Desert Classic: Centennial stuns third-ranked Doral Academy

Austin Kryszczuk went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run on Wednesday as Centennial High’s baseball team stunned Doral Academy (Florida), 7-3 in the Bishop Gorman Desert Classic at Mountain’s Edge Park.

The Bulldogs scored all of their runs in the third inning and the game was called after five innings due to a tournament time limit.

The Firebirds (12-1) are ranked third nationally by USA Today and built a 3-0 lead after two innings.

“We threatened in the first and second (innings) and had a base-running blunder in both innings,” Cerrone said. “But we came back and put a lot of good at-bats together in the third inning. We sprayed the ball all over.

“We always talk about going out and putting together a good effort, and we did that.”

Trevor Wright was 3-for-3 with a double, and Travis Rice was 1-for-3 with a double and two RBIs for Centennial.

Jonathan Merino tossed a four-hitter for Centennial, striking out four.

“We had a sophomore pitching, and he didn’t get rattled,” Cerrone said.

“It’s a good win.”
