Warriors get better of Eagles
By Giovanni Albanese Jr.
Fremont Christian and California School for the Deaf baseball and softball teams dueled on the CSD campus Tuesday, April 12. It was quite a day for the Warriors softball club, winning a road Bay Counties League match.
It was a close game until the sixth. CSD actually held a 3-1 lead going into the fourth. But a single Lady Warriors run in the fourth cut the lead to 3-2; another two runs in the fifth gave them a 4-3 lead; but it was the sixth- and seventh-inning outbursts that gave Fremont Christian the convincing win.
In the sixth, the Lady Warriors blew the game open, plating six runs. For good measure, they didn't take the foot off the gas, scoring another five runs in the seventh. While Fremont Christian was blowing the game out to a 15-3 final, the pitching buckled down, not allowing a run in the final four frames. (Baseball's score was unavailable at press.)
Two days later, the CSD softball team was back on their home field, hosting Athenian High School. CSD got its offense back in order, putting up a 10-spot. However, with a 10-7 lead going into the final inning, the pitching let them down. Athenian erupted for eight runs in the seventh, taking control of the game for a 15-10 win. Meanwhile, Fremont Christian was on the opposite end of a blowout, losing to Arroyo, 22-0. However, Fremont Christian softball finished its week with a 15-0 triumph at home over ICA of San Francisco.
CSD athletics -- baseball, softball and track and field -- went to Indiana School for the Deaf over the weekend. Baseball and softball both took part in their respective sports' Hoy Tournament -- a contest between all the United States' schools for the deaf. Track participated in the Berg Seeger Classic. No scores, however, were available at press.
In Central Coast Section action, Milpitas High School's baseball club took on Pioneer on Saturday, April 16, and lost 13-4 on the road.
