Baseball: La Salle rallies in the seventh to stun Bishop Amat, 4-3

lasalleLa Salle ends Bishop Amat’s undefeated run in Del Rey: There’s a reason why coaches drive into their players that they need to play hard for all 21 outs.On Thursday afternoon, the La Salle High School baseball team found out exactly why that’s true after it rallied for four runs with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to stun visiting Bishop Amat, 4-3, at Arcadia County Park.
“Obviously, we have a lot of respect for Bishop Amat, but I’m really proud of our players for not quitting,” La Salle coach Mike Parisi said. “That’s an inning where you’re like ‘what just happened?’ That was huge. That clinches second place for us in league. That was a huge win for us.”
La Salle improved to 14-6 overall and 7-3 in the Del Rey League and ended Amat’s eight-game win streak. The Lancers still maintain a stranglehold on first place in league; 13-11 overall, 7-1.La Salle’s win wasn’t without controversy. With two outs and two on, La Salle’s Ryan Garcia hit a grounder to shortstop. Amat’s Jayson Gonzalez fielded the ball and his throw was a tad offline to first baseman Nick DiFiori, who stretched and fielded it in time for the out. But the umpires ruled DiFiori was pulled off the bag.
