Bulletin sports logo

Adrian Zuniga was near perfect Thursday when the Lathrop baseball team defeated visiting Edison 2-0 for its first win of the season.

The senior amassed 13 strikeouts in a no-hitter, walking just one. The defense did not commit an error behind him.

Zuniga got all the run support he needed in the third and fourth innings, when Adrian Gallardo and Carson Scott each had RBI singles. Omare Cross also had a hit in a game ruled by pitching.

Izaak Navarrete, Ethan Balanon and Santiago Moreno combined to throw a three-hitter for Edison (1-1).

The Spartans (1-3) will next face Stagg on the road on Monday.

The Knights (2-2) plated three runs in the top of the first and continued to tack on the insurance runs from there.

Luke Crivello was solid in his first start coming from the basketball season, facing seven batters while striking out four in two innings. He also chipped in two runs and an RBI offensively. Jordan Luisi (two runs, four hits, two walks, seven strikeouts) threw the middle three innings for the win, and Dustin Hoekstra struck out the side in the seventh.

Josh Crivello went 2 for 2 with a double and a run. Josh Buffalow contributed a double, two runs and an RBI. Ripon Christian totaled 10 hits.

The Knights play Ripon at Islanders Field in Lathrop next Wednesday starting at 3:30 p.m.
