The Napa High baseball team defeated host American Canyon, 11-0, on Thursday in a game called after five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.

The Indians (4-2) won their third straight as Andrew Raymond collected the complete-game win and helped his cause with a single and RBI.

“Andrew gave us a great effort today,” Napa head coach Todd Pridy said. “He mixed his pitches well and consistently worked ahead in the count. He has looked strong in his two starts on the mound this season.”

For the third game in a row, the Indians’ offense came alive early and often up and down the lineup. Jason Pridy (3 for 4, RBI, three runs, two stolen bases), Caden Cortese (2 for 4, three RBIs, run), Charles Gravett (2 for 3, double, RBI, run), Colton Maher (2 for 3, double, two runs) and Trent Maher (2 for 3, two RBIs, run) led Napa’s 12-hit barrage.

American Canyon’s offense was led by Jimmy Larson, Freddy Tenbrink, Nicholas Seah and Victor Vega, with one hit apiece.
