Sunday, April 2, 2017 – In a match-up against a “AA,” the La Salle Academy Cardinals dropped both games of their Varsity/JV double header 3-8 and 0-6, respectively to Moore Catholic at the Richmond County Youth Complex on Staten Island.
It was the first game in over two weeks for all four teams due to the bad weather, but the LSA Varsity showed no signs of rust. They jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first, but that was all they could muster as Moore scored eight unanswered for the win. Julien Nieves pitched well but took the loss giving up five runs in four innings with 5Ks and 4 walks.
The Junior Varsity Cardinals never really got on track and were no-hit by a combination of Moore Catholic pitchers. Carlos Flores took the loss scattering four hits over four innings and giving up three earned runs. The young Cardinals struggled to produce hits and runs which ultimately led to the loss.
La Salle Varsity and JV baseball teams have the week off and begin CHSAA “A” league play the week of April 10th.
