The Chiefs Varsity Baseball team suffered a tough loss against their crosstown rival, Park Vista, losing 9 to 4.

The baseball team held their own against a strong team that is ranked #10 in the nation by MaxPreps. For the first four-innings, the Chiefs came out with a strong defense and great pitching by Cody Morgan. The Cobras were not able to get past first base.

As the fifth inning rolled around, the momentum shifted. Park Vista and the Chiefs began to get on base and make runs. The Cobras were able to gain five runs with the Chiefs right behind them with three runs in this inning.

In both the sixth and seventh innings for the Chiefs, they fell short of runs that they needed, only scoring one run in the sixth inning. On the other hand, the Cobras were able to keep the momentum they built up in the fifth inning. This allowed them to get four more runs in the remainder of the game.

For playing a team that is ranked in the top ten of the nation, the Chiefs held their own. It is only the start of the season and there is still a lot more baseball to be played.

The Chiefs next game is away at Olympic Heights, March 13th, at 6:30 pm.
