So Cal Detonates Bombers


Garrett Osterode -- SID

La Mirada, Calif. – The Catch offense got back to their old ways Saturday night against the visiting So Cal Bombers. After scoring a season low four runs last Thursday night against the Halos, the Catch bats came out hot against the Bombers taking Saturday night’s game by the final score of 14-3.

The Catch, like they have all season long, did their damage early. This time by way of four two out runs in the first inning and an explosion for seven runs in the second, giving the Catch a demanding lead they would not look back on. All but one starting position player for the Catch recorded a hit and scored a run, it was truly a team effort and huge contributions were made by every player.

One players contribution that stood above the rest was from right-fielder Anthony Seminaris (Arkansas Fort-Smith). Anthony finished the game two for three with five RBIs and two base on balls. Seminaris had great at bats all night long, but his shining moment was in the first inning when he cleared the bases with a huge two out triple to right field. This is the second “Player of the Game” honors that Seminaris has earned in as many games.

Jonathon Ducoff (Houston Baptist) and Steven Garrett (Azusa Pacific) both had big days at the plate each recording multiple hits and multiple runs scored. Another solid effort came from Nate Pecota (William Jewell) who not only did it with his bat, but with his legs as well, adding two stolen bases.

On the other side of the ball, the Catch were excellent. Tallon Thomason (Fresno City) set the tone on the mound delivering four solid innings and allowing three runs, while Hunter McIntosh (Grandview), Tucker Thomason (Fresno City), and Zac Whittaker all contributed scoreless outings in their efforts. The Catch pitching staff won the free bases battle, walking only one Bomber batter Saturday night and it came late in the ninth inning.

Looking ahead:

The Catch travel to Concordia University to take on the So Cal Surf at 4:30pm for the second time this season. So Cal will look to ride their hot bats through tomorrow and into league play on Tuesday.
