Wednesday, April 19, 2017 – Danny Maria was efficient and quick, needing just 77 pitches to lead the La Salle Cardinals to a 6-1 CHSAA ‘A’ division victory over Cathedral Prep at East River Park. With the win, La Salle improves to 3-3 overall and 3-1 in the division.
The Cardinals jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on a booming first pitch double to left center by Angel Fernandez-Diaz that scored Julian Nieves (1 for 2, R, K, BB) who was on with a walk and running on the pitch. However, the hitting star of today’s game was right fielder, Christian Cueto, who went 2 for 3, 2B, 2 RBI.
Maria was stellar picking up his second win of the season while his ERA dropped to 1.50, his final line for the game 7 IP, 1H, 1R, 0ER, 4K, 0BB.
The Cardinals conclude their home stand on Friday with a CHSAA ‘A’ divisional game as St. John’s Prep pays a visit to East River Park Field #6 at 1pm.
