No. 1 threw up a whole lotta zeroes against No. 2 on Saturday afternoon.
Ben Schoneman and Hunter Boyden combined for 13 outstanding innings as top-ranked La Cueva’s pitching hamstrung No. 2 Clovis’ offense nearly the entire day as the Bears clinched the District 2-6A baseball championship with a doubleheader sweep of the visiting Wildcats.
La Cueva won the opener 2-1, and then rolled 7-0 in the second game.
“That’s one thing that (our pitchers) have always done, and that’s step up,” said Bears senior shortstop Jack Pineda. “And that’s the way this team works. Our hitters have our pitchers’ backs, and our pitchers have our hitters’ backs.”
