Prep Baseball : El Dorado Outslugs Troy Twice

April 07, 1985

El Dorado High School used six home runs--including a grand slam by Steve Whooley in the seventh inning of the second game--to sweep a nonleague doubleheader against Troy, 6-5 and 7-6, Saturday at Troy.

Todd Holt's one-out homer in the top of the ninth gave the Golden Hawks the victory in the first game, in which the teams combined to hit six homers. Jeff DeJesse gave Troy a 5-3 lead with a grand slam in the bottom of the fourth, but El Dorado countered with solo home runs by Jeff Petredes in the fifth and Tim Goff in the sixth, tying the game at 5-5.

El Dorado trailed, 4-2, entering the seventh inning of the second game, but got a grand slam from Steve Whooley and solo homer from Doug Sipple--back to back--to win it. Petredes (4-2) went the distance to get the win.

Tony Godfrey had a three-run homer for Troy in the fifth inning. Shawn Blankenship went 3 for 4 and Sipple and Chris Saito had two hits each for El Dorado (7-4). The teams combined for 38 hits in all in the doubleheader.

In other nonleague action:

Anaheim 6, Sunny Hills 4--The fourth-ranked Lancers (11-3) had their four-game winning streak broken when they committed three errors and gave up four walks in the Sentinels' four-run third inning at Glover Stadium in Anaheim.

Anaheim (2-8), which had lost six straight, only had one hit in the third, an RBI single by third baseman Larry Cabral.

Will Barber got the win and Mike Wilson was the loser.

Pacifica-La Quinta, postponed--Umpires failed to make an appearence, forcing a postponement of the doubleheader at Santa Ana College.
