Down by 4 in the fourth, boys rally to defeat Waldorf, 8-6

The boys’ baseball team defeated Sacramento Waldorf School, 8-6, on March 6.

Although at one point the Cavs were down by four, they rallied in the fifth and sixth innings to take the game.

Senior Erik Morfin-Ruiz, senior Ethan Ham and freshman Miles Edwards all pitched. Edwards, who took over in the fifth inning, was the winning pitcher.

Senior Keegan Crain started the game at catcher and was replaced by sophomore Emil Erickson in the sixth.

At the end of the first inning, the Cavs were down 1-3.

In the third inning they were down 1-4.

And at the end of the fourth inning, the score was 2-6.

Then in the fifth inning, the Cavs scored two runs, and the rally began.

“We battled hard and played smarter (than Waldorf),” Edwards said.

“We rallied late to have a good comeback and we started throwing strikes,” senior George Cvetich said.

Edwards and Erickson were the top hitters for SCDS. Edwards drove in two runs. Erickson had a .666 average, with two hits in three at bats.

Country Day was just an overall better team and made few errors, according to sophomore Zane Jakobs.

“We threw harder and more accurately, fielded better, hit harder and hit more,” he said.

The game was suspended due to darkness.

The next game will be against Victory Christian at McAuliffe Field on Tuesday, March 10, at 4 p.m.
