The Leopards showed no mercy Saturday as they pounced on the Caltech Beavers, 10-0 and 18-2, in the weekend doubleheader.

In game one, the Leopards scored six runs, off of five hits, in the first inning.

That would be all the offense the Leopards would need, as pitcher Matt Baudino held the Beavers to only two singles, both of which came in the fourth, in seven innings of work.

Baudino is now 5-3 on the year with a stellar 3.86 earned run average.

There was no let up in game two, as La Verne completed the sweep of Caltech, with 18 runs off 19 hits.

“It was nice to get some wins because we had it rough last week against Cal Lutheran,” said senior catcher Mike Surina.

The Beavers struck first with one run in the first inning, but La Verne came back with a big second inning, scoring six run on six hits.

Centerfielder Zack Canfield brought in the first Leopard run with a sacrifice fly to right field, bringing in Surina.

Shortstop Matt Proulx added another run with a single to center, and second baseman Sergio Munoz continued the hitting with a two-run triple to left center field.

La Verne would add two more runs, on two singles and a walk.

The Leopards’ offense did not stop in the second inning, adding one run in the bottom of the third and a home run by left fielder Victor Peinado in the bottom of the fourth.

La Verne added eight more runs in the bottom half of the fifth inning.

Four of the runs were homers, coming off of Caltech pitcher Mike Gherini, who gave up a total of six home runs.
Canfield began the scoring assault with an inside-the-park home run to the deepest part of the field.

Munoz brought in third baseman Tony Kissinger, with a two-run home run to left center field.

The next two homers would come off the bats of Cody Hazel and Peinado.

Starting pitcher Tim Jolly welcomed the offense, but did not need it as he pitched five innings, giving up two runs on six hits, striking out seven and walking only two batters.

“Whether it’s 1-0 or 15-0, I’m going to go out there and pitch my hardest,” Jolly said.

Jolly improved his overall record to 3-4 on the year.

The Leopards added three more runs in the bottom of the sixth with a single by designated hitter Kevin Ibarra and a two-run home run by third baseman Jon-Michael Hattabaugh.

Freshmen Nathan Vargas finished the game, pitching two scoreless innings, only giving up a single.

The sweep of the Beavers came after losing five games in a row. Even with the losing streak, La Verne never stopped believing in themselves.

“We didn’t lose our confidence,” senior second baseman David Contreras said.

“We knew we weren’t playing good baseball, and we needed to fix that,” he added.

“This series came at good time,” Surina said. “It gives us something to roll with going into the Claremont series.”

With an overall record of 16-13, and a conference record of 10-8, the Leopards will try to keep the momentum going, as they host Claremont-Mudd-Scripps at 3 p.m., today at Ben Hines Field.

After the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps series La Verne will face each team in the conference one more time, something that was implemented this year.

“It’s good to feel a win,” Surina said. “Hopefully the feeling keeps going.”
