Century scores 17 runs in rout of Anaheim

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

ANAHEIM - Century's baseball team had one thing on its mind going into Friday night’s contest against Anaheim: redemption.

The Centurions, who suffered their first league loss to the Colonists on Wednesday, responded with an emphatic 17-4 win at La Palma Park's Dee Fee Field.

Century (14-6, 8-1) pounded out 16 hits in its victory and also received a quality start from pitcher Cristian Lopez

Lopez scattered seven hits in a complete-game effort while fanning seven and allowing one walk.

Century's bats gave Lopez more than enough support, as the Centurions scored at least one run in all but one inning. Anaheim starter Adrian Gutierrez lasted three innings.

Lopez opened the scoring when a throwing error by Anaheim allowed him to reach home after a double by Robert Perez.

Nelson Guzman added a triple that scored two more runs in the second inning to give Century a 3-0 lead.

Eduardo Ojeda’s two-run base hit to shallow center field gave the Centurions a 5-0 advantage.

The Colonists (8-13, 5-4) showed some life and answered with a three-run third. Sal MercadoDerek Gonzalez and Gutierrez each chipped in an RBI to close the gap 5-3.

The rally was short lived, as Century broke the game open with a seven-run fourth. Guzman’s leadoff double began a string of seven consecutive hits.

Michael Fonseca’s inside-the-park home run capped the scoring in the inning, giving Century a 12-3 cushion.

Nick Lopez also took advantage of the spacious outfield by adding an inside-the-park home run that made the score 15-3.
