The West Valley baseball team recorded its most efficient offensive outing of the year, scoring 18 runs on 19 hits in an 18-2 rout of City College of San Francisco Thursday at Valhalla.
It was the seventh straight win for the Vikings (11-8, 2-0 Coast-North), who grabbed a 4-0 lead in the first and were off to the races.
The Vikings sent 12 players to the plate in the second, scoring eight runs, highlighted by a Grizzle two-run single, a Riveron RBI single, a Wright two-run double and a Jacob Dressler RBI single.
WVC added two runs in the seventh and eighth, taking advantage of a quartet of errors by the Rams (2-14, 0-2).
Starter Luke Short picked up the win, going five innings with four K's and four hits. Short was backed by flawless middle relievers Amrin Dhillon and Erik Peterson, who gave up no runs on a combined two hits in three innings of work. Jake De Fiore earned the save, striking out two Rams in the ninth.
West Valley opens a two-game series at Skyline (13-4, 1-1) Saturday (3/7) and then at Valhalla Tuesday (3/10). First pitch Saturday is 1:00pm and 2:30pm Tuesday.
