Kennedy's St. Pierre Ends Skid

April 17, 2001|From Staff Reports

Tim St. Pierre is usually effective, but not overpowering. He had extra zip Monday, helping Kennedy High snap a four-game losing streak with a 8-3 victory over Reseda in a Valley Mission League baseball game at Kennedy.

St. Pierre (5-2), a senior right-hander, allowed three hits and struck out 11 in six innings. He entered the contest with only 19 strikeouts in 26 innings.

Kennedy (13-9, 5-2 in league play) scored five runs in the first inning. St. Pierre had a two-run home run for the Cougars, who dropped four games at the Las Vegas Bishop Gorman tournament last week.

Phil Avlas added a solo home run for Kennedy.
