A young and talented Crossroads baseball team absorbed its first loss of the season last week but was elevated to the No.1 ranking in CIF Division 6.
With a 3-0 loss to Campbell Hall followed by a 5-3 win over Viewpoint, Crossroads’ record stood at 6-1.
“I was disappointed after the Campbell Hall game, not because we lost but because we didn’t play our game,”said co-coach Pat Armstrong.
Crossroads came back with a two-run rally against Viewpoint to break a 3-3 tie as Jake Berg and Josh Flyer hit triples.
Holden Miller, Crossroads’ primary pitcher thus far as Max Robinson rests a sore arm, worked six-innings and had six strikeouts.
Flyer, who also hasn’t pitched, made his season debut with one shutout inning.
Second baseman KyleYoo, who bats ninth, is Crossroads’ leading hitter at .529. Shortstop Andres Leyva is batting .423 and has scored 11 runs and stolen nine bases without being caught.
Armstrong and Matt Amido are co-coaches and Jeff Wells is the assistant.
“We’re trying to get a little better everyday,”said Armstrong.
