In the battle of intra-county independent summer baseball teams, the host California Academy Baseball team broke open a close game in the bottom of the fourth inning to post a 15-3 first-game win over IBAC in a doubleheader at El Dorado High Tuesday.

CAB also grabbed the second game 5-1 to register the sweep.

Leading 7-3, CAB sent 12 batters to the plate resulting in eight runs thanks to five hits, two walks, two IBAC errors and a fielder’s choice. Nick Bonniksen led off the frame with a walk before Michael Weston reached on a fielder’s choice to erase Bonniksen. Weston moved to second on Louis Merlo’s single to centerfield. Weston and Merlo scored the first two runs in the fourth when Aaron Farney hit a two-run single to center to make it 9-3.

CAB leadoff hitter Zach Culp and Ryan Rodriguez both reached base on two IBAC errors that scored Farney to make it 10-3. After Matt Smith and Adam Washabaugh smacked back-to-back singles, it was 11-3. With two outs, Bonniksen made a second trip to the plate and walked. He, Washabaugh and Rodriguez scored when Weston drove a fastball deep into centerfield for a three-run double to make it 15-3.

“We were stringing together a lot of hits,” said CAB head coach Rusty McDonald, whose team had 12 hits in the first game. “We were hitting the ball real well.”

IBAC responded in the top of the fifth inning, Dylan Farinacci walked and moved to second on Michael Green’s single to left field. Joey Silvestri singled to right-center field to load the bases with one out. But a fly ball to the outfield and a strikeout ended the game because of the 10-run mercy rule.

In the top of the first inning, IBAC scored its first run when Silvestri walked and scored on an error.

In the top of the third inning, IBAC scored its last two runs when Silvestri doubled, moved to third on a passed ball and after Brett Pankow walked, he and Silvestri scored on Harrison Gallant’s single down the third base line for a 3-0 advantage.

In the bottom of the second inning, CAB rallied to take a 4-3 lead. CAB’s four hits in the inning included singles from Weston (3-for-4, 2B, 3 runs), Farney (2-for-2, 3 runs), Culp (2-for-3, 2B) and Smith’s double.

CAB scored three more runs in the bottom of the third inning off two hits, walk and hit batter. Weston and Culp singled and doubled respectively, Sawyer Schardt walked and Farney was hit by a pitch.

Krischton Kern went the distance on the mound for CAB and gave up five hits, walked six and struck out three IBAC batters.

CAB 5, IBAC 1

In the night-cap, the game was tied at 1-all until the bottom of the sixth inning with two outs.

Merlo walked and moved to second on Kevin Morrison’s single. Nathaniel Erskine singled to drive in Merlo. After Rodriguez walked, he, Erskine and Morrison scored on Weston’s double.

Bonniksen went the distance on the hill for CAB, striking out seven IBAC batters, allowing three hits and walking one.
