EL CAJON, Calif. – The SDC Baseball team held an early 3-0 lead after three innings but the Lions scored nine unanswered runs to win in extra innings 9-4 on Senior Day Wednesday.
With the loss, the Hawks fall to 9-30 overall and 8-23 in GSAC play. Vanguard improves to 27-12 on the season and 21-10 in conference.
Justin DiStefano got things going for SDC hitting a 2-run homer in the bottom of the first inning for a 2-0 lead. Brock Asher (SR/Aiea, Hawaii) singled up the middle to score Justin de la Nuez in the bottom of the third for a 3-0 lead after three.
But then the Lions started their comeback.
VU scored single runs in the fourth, fifth, and seventh to force the extra frame. They would then explode for six runs in the top of the tenth inning which included two homers.
De La Nuez doubled down the right field line that scored Brooks Fages (SO/Temecula, CA) but the four runs wasn't enough.
SDC starter Codi Scanlon (SO/Portland, OR) threw five innings allowing just five hits while striking out 10 in the no decision.
De La Nuez led the team with three hits in five attempts. DiStefano knocked in a team-high 2 RBI from his first-inning homerun.
The Hawks will travel to Vanguard on Thursday with the first pitch scheduled for noon.
