to pick up a trio of non-league wins.

Panthers Tackle the Lions Trophy Once Again

April 18, 2014 by smitty in Baseball, Recaps with 0 Comments

By Andrew Smith
Chula Vista (4/17/2014) – For the second straight year, the Horizon Panthers won the Division 3A title of the 64th annual Lions Tournament. LANE O’DEA was named tournament MVP after hurling 6 innings for his third win of the season in a 7-2 victory over Escondido and cranked out three doubles at the plate in .

“Today was just an absolute blast,” he said with a smile form ear-to-ear. “This couldn’t have gone any better for us. The defense we played was today was the best I think we’ve ever played with diving stops in the infield along with diving grabs from our outfielders, it’s just an awesome feeling right now.”

However, none of Thursday’s action would’ve ever happened for the Panthers (12-6) if it weren’t for the amazing comeback the had on Tuesday against McCarthy, a team from Sacramento.

Head coach SETH LOH gathered them together and told them to wake up, because with an early start it looked as if they were all sleep walking and it worked.

They didn’t have a single hit the first time through the order and were trailing 4-0 in the fourth inning before KALANI NAKAMURA hit a double that led to five more and they scored 7 runs over the next two innings to complete a miraculous comeback.

But the legend of their skipper’s prophecy doesn’t end there, as they gathered in left field at Valhalla for their after game huddle he told them this…

“If you guys really want to win and be a good team you can’t come out the way you started today.” he scorned. “If we bring that energy we had in the fourth inning today to the field every game in the first inning we will win.”
Their next game on Wednesday against Castle Park it was a win or go home situation and Horizon scored 3 runs in the first inning to win 4-3.

“We definitely needed a spark as a team,” O’Dea added. “Ever since then it hasn’t died down.”

In Thursday morning’s semifinals game against University High from Irvine, the game was tied 2-2 in the fifth until the tournament MVP smoked a double on a line drive to center field scoring JAKE CARRASCO O’CONNELL. He later was plated on a CHRISTIAN ARLINGTON single and they scored two more in the sixth to help preserve a 6-4 victory.
In the championship game the game was tied 2-2 into the fifth until the Panthers erupted for 4 runs.

O’Dea started it with a leadoff double. Nakamura followed with a bunt single and then RONALD STOKES was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

“Ronald and Kalani did a great job all tournament by getting on base for us,” O’Dea added. “It didn’t always have to be a hit, but they constantly drew walks and set things up for the rest of our team. It also helps when CARTER WATSON is on fire hitting right after them.”

Throughout the week Watson’s stats speak for themselves. He raked by having a .692 batting average, going 9-for-13 and had 8 RBI. He also scored 8 runs, hit five doubles and swiped 4 stolen bases.

“It’s probably the best week I’ve had in my entire life,” said Watson. “As a team though, we had a lot of clutch hitting and we got a great boost from ANTHONY PIZZO on the mound. He won that game against McCarthy in his first start of the season and by pitching so good he allowed us to be able to save Lane for the championship round.”

Their skipper might be a man of few words and possibly even less smiles when it comes to the media, but in just his second year his legend seems to be growing with two Lions’ titles under his belt in as many tries. Even if he might a prophet, he still owes his team “poles” for showing up late one day after making the entire team run the same for the same offense.

Whatever he owed them…the team should make him double it, if not triple or quadruple the number for how great they played this week.

April 15 Lions Tournament Results

April 15, 2014 by smitty in Baseball, Recaps with 0 Comments

By Andrew Smith

San Diego (4/15/2014) – The second day of the Lions Tournament had a pair of fantastic finishes around the Coastal League, but there was one comeback nobody saw coming…

The winds were swirling straight in from the outfield fences at Valhalla high for Tuesday’s AAA Division game between Horizon and McClatchy. Through three innings of play the Panthers seemed completely dazed and confused.

At the time, they were being over-powered by a lanky right hander and what looked like an overall better team, and they even helped the Lions easily jump out to a 4-0 lead with a few egregious errors.

We looked like we were asleep out there and didn’t come to play,” said coach SETH LOH. “Their pitcher had all of us off-balanced, so I gather them in them in the dugout and told them to wake up if they wanted to win this game.”

Fortunately, the Panthers got the message loud and clear…

With the wind conditions any kind of extra base hit seemed out of the question, but they started dropping down from the heavens and Horizon miraculously pulled off a stunning 7-4 come back.

