A five run first and six innings on the mound by Daniel Butler earned Westmont Baseball (5-1) an 8-3 victory at California Lutheran (0-2) on Saturday. Butler allowed three runs (one earned) and gave up four hits.
Lead-off man Michael Frigon was hit by a pitch to start the game and reached second when Alika McGuire singles to right. After Michael Stefanic walked to load the bases, Derek Rodigo singled on a ground ball through the left side to bring home Frigon and leave the sacks full of Warriors. Michael Pollex then did the same thing on the right side of the infield, scoring McGuire.
Jarrett Costa’s ground ball to third results in a Stefanic to score and an error on the play by the second baseman brought home Rodigo as well. Pollex was retired at first and Costa took second on the error. One out later, Graylin Derke doubled to right center to drive in Costa.
