Lots of hits was the theme for the Cordova High School baseball team last week.

The Lancers banged out 16 hits, which led to a 24-2 win over Burbank on the Titans’ field in a non-league contest on March 10th. The game was called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Leading the way for Cordova (1-3) was Spencer Gudgel, who went 3-for-4 that included two doubles. Lancer players who had two hits in the game were Ryan Tipton, Trevor Ready, Zack Guererro and Jeremy Buck. Tipton also smacked a double, along with teammates Nick Ravareau, Colby McDonald and Jordan Meyers.

The Lancers’ Logan Appino, one of six seniors on this year’s Cordova squad, walked four times in the game. That led to stealing three bases. Guererro and Buck had two stolen bases each.

On the mound, Cordova used three pitchers against the Titans’ bats. Appino started the game for the Lancers, going two innings and allowed only one hit. Closing the game was Austin Smith. Burbank had only three hits.

The Lancers started Sierra Valley Conference action on Wednesday, hosting Rosemont. Today, Friday, Cordova plays at Union Mine to continue SVC action.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Cordova plays another non-league game at Sheldon of Sacramento. That game is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

Next Monday, the Lancers return to SVC action at El Dorado. On Tuesday, Cordova host Florin in non-league game, and play at Galt in SVC game next Wednesday. All games start at 4 p.m.
