Pintos lose close contest to Wildcats

Pintos lose close contest to Wildcats

May 1st, 2012 in News

The California High School baseball teams traveled to Warsaw April 23, where the varsity lost a close contest to the Wildcats, 6-5.

"We just couldn't shut the door on Warsaw," California Coach Dwight Fitzwater said. "We out-played them for six innings, then allowed the big inning in the seventh to relinquish the game."

After two innings, the score was an even 1-1, however, the Pintos scored four in the third inning, to Warsaw's one, to lead 5-2 going into the fourth inning. The Wildcats added one run in the fourth to trail 5-3. After a scoreless fifth and sixth inning, Warsaw drove three runs home in the seventh to take over the lead and ultimately the win, 6-5.
