Newsday: James Dieguez doubles home go-ahead run in Kellenberg’s win

Apr 19 2017

By Newsday’s Mike Ruiz:

Kellenberg understands the significance of poise after winning the CHSAA baseball title last season. After St. John the Baptist responded quickly in the fourth inning on Tuesday, James Dieguez displayed plenty of it.

Dieguez ripped a double just past a diving third baseman in the bottom of the fourth to put the Firebirds ahead for good in a 6-2 victory over St. John the Baptist.

“I just wanted to put the ball in play,” Dieguez said. “This is a big series and I just wanted to give us the lead.”

St. John the Baptist evened the score at 2 in the top of the fourth on a line-drive single to right by Matt Archer, who went 3-for-4 with an RBI.
