Dean Smith Sparks Cate to 12-4 Win Over Villanova

Dean Smith's solo home run ignited Cate's offense in a 12-4 win over Villanova in a Frontier League baseball game on Friday.

The Rams scored five runs in the first inning to erase a 2-0 deficit.

"I'm so proud of the way we were able to respond after falling behind early," coach Dave Soto said. "I'm seeing a lot of improvement each day; it is coming at the right time as we head into the most important part of our season."

The Rams are 2-0 in league play.

Smith led the offense with three hits and four RBIs. Bryce Huerta drove in two runs

Jake Dexter-Meldrum picked up the win for Cate, tossing six strong innings. The senior right-hander stuck out five and surrendered six hits. James Chang tossed a scoreless final frame.

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!
