Brooklyn, NY, April 19, 2016 – The La Salle JV Cardinals absorbed a tough 5-7 loss to CHSAA – A Division leaders Nazareth at American Legion Fields.
Nicholas Rivera got the start for the Cards and went four innings of one run ball and left with a 3-1 lead. That’s when things started to unravel for La Salle as Nazareth batted around in the top of the fifth inning off of Matthew Camacho, who came on in relief of Rivera.
After a fly out to start the inning the next sixth Nazareth batters reached base, which included a base clearing 3-run double down the line in right to Naz’ cleanup hitter, Alex. In all six runs crossed the plate for Nazareth before the final out was recorded.
LSA tried to rally with single runs in the sixth and seventh, but in the end just couldn’t get enough done at the plate or in the field as we were undone with five errors. The JV Cardinals actually got of to a quick start in the bottom of the first, via a 2-RBI single from Jimmy Muniz.
The La Salle offense was lead by Jordan Garcia, who went 3 for 3, 2 runs and 4 stolen bases. Nicholas Brito also had two hits and two runs scored.
