CALEXICO — The Vincent Memorial High baseball team started another game on the right track, but errors and defensive struggles led to the Scots being destroyed by Calipatria High 18-9 in five innings here Friday as Vincent Memorial allowed the game to be called.
"The team really needs discipline," said Nick Santos, who started the game as a Scot outfielder.
"We started out really good," Santos said. "I bet we could have stayed good if we had more discipline."
Hornet coach Tom Cato said his team was impressed, but not intimidated, with the way the Scots opened a 3-0 lead, largely a result of a Julian Escalera two-run homer.
"Our kids were just trying to pass time," Cato explained, adding the game did not start until the umpire finally showed up over an hour late.