It was just crazy,” senior CARTER WATSON described of their rally. “A lot of guys were really down, but once we got that first hit to lead off the inning after coach’s speech it just sparked us all.”

Watson ended the day 2-for-3 with 3 RBI, but KALANI NAKAMURA was the culprit of that first hit as he laced a double to the gap. RONALD STOKES then ripped one of his own to right-center field and Watson followed suit with the Panthers’ (9-6) third straight 2-bagger cutting the Lions (6-10) lead in half with on six pitches into the gusty winds.

They would end up running themselves out of that inning with a few base-running mistakes, but the hitting was contagious.

Their next time up, LANE O’ DEA, CHRISTIAN ARLINGTON and TOMMY LEE each doubled giving Horizon six in two innings which was more than enough run support for ANTHONY PIZZO to win in his first start of the season.

Once we got down I just took a deep breath and relaxed,” the sophomore righty explained. “I knew my catcher was calling a good game and the offense would eventually come around because I see what they can do in practice every day.”

Now with a win over Castle Park on Wednesday, the Panthers have a chance move into Thursday morning’s semi-final round at Mater Dei Catholic.

Francis Parker 4, Paramount 3 – For the second time in as many days the Lancers (9-5) blew a late-inning lead multiple times…but for the second straight day freshman NICK ALLEN saved the day with a walk-off RBI.

Although it wasn’t as dramatic as his two-run double in extra innings the night before, the bottom line was it got the job as he was plunked with a fastball in the bottom of the seventh to give Parker the Division 6A victory.

In fact, it turned out to be their first tally of the day after scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the first inning.

Allen led things off with a walk. JONAH DAVIS followed with a double. HAYDEN HASTINGS also walked leading to a JOHNATHAN VIZCAINO RBI single and EPHRAIM STEIGERWALD finished things off with a two-run single.

JAKE WIEGAND didn’t earn the victory, but was sharp allowing only two runs in six innings of work. While AUSTIN ROGERS got the win on the mound by tossing the last frame of work.

Just like Horizon, the Lancers now will determine their own fate on Wednesday as they face a Scripps Ranch team that currently holds four wins over teams in the San Diego C.I.F. Top 10 poll. The formula is simple…win and you’re in.

El Capitan 3, Santa Fe Chistian 1 – El Capitan high right-hander Chance Colson isn’t your typical sophomore making his first career start. Even though he admitted a few butterflies before the game, he put one of the hottest teams in the county behind the magic 8-ball, handcuffing Santa Fe Christian all afternoon by making their bats disappear with a simple slight of hand.

I definitely woke up a little nervous today with it being my first start,” he admitted. “But…I knew I was ready.”

The Eagles (11-5) entered Tuesday’s Division 6A Lions Tournament game having won 10 games of their last 11 contests, but lady luck wasn’t on their side as the Vaqueros (6-8) fought their way to a 3-1 victory.

For Chance to come out and fill up the strike zone the way he did to give us a shot at winning was just outstanding,” said Vaqueros’ second-year head coach Jordan Abruzzo.

Stacking the odds even further upon the young El Capitan squad, was that they were facing off against Santa Fe’s ace CHASE BUSHOR, who was coming off of a no-hitter thrown at Petco Park in his last start. He also helped his own cause with a RBI double in the first.

El Capitan got on board in the fifth after a couple of walks set the scene for sophomore Johnathan Summers to give them the lead as he ripped a single scoring their first run of the game tying things up. However, in the process the center fielder also threw the ball into the dugout allowing the game-winning run to score.

We hit the ball well,” SFC coach DON MITCHELL said after. “We just didn’t have any of the luck we’ve been getting lately and that’s just baseball. We uncharacteristically made the mistakes we don’t normally make and today it cost us.”

La Jolla Country Day 8, San Dieguito Academy 7 (9 inn.) – Add the Torreys (7-6) to the list of another team with it’s destiny in its own hands on Wednesday. Neither them or the Mustangs (4-11) looked like they wanted to win this one, as the two teams combined for 20 hits, 10 errors and 8 unearned runs.

In the long run however, LJCD just picked them apart offensively with 5 sacrifice bunts and six stolen bases to manufacture enough runs to keep them undefeated in Division 6A.

