Baseball: Destrehan, Rummel pitch shutouts to remain unbeaten
Area Prep Baseball Report for Saturday, Feb. 26
When you do not allow the opponent to score, you are going to win every time out.
Destrehan and Rummel have mastered this principal early in the season.
The Wildcats rolled over Warren Easton 10-0 in the St. Charles Catholic Tournament.
Returning from a serious injury which required surgery for an ACL tear, Destrehan left-handed pitcher Christian Ricks pitched five shutout innings, allowing just one hit. Ricks walked no one and striking out six Eagles.
John Carmichael had two twos and two RBI while Shane Lee had two hits and two RBI.
The Wildcats (2-0) return to action against host St. Charles Catholic today at 1 p.m.
Archbishop Rummel has been very impressive early this season.
The Raiders blanked Lakeshore 11-0 in the WGNO Tournament at Mike Miley Stadium.
Rummel jumped on the Titans early, scoring three runs in the first and two more in the second to take a 5-0 lead. Rummel added four runs in the fifth and two in the seventh to complete the scoring.
Gancarlo Arencibia was outstanding, pitching a complete game five-hitter. Arencibia walked just one and struck out seven, using just 88 pitches, 62 of which were strikes. Arencibia helped himself with two hits, including a double and drove in a run.
The Raiders banged out 14 hits, led by Rhett Centanni, who homered, doubled and drove in five runs. Shane Hirstius had three hits and an RBI while Anthony Mouney added two hits, including a double, and two RBI. Josh Sterling had two hits and an RBI and Evan Burg added two hits.
Rummel (3-0) has now pitched a pair of shutouts and will face Hahnville today at 4 p.m. at Noel Suarez Stadium in Chalmette.
