Bishop Diego Offense Erupts in CIF Baseball Playoff Opener, 13-2

Bishop Diego banged out 16 hits and romped to a 13-2 win over Lennox Academy in a first-round CIF-Southern Section Division 7 baseball playoff game on Thursday at Culver Park in Santa Monica.

Will Goodwin pitched a complete game, allowing three hits and striking out 10.

Travis Pierce went 3-for-4, scored two runs and drove in two. Seven Bishop batters had at least two hits. Freshman Daniel Gianinni went 2-4 with three RBI, senior Tyler Green had two hits and two RBI. Goodwin and Gabe Arteaga scored three times each.

“We did a nice job at the plate today with the way we hit," Bishop coach Ralph Molina. "We had some good at bats and did a nice job knocking runs in. 

"Will pitched a great game today. He was in command all day.”

The Cardinals advance to the second round and will play Hillcrest Christian at Bishop Diego on Tuesday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