DYLAN ROBERTSON continued his hot streak at the dish going 3-for-4. J.J. ARNOLD added two hits and scored twice and JULIAN CARVANTES only had one hit, but he was a main cog in their extra inning victory.

In the second he layed down a sacrifice bunt followed by two walks, a single and another sac bunt in the ninth to help score the winning run after two San Dieguito errors started a mini-rally.

BRENNAN RUBIN threw the first four inning for the Torreys and didn’t allow an earned run. MATT YANDEL earned the victory however with 4 and one-third innings in relief.

April 14 Lions Tournament Results

April 14, 2014 by smitty in Baseball, Recaps with 0 Comments

By Andrew Smith

San Diego (4/14/2014) – To open up the beginning of the 2014 Lion’s Tournament, the final game lasted almost late enough to catch a glimpse of Monday’s eclipse of the moon and was by far the most entertaining.

Slated as the day’s night cap with a 6 pm start, Francis Parker did just about everything they could to give San Pasqual the win, but freshman NICK ALLEN provided late-inning heroics to give the Lancers an 8-7 victory with a two-run walk off double in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Head coach DAVID GLASSEY‘s squad entered the seventh inning with a two run lead, but gave up three runs to trail in their final at-bat wasting another great start for GRANT SHIVES, who gave up 1 earned run in six innings of work.

Luckily, they scraped together a marker to send it to extra innings and then they did it again in the top of the ninth by giving up another pair of runs.

With the bottom of our lineup coming up in that final frame I wasn’t sure what to expect,” admitted Glassey. “This year’s team has no quit in them. They continue to shock and surprise me every game.”

With the first two batters reaching base the number eight batter was plunked. The final man in their lineup drew a bases-loaded walk to make it a one run game and then Allen came through with the last minute magic with a double to the gap.

He’s just a special player,” Glassey said of his freshman shortstop. “By time he’s a senior nothing he does will ever surprise me.”

Parker (9-5) now faces a short turnaround as they take on Paramount Tuesday at noon on their home field.

La Jolla Country Day 7, Kennedy 0 – Pitching was the name of the game for the Torreys (6-6) on Monday afternoon. NICK LAVIN and J.J. ARNOLD combined to blank the Cougars with Lavin earning his first victory of the season.

Offensively, the bottom of the lineup, along with the first two hitters did the most damage, going 5-for-9 and scored five runs.

LJCD got a pair of runs in the first inning without collecting a hit and then scored three more in the second after the aforementioned 8-2 hitters JULIAN CARAVANTES, ZACH and KEATON WEISZ, along with DYLAN ROBERTSON put together four straight singles and the Torreys never looked back.

Santa Fe Christian 2, Birmingham (CA) 1 – The Eagles (11-4) made it a 3-team sweep for the Coastal League in the 6A Division, as they rode the left arm of DILLON PAULSON. The junior southpaw struck out 10 and scattered only three hits on the day for the complete game victory.

They weren’t the strongest team we’ll face this season,” skipper DON MITCHELL said after. “But weren’t you facing Dillon it really doesn’t matter because of the way his pitches dart and dip so much.”

He rolled his record to 4-1 with his Coastal League-leading third complete game, and lowered his ERA to 1.41 this year in the process.

Horizon 12, Cleveland 0 (6 inn.) – It wasn’t much of a game for the Panthers (8-6) as they had little trouble in their AAA Division opener with the Cavaliers at Steele Canyon high. CARTER WATSON led the way with hits in all three of his AB’s and he and RONALD STOKES each scored three times.

CHRISTIAN ARLINGTON, OSCAR CORDOVA and LANE O’ DEA each had two hits and maybe the best news for Horizon was with the game out of hand early they kept O’ Dea’s innings on the mound to a minimal, which will allow hit more work later in the week.

He struck out four and allowed five hits and ANTHONY PIZZO helped finish off Cleveland in shutout fashion.

Malibu 4, Bishop’s 2 – Usually sharks aren’t found in shallow waters, but the Knights (9-5) made the Malibu Sharks feel right at home in Mission Bay for their Division AA contest.

After two innings of play Bishop’s trailed 4-0 after allowing only a single hit. Erratic pitching was to blame, as four free passes were handed out along with four hit batsmen and the Knights never could recover even though they blanked the Sharks the rest of the way.

Lincoln 9, Rock Academy 4 – no additional info was admitted about this Division A contest…
