Sophomore Ryan Baird threw a one-hitter and captain Greg Cusack knocked in seven runs in Saturday’s 19-1 victory for Cate’s baseball team over Ojai Valley School.
The game lasted only five innings because of the 10-run rule.
Cusack was 4-for-5 with 6 RBI and 3 runs scored. Zach Ell went 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI. Michael Warren added three hits and three runs scored while Carlos Fairbanks had a 2-for-3 day.
Baird earned his first win on the mound. He struck out seven batters.
“Our young guys are getting better,” said Rams head coach Ben Soto.
Cate is 8-2, 2-1 on the season.
