CdM pitchers maintain roll

Corona del Mar High junior Ben Maggard personified mound efficiency

Saturday, throwing just 63 pitches in a complete-game shutout to key

a 5-0 victory in a consolation game of the Newport Elks tournament

Saturday at CdM.

Maggard threw 47 strikes and started 21of 30 hitters off with a

strike in a game Sea Kings Coach John Emme said lasted only 80

minutes.

Maggard's mastery helped extend the team's shutout streak to 14

innings and Corona del Mar hurlers have allowed just one run in 24

innings, heading into Tuesday's nonleague Battle of the Bay showdown

with visiting Newport Harbor.

Jake Lemmerman singled in a run to open the scoring and Andy

Frenkiel drove in two more with a single to stake Maggard to a 3-0

lead in the third.

R.J. Duernberger and Tyler Ray had RBI singles in the fourth for

the Sea Kings (3-2).

Lemmerman, Duernberger and Mitch Folks all went 2 for 3 for the

winners.

OCC win Clear-cut

It was the fourth win in a row, all against conference competition

for Coach John Altobelli's Pirates, who improved to 10-7, 4-1 in

After the visitors scored once in the first, freshman Stephen

Schneider staked Clear to a bigger lead by belting a grand slam to

singled and Luke Beck was hit by a pitch to set the stage for

Schneider.

Schneider was walked intentionally to load the bases in the

seventh and Ricky Stokes followed with a two-run single to spark a

three-run rally.
