EL CAJON, Calif. – The Hawks baseball team outhit Bethesda 12-10 on Tuesday but the Flames won the non-conference game 9-4 against SDC.
With the loss, the Hawks fall to 8-23 on the season, while the Flames improve to 14-20.
Bethesda opened the game with a 2 RBI double for the 2-0 lead after the first inning. Luke Bando (SR/Santee, CA) hit a sac fly to bring home Stephan Haviar to cut the deficit in half.
The Flames, though, broke the game open with four runs in the top of the third, leading SDC 6-1. Bethesda added a run in the fourth before Justin DiStefano hit a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth.
In the fifth, Joseph Tellez (SR/Bronx, NY) did his best DiStefano impersonation and hit a solo homer of his own, trimming the deficit to 7-3. Tellez contributed again in the bottom of the seventh with a single to score Austin Yeoman (SO/Norwalk, CA). But that was the last SDC would score as the Flames added two in the bottom of the eighth.
Tellez led the team with three hits. Brock Asher (SR/Aiea, Hawaii) was next with two.
Tyler Wilson (SR/Gilbert, AZ) was dealt the loss as he threw three innings allowing six hits, six runs, and striking out four. Taylor Logan, Mark Young (JR/El Cajon, CA), and Jameson Nieto (JR/Monterey, CA) made relief appearances for the Hawks.
SDC will get back to GSAC play as they host Westmont for a 3-game series starting on Friday. Friday's game is at noon and will be played at Point Loma University. Saturday's double-header is at Grossmont College, also with a noon start time.
