Date: April 9
Opponent: Valley Christian
Final scores: 1-11 and 4-18 in doubleheader (Cavs’ loss)
Inside info (per junior Nate Jakobs): “I hit a home run on top of buildings beyond centerfield, which felt good. Jack had a nice 2-RBI double as well. Avi got his first hit, too.
“We played fine, just a few defensive errors and a lot of walks. There were many questionable calls from the umpire that hurt us, and if some had been in our favor, the game may not have gotten out of hand.
“Valley (Christian) is very good; they have some guys who can really swing it, and they play solid defense.”
Inside info (per freshman Avinash Krishnan): “One of our team’s greatest difficulties (was) the inability to be consistent. For example, in the second game we were able to score four points and actually take the lead. However, we were unable to score after that, and our fielding faltered.
“I was able to catch a fly ball that was completely unexpected in foul territory and (overall) got five outs. I was also able to complete a double play after an amazing catch by (freshman) Hayden Boersma.
“Hayden got some very hard-to-catch hits in the game and impressed everyone, including the opposing team.”
Next game: Friday, April 13, at 3 p.m. against Western Sierra Collegiate Academy at McAuliffe Memorial Park.
