With Mother Nature having created, and still creating, havoc as it relates to Big Five Conference baseball scheduling, the Del Norte Warrior baseball team played host to the Eureka Loggers Friday in a doubleheader that was originally for April 6, only to have it postponed not once but twice due to inclement weather and unplayable field conditions.
The Warriors got on the board first in the opening game, scoring an unearned run in the bottom half of the second inning, before the Loggers proceeded to score 14 unanswered runs, seven apiece in the fourth and fifth innings, en route to a 14-2 victory. The game was halted after five innings due to the 10-run rule.
Justin Goudelock delivered the only run batted in of the contest for the Warriors with a sacrifice fly in the home half of the second, as the Warriors managed just two hits in the five innings played.
Just as the home team had done in the opener, the Warriors struck first in the nightcap, scoring a run in the home half of the first. Unlike the opener though, the Warriors tacked on two more runs, and took a 3-0 lead into the top half of the sixth. Warrior starting pitcher Sebastian Puente kept what had been a potent Loggers attack in the opening game, at bay in the nightcap, allowing just one hit in his five innings of work before giving way to the bullpen.
That is where the momentum came to a screeching halt for the home team as, despite carrying a 3-0 into the sixth with just six outs separating the Warriors from what would have been their first conference victory of the season, the Loggers struck for four runs on four hits in the top half of the sixth and then stifled a would-be Warrior rally in the home half of the seventh, ultimately handing the Warriors an excruciating 4-3 loss.
The Warrior softball is scheduled to conclude its own three-game season series with the Loggers Monday afternoon when the two teams meet in a doubleheader at Del Norte High School. Weather permitting, the first pitch of the opening game is set for 2 p.m.
