Tuesday, April 24, 2018 – La Salle Academy varsity baseball dropped their first division game, 4-3, to St. Edmund Prep at Bergen Beach Field in Brooklyn. The road loss moves the Cardinals’ record to 6-5 overall and 5-1 in the CHSAA ‘A’ division.
All the action came in the first two innings as Prep opened the scoring with three runs in the bottom of the first. La Salle, rallied back in the top of the second with three runs of their own to tie the game, however St. Edmund pushed across one more with a two-out base hit, which turned out to be the difference.
It was nip and tuck the rest of the way as both teams had chances to put up more runs but stellar relief work by La Salle’s Franklin Olivares and St. Edmund kept both teams off the board the rest of the way.
Carlos Flores took the loss for La Salle and Nicholas Brito had two hits for the Cardinals.
