Bishop Diego baseball won its second straight baseball game, beating Carpinteria, 12-5, at John Calderwood Field on Thursday.
After trailing 2-1 at the end of the second inning, the Cardinals scored in each inning the rest of the way to run away with the non-league victory. They put pressure on the Carpinteria defense with aggressive base running, stealing 10 bases.
Sophomore Isaac Veal paced the Bishop attack, going 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored. Senior Ashton Pelley went 2-3, scored three runs and drove in two; Jack Stowe and Nico Sanchez each went 2-4, with Sanchez scoring three times and Stowe hitting a double and driving in a run.
Pelly, Stowe and Sanchez pitched for the Cardinals.
“It was good to get a road victory under our belt,” said Bishop assistant coach Jimmy Brakka. “Today was a team victory. The more we can work together as a team and support each other like today the more fun this season will be. These kids having been working hard and it’s starting to show.”
Erich Goebel homered and singled, and Miles Souza had a triple for Carpinteria.
“The Warriors are working through some youth and early season jitters,” said Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney. “We need to fit some puzzle pieces around our solid leaders. That’s difficult to work through when facing a well-coached and seasoned Bishop team. They have some early-season game experience and played better than we did today.”
Bishop Diego is 2-3 on the season and Carpinteria is 1-1.
