Seventh-inning distress for Del Norte baseball

Brookings-Harbor walked off with the Del Norte High baseball team’s season opener on Friday night.

Down 2-1 entering the seventh inning, the Bruins scored two runs — the last on an RBI double, to defeat the Warriors, 3-2, in Brookings on Monday night.

“It was a very good defensive game — that’s where the strength was tonight,” Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson said. “My pitching was phenomenal tonight. The kids played hard.

“Everybody did an awesome job; we just fell short.”

The Warriors drew first blood in the second inning, when Aaron Fitch scored off a fielder’s choice by Chris Bray. Dylan Pease followed with an RBI single, plating Austin Healy and giving Del Norte a 2-0 advantage.

The Warriors used three pitchers in the game: Luke Seats (2 2/3 innings pitched, one strikeout), Jonathan Calderon (3 1/3 innings pitched, two strikeouts) and Steven Maready (the game’s losing pitcher; 2/3 of an inning pitched). The three pitchers allowed a combined two hits in the contest.

However, Del Norte (0-1 overall) managed just two hits of its own — Pease’s RBI single and a single by Maready.

Johnson attributed the lack of offensive production to strong defensive effort by both teams.

“The infield, specifically, was our tight spot,” he said.

The Warriors receive a chance at redemption Wednesday at 4 p.m. when Brookings-Harbor comes to Del Norte High.
