Cate Baseball Tops Oxnard to Remain in Playoff Hunt

Cate baseball kept its playoff hopes alive with a 6-4 win on the road over Santa Clara in Oxnard.

Senior Patrick Armstrong '18 led the way for the Rams, going 2-2 with an RBI. Freshman William Deardorff was 1-2 with an RBI while freshman Daniel Panadero also had a hit for the Rams, going 1-4.

Junior Jack Deardorff '19 reached base and later came around to steal home on a heads-up play.

The big hit of the day came off the bat of freshman Zach Hanson '21. Deuces were wild in the top of the 6th inning; the game was tied at two and the Rams had two men on with two outs. That's when Hanson ripped a double into left center field to put the Rams up for good. 

Jack Deardorff '19 picked up the win for Cate, going five innings while yielding just two runs on four hits. The right-hander strike out three Saints on the afternoon. Junior Ethan Cassulo was called upon to close the game for the Rams and threw two innings of relief to seal the deal. 

"I can't say enough about the hit that Zach Hanson had," said Cate coach Dave Soto. "For a young man who hasn't seen much action this season to come up big like that is huge."

Cate (7-6, 3-5) will face rival Thacher on the road on Monday.

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!
