Baseball Report: Chalmette stays hot with win over East Jefferson
Area Prep Baseball Report for Friday, April 12
One of the hottest teams in the metropolitan area resides in St. Bernard Parish.
After dropping five straight games, the Chalmette Owls have now ripped off nine consecutive victories.
Chalmette handled East Jefferson 10-0 at Noel Suarez Stadium in a game shortened to four and a half innings by the mercy rule to remain unbeaten and in first place in District 8-5A.
The Owls scored twice in the bottom of the second inning and put the game away with eight runs in the bottom of the third.
Ronald Prestenbach went four innings to pick up the win, allowing just one hit. He walked four and struck out four. Lane Dibartolo pitched a shutout inning as well with a strikeout.
Hunter Wheaton had three hits, including a double and drove in three runs for Chalmette. Michael Ludwig had a pair of hits and three RBI. Nick Powell and Brice Wilson each had an RBI for the Owls.
Chalmette (12-12, 8-0) returns to action in district play Tuesday at West Jefferson at 4 p.m. while East Jefferson (9-12, 5-3) returns to action Saturday to take on Warren Easton in a non-district contest.
