Bishop Diego’s Ryan Rheinschild gave up just three hits over six innings as Cardinal bats delivered a 13-1 win over Cate Thursday.
Isaac Veal, Jack Stowe, Gabe Martinez each had two RBI for Bishop Diego. Evon Weeks had two hits. Sam Kitt, Ryan Rheinschild, Paul Zoltoski, Kaden Guron each got one hit.
Rheinschild gave up no earned runs. Jacob Salas pitched the seventh inning, giving up a hit and a walk but now runs, striking out one.
“Ryan gave us a great start today on the hill,” Cardinals coach Pete Stathopoloushe said, “pitched to contact and our defense made the plays behind him. Our hits were spread out today all over the lineup, and that was great to see. The Cate baseball program is a class act, and they have a great coaching staff.”
Hueneme 7, Carpinteria 6 (eight innings)
Hueneme edged Carpinteria 7-6 in eight innings in a Citrus Coast League game Thursday on a wind-swept day in Oxnard, as the teams weathered seven lead changes on the way to conclusion.
Isaac Flores paced the Warrior attack with two hits, two RBI and a run scored. Hunter Garcia also had two hits, along with two walks and two runs scored, and Talon Trumble added a hit, walk, and RBI.
Sophomore starter Joaquin Ramirez pitched 6-1/3 innings and left the game in the seventh tied 6-6. The Warrior defense committed just one error on the wind-swept day in Oxnard.
With little effect on CCL standings, the game was “played for pride,” Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said.
“Again, it was a good high school baseball game between two teams that were playing their best,” Cooney said. “Hueneme had already secured second place in the CCL and we knew the game meant little in the standings but the competition was exciting.”
Carpinteria is now 4-10-1 in CCL play, and 6-12-1 overall. Hueneme is 13-9 and 9-6.
The Warriors host Villanova at 11 a.m. Saturday.
“We can’t wait to celebrate our seniors in what will be our final game of 2022 on Saturday,” Cooney said. “Gibby Castillo, Zach Mata and Hunter Garcia deserve a tip-of-the-cap for their tremendous efforts this year and in years previous. Each of them can be proud of a great body of work.”
