Overcoming an early two-run deficit, the bats came alive for California Academy of Baseball team, which was paced by pitcher Krischton Kern to a 10-3 victory over Christian Brothers at El Dorado High on Tuesday.

The visiting Falcons took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning, scoring on a ball that got away from the CAB third baseman and plating another run on a bases-loaded walk. But Kern settled down and got out of the inning without allowing any more damage, as he pitched four quality innings.

CAB came right back to tie it in the bottom of the frame. Adam Washabaugh doubled that scored Ryan Rodriguez. Then Washabaugh scored on a fielder’s choice grounder.

In the top of the second inning, Kern struck out two of three batters. CAB catcher Sawyer Schardt caught a Falcon runner attempting to steal.

Aaron Farney singled up the gut to start the bottom of the inning for CAB, but the next three batters were retired to strand him at first.

Neither team could get anything going in the third frame, and they headed to the fourth. After allowing a run on an infield single, Kern induced an inning-ending double play from Christian Brothers, bringing up CAB. Rodriguez doubled to score Zach Culp. Rodriguez came home on Washabaugh’s double to left. Michael Weston singled up the box to score Washabaugh, as CAB held a 5-3 lead.

Zach Terry pitched the fifth inning for CAB that was quick and led to the home team batting again. CAB extended its lead on a Culp single. Two more runs were plated on Rodriguez’s single to left, as CAB led 8-3.

Terry worked another shutout inning in the top of the sixth. Then CAB padded its lead, scoring Weston on Kevin Morrison’s double. Louis Merlo came home on a sacrifice fly from Logan Quick. Terry closed out the game, getting a grounder back to the pitcher for a double play that ended it.

CAB 9, Christian Brothers 4

In the second game of the twin bill,CAB scored six of its runs in the bottom of the first inning off three hits, two walks and a hit batter. Kevin Morrison’s three-run double in the frame was the key.

“We took charge in the first inning and coasted the rest of the way.” CAB head  coach Rusty McDonald said. “In the second game you jump out to an early lead, it’s hard to keep up the intensity, but we played real well.”

After scoring a run in the second inning, CAB finished off its scoring spree in the sixth with two runs off two hits. Owen Mackendrick doubled in the inning.

Christian Brothers lead 2-0 after the top of the first inning thanks to a single and double. The visitors didn’t score again until the top of the sixth on a single, double and two walks. Christian Brothers had nine hits in the game.

CAB finished with nine hits. Culp finished had three hits, Mackendrick and Vincent Ross had two hits each.

Logan Quick pitched the first six innings for CAB. Merlo tossed the final frame.
