Carlmont’s varsity baseball‘s official season continued on Friday, March 9, in a winning game versus King’s Academy.

Jasper Loo, a junior and center fielder, said, “I think the beginning of the season is going okay so far; we are now 4-2 with our two losses being against good teams [Pioneer and Serra].”

The Scots came in strong Friday afternoon, taking the Knights by storm.

Although, the first inning did not depict that.

Carlmont’s first at-bat seemed promising, with Loo leading off with a solid double, only for the firsts inning to quickly coming to an end after two strikeouts and a caught pop fly.

The second inning turned around in the field, with Jason Korjeff, a senior and pitcher, keeping hits at bay, and only letting one runner on base.

Jake Robinson, a senior and right fielder, said, “A defensive strength we showed was our pitching. Korjeff threw an incredible complete game and kept the ball in the infield for most of the game, which gave our offense a confidence boost to help back up our pitcher.

The bottom of the second inning brought the Scots another quick three outs, leading them back to the field, only to instantly serve two strikeouts and a caught pop fly to the Knights at-bat.

The bottom of the third brought good news for the Scots. Multiple singles, a double, and a double RBI by Tyler Desmidt, a senior and third baseman, brought Carlmont five runs, bringing the score to 5-0 Scots.

Korjeff said, “On Friday, we demonstrated that we were able to get our jobs done at the plate. When runners were on second, we moved them to third with right-side ground balls and then hit sac flies to get them home.”

The Scots held the Knights until the sixth inning, where they scored a run, getting the score to 5-1 Scots.

Carlmont finished the game off strong, ending with a final score of 5-1 Scots.

Robinson said, “One thing I think our team needs to work on this season is finding the right approach in all aspects of the game; keeping confidence in every at-bat, not feeling down when you make a mistake and trying to pick up your teammates when they mess up. Having confidence all the time is one of the keys to being successful in this game.”
