Centaurs Shutout Elsinore High 3-0

The Culver City High Centaurs won their first CIF Baseball playoff game since 2012 as they shutout the Elsinore High Tigers 3-0 at home today, Friday, May 20.

Culver starter Nolan Martinez pitched a 7-inning complete game, allowing just 3-hits, one walk while striking out seven. Only one Elsinore runner reached third base.

The Centaurs scored two runs in the fourth inning when Mike Netzel got things going with a leadoff double. Jacob Weiner drove him in with a single and soon scored on an Eli Saucedo single.

The team added an insurance run in the sixth inning as Ryan Weiner led off with a double and scored sliding home beating the relay after Martinez drew a throw on an attempted steal at second base.

The Centaurs will host another Tiger team, San Luis Obispo High this Tuesday, May 24, at 3:15 p.m. Look for updates and read the complete story coming this week in the Culver City Observer.
