Lone Pine High School Baseball drops 2nd round CIF Game
by Arnie Palu May 25, 2016
The highly decorated Lone Pine senior class wrapped up their high school careers Tuesday with a 3-0 loss to Santa Paula in the CIF Southern Section division 6 baseball championships. Lone Pine senior right pitcher Ryan Cappello went the distance on the hill limiting the Cardinals to 3 runs, but the Golden Eagle bats were silenced. Coach Mike Button says the Lone Pine nine had a case of the at-em’s, noting the Golden Eagles put the ball in play, they just simply found it hard to locate gaps in the Santa Paula defense.
Coach Button thanked his assistant coaches Joe Cappello and Lamont Dawson and score keepers Krista Sullivan and Alicia Brice. Coach also wants to thank team Mom Malissa Cappello for her efforts along with all the parents and fans for their support.
Lone Pine finishes the season runners up in the Desert Mountain League with a DML record of 10-4. Desert Mountain League Champion Desert Christian (Lancaster) advanced in the Division 6 tournament. The Knights will now battle Crean Lutheran in the round of 8.
Santa Paula is now the lone public school remaining in the Division 6 bracket. Santa Paula has a total enrollment of approximately 1,600 students. Lone Pine currently has 93 students enrolled.

Rival Kern Valley got the best of the Bishop Broncos Tuesday. Kern Valley’s varsity baseball and softball teams topped Bishop via the 10-run mercy rule. Bishop exacted a measure of revenge by winning both JV games. Bishop Union will continue their home stand Friday hosting Rosamond. The varsity boys game will be live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here on the listen live link.
Kern Valley 15
Bishop Union 3 (5 innings)
Kern Valley’s Zack Bushling hit a 1st inning breaking ball into the trees outside right field,the rest of his day would be a walk in the park. Bushling’s 2-run home run started a 3-run first inning and set the stage for a KV win. After allowing Bushling to rattle the tree limbs in the opening inning the Broncos walked him three times, twice walking Zack intentionally…with the bases loaded. In a move of ultimate respect, or perhaps fear of property damage, the Broncos choose to walk in a run rather then allow the Kern Valley junior a chance to knock in multiple runs. Following their 3-run first inning KV scored a single run in the 2nd, three more in the 3rd and blew the game open with a 8-run 4th inning effort.
Patrick Mitton, 1 for 2, single, hit by pitch, run.
