CAB splits one-run games

Logan Quick induced a game-ending groundout — stranding the tying and go-ahead runners on base — as the California Academy of Baseball held off visiting Del Oro 3-2 Thursday, part of a doubleheader split at El Dorado High School.

The Loomis-area team captured the second game 9-8 by scoring six runs in the last two innings to erase an 8-3 deficit.

Quick was on his way to closing another CAB win when Del Oro, down to its last two strikes, pulled within a run after a two-run home run. Two more runners reached before Quick nailed down the save.

Krischton Kern started the opener for CAB and pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning. Kern went five and a third innings, surrendered four hits. struck out three and walked no one.

The first two CAB runs came with two out. In the bottom of the second, Zach Culp’s two-out single plated Sawyer Schardt and Bonniksen singled in Culp for a 2-0 advantage.

It stayed that way until the fifth when Matt Smith singled, Ryan Rodriguez singled, Aaron Varney singled and Rodriguez scored on Louis Merlo’s RBI base hit.

Defensively, Smith’s diving catch in the seventh denied Del Oro a base runner preceding the homer.

Smith and Michael Weston (3 RBIs) each had three hits in the second game while Bonniksen had two. Zach Terry gave up three runs in the first inning but shut the door until the sixth when Del Oro tied the game with five runs.

“We fell apart a little bit … it was sloppy defense,” CAB coach Rusty McDonald said.

Del Oro put together four singles to score the winning run in the seventh.
