College Park rattled off another instrumental win on the diamond early on in the season.
Following a 5-4 defeat to Amador Valley in 10 innings in the season opener, the College Park Falcons baseball team (2-1) recorded its second consecutive ranked win, this time coming in 7-1 fashion at No. 13 Acalanes (0-2) on Tuesday.
The win came one day after they recorded a 7-2 victory over No. 2 Granada.
From the jump, the Falcons took control of the ballgame.
An error on Brogan Rattary’s at-bat and then Xavier Guillen’s walk eventually led Primo Rodriguez to lifting a two-run single, giving the Falcons an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning without an out on the scoreboard.
While Acalanes responded with a run in the bottom of the first inning following an error to cut the Falcons’ lead to 2-1, it was all College Park from that point forward.
Kevwe Ojo reached base, stole third base and scored on a Marcus McClennon sacrifice fly, and then Jacob Courtney rounded home on Xavier Guillen’s RBI groundout to extend the advantage to 4-2 in the second inning.
Three more College Park runs came across on Courtney’s RBI single, Rattary scoring on a wild pitch and McClennon’s second hit of the ballgame bringing home CJ Wigren
College Park starting pitcher Robert Aivazian surrendered just one hit in 4.2 innings of action, with the only run he allowed coming of the unearned variety. He also struck out five batters.
Kyle Johnston and Jayden Parez tossed a combined 2.1 scoreless innings and combined for three strikeouts.
Courtney was a perfect 2-for-2 at the plate for the Falcons, hitting a single and a double.
McClennon also registered two hits in a 2-for-3 outing – with both hits coming on singles – next to a pair of RBIs.
Peter de Wit joined Courtney as the second Falcon to hit a double.
Acalanes and College Park return to the diamond to conclude their two-game set this week at 4 p.m. Thursday at College Park.
