Bishop Diego had a rough day in the field, committing 10 errors in a non-league baseball doubleheader loss at Santa Ynez on Saturday. The Cardinals were beaten 7-5 and 12-5.
In the opener, Santa Ynez starter Tyler Rasmussen pitched six solid innings, allowing one run.
“The Pirates executed the game very well and we did a poor job of preventing the big innings,” said Bishop coach Nick Katzenstein. “We made too many mistakes defensively and allowed them to have baserunners the entire game. Hats off to them for their execution and near solid defensive performance.”
Isaac Medina, Tyler Dutcher and Isaac Veal all went 2 for 4 for Bishop. Medina and Dutcher each drove in two runs and Veal had a double.
Mason Young went 2-4 and had three RBI and Jackson Cloud went 2-4 with a RBI for Santa Ynez.
The Pirates jumped on Bishop pitching for eight runs after two innings in the nightcap.
“The second game got a little sloppy on both sides, but the Pirates bats put this game out of reach early,” said Katzenstein.
The Pirates had 16 hits in the game.
“We have a lot of adversity to overcome, and hopefully we learned something positive that we can take away from today,”said Katztenstein.
The Cardinals play at Santa Clara on Tuesday for a non-league game.
