High School Baseball : Crespi Musters Only 1 Hit Off Bushart, Siegel

John Bushart and Tony Siegel combined for a one-hitter as Thousand Oaks High beat Crespi, 2-0, Saturday in the consolation championship of the Redondo-Palos Verdes tournament at Thousand Oaks.

Bushart, a senior left-hander, retired all nine batters he faced and Siegel (2-0), a sophomore right-hander, allowed one hit, walked one and struck out four in the last four innings.

Only two Crespi runners reached base. Pat Bennett singled in the sixth, but the next batter grounded into a double play. John Dempsey walked in the fifth but was thrown out attempting to steal second by Thousand Oaks catcher Jud Schlimgen.

Thousand Oaks (13-7) scored the only run it would need in the second when Schlimgen drove in Scott Haffner with a one-out single. Todd Lang, who had three doubles, scored the Lancers’ other run in the third when he walked, went to second on a hit batter and came home on a fielding error.


Thousand Oaks has won four in a row and allowed no earned runs and 10 hits in the past three games.
