EL CAJON, Calif. – In the home opener for the SDC baseball team, the Hawks saved their highest output in the early season defeating Bethesda 13-6 Tuesday.
The start of the game was so pleasing for the home crowd. The Flames scored two runs off of SDC starter Caleb Rodusky in the top of the first. Rodusky settled down not allowing a run until the sixth inning. He earned the win for the Hawks throwing six innings with the four runs on five hits with three strikeouts.
SDC answered Bethesda's top of the inning performance with an even greater one. Distefano hit a triple to left center scoring two runs to tie the game at 2-2. Sidley then drove home Distefano for the 3-2 lead and Patrick Vizcaino tallied a sac fly to complete the scoring in the first.
The Hawks tallied two runs in the second. An error and a Stephen Haviar RBI double gave SDC the 6-2 lead. SDC would score three more runs in the fourth before Bethesda added two in the sixth.
Distefano and Sidley again worked together in the sixth, each tallying an RBI.
The Flames would add two in the ninth but it was too little too late.
SDC is back on the diamond Friday as they host Arizona Christian. First pitch is slated for 2 p.m.
