High School Roundup: La Jolla splits with University City

The La Jolla Vikings baseball team (9-13, 2-5) used a late rally to come from behind and steal a 2-1 victory over visiting University City last week, but fell short Monday in a 9-2 loss to the Centurions.

In the first game, starting pitcher Tyson Youngs threw four scoreless innings before giving way to an aching back. Eric Pitrofsky came in relief and kept the Vikings close until the offense could break through in the bottom of the 6th.

Max Needham led off the sixth inning with a single to left field and with one out, Kevin Usselman hit a single to right field advancing Needham to second base. Jimmy Meyerott then stepped to the plate and lined a single to right center field to bring home the tying run. Spencer Manlapig capped off the scoring with a deep sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Usselman with the go ahead run.
Bradley Zimmer pitched a scoreless 7th inning, earning his second save of the season.
“This was a huge win for us,” La Jolla coach Gary Frank said. “The guys showed a lot of heart and character by coming back against a very tough pitcher late in the game.”
