Despite struggling to find the zone on the mound, the SCA JV baseball team defeated Horizon Honors H.S. by a score of 18-7 on Wednesday afternoon in the season and home opener. The Eagles pitching staff walked 8 batters but minimized the damage with some timely strikeouts and defensive play. Offensively, the bats came alive as the boys from Scottsdale banged out 16 hits. Caleb Robertson stood out going 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs, Tucker Willingham was 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs and Joshua Hawks finished 1 for 2 with 2 RBIs. Horizon Honors made a late surge, scoring 6 runs in the 5th inning, but SCA was able to shut down the rally and finish off the game with an 11 run deficit.
After a one week layoff to serve during Missions Week, Scottsdale Christian will return to the field on March 8th when they will travel to Fountain Hill High School.
