Toth’s grand slam, McCain’s nine k’s not enough in Cardinal loss

Cardinal slugger Madi Toth collected two hits Thursday against Trinity Classical Academy, including a bases-loaded home run. However, Santa Clarita Christian fell victim to its own defense in a 14-11 loss.

Cardinal starting pitcher Heather McCain tossed a complete game and struck out nine in what amounted to a tough loss. Only two of Trinity’s runs were earned.

Allie Acosta went 1-for-2 with two walks and added four more stolen bases to her team-leading total. The sophomore also scored two runs. Pam Ruffner was 2-for-4 with a couple of RBIs.
