It was a good start to what Todd Erdos hopes is no repeat of 2013.
Jesse Savisky pitched four shut-out innings and Nate Kibbie
went 3-for-3 at the plate as
The Golden Tornado suffered through a 2-16 campaign last year.
“It was only our second time outside since we began
practicing,” said Erdos,
The Golden Tornado broke the ice in the bottom of the third inning. Kibbie reached on an infield single and stole second base before he was driven home on Ryan Denny’s double.
Denny advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Cory Wheeler’s sacrifice fly.
The two runs were all
Savisky struck out five and walked one to earn the win.
“He threw strikes,” said Erdos. “He pitched himself out of a jam in the second inning. The bases were loaded with one out and he struck out two batters to get out of it.”
Woodland Hills was limited to six singles.
