San Diego High School Baseball : Winless Clairemont Gets Lead in the 10th, Loses It to Darkness

March 20, 1987

After losing its first five games this season, Clairemont High School seemed on the verge of getting a victory Thursday in its GMC tournament game at University City when it took a 6-5 lead in the 10th.

But Clairemont couldn't make it past the 10th as umpires called the game because of darkness, nullifying the run the Chiefs had scored in the uncompleted inning.


Serra 10, Christian 7--Alex Williams homered and Ronnie Lardizabal drove in three runs with a single and a double to lead visiting Serra (3-3) to the victory. Jon Okken hit a two-run home run in the first inning and a three-run homer in the fourth for Christian (3-3).

La Jolla 10, Morse 1--La Jolla (4-1-1) had 16 hits. La Jolla was led by Pat Tribolet (2 for 3 with a double and 2 RBIs), Brent Woodall (2 for 4 with 2 RBIs) and Jeff Schultz (two doubles and an RBI). Woodall pitched a four-hitter for the victory.


El Capitan 16, Poway 3--El Capitan (4-1) scored five runs in the first and five more in the next two innings for the victory over visiting Poway (2-3). Seven of El Capitan's starting players had two hits each, led by Matt Smith, who drove in three runs with a single and a double, and third baseman Jason Escoto, who had a solo home run and an RBI single.

Mission Bay 13, Granite Hills 9--Scott Vonderlieth went 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs to lead Mission Bay (3-2) over Granite Hills (3-2). Granite Hills was led by Jeremy Kay, who had three hits, including a three-run home run.

USDHS 13, Hilltop 5--Jeff Desjardins drove in the tying and winning runs with a single in the seventh for visiting University of San Diego High School (5-0). The Dons added seven more runs. Tom Stilinovich (3-0) was the winning pitcher.

Briefly: Escondido 3, Chula Vista 2.
