Wednesday, April 12, 2017 – On a day right for baseball the La Salle Academy JV Cardinals (1-3 Overall; 1-0 League) did all the wrong things including making 12 errors in a lopsided 5-15 lost to non-league Packer Collegiate at American Legion Fields in Brooklyn, NY.
A day after their hard-fought win against league rival Nazareth, the Cardinals were low energy despite going up 2-0 after one inning. But that turned out to be an omen because even then a base running miscue cost La Salle a potential big inning. Overall, missed fly balls, botched grounds and poor communication, led to the 12 errors also ruined solid pitching performances from Cristobal Rivera and Tristen Frederick.
Roberto Liz continued his hot start to the season going 2 for 3, 3 RBIs but it wasn’t enough as the offense managed just one hit the rest of the way.
The JV Cardinals are back in action next Tuesday, April 18 for a league game at Monsignor Scanlan (915 Hutchinson River Parkway, Bronx) at 4:30pm.
