The Sierra Canyon baseball team keeps moving along.

The Trailblazers split a pair of Mission League games this past week and shut out El Segundo on Saturday for a 2-1 week.

Ethan Montes and Armando Solorio combined on a 2-hitter with five strikeouts in Wednesday’s 6-3 victory.

Andrew Nelson was 3-4 with a double and two RBI’s. Nelson also walked and scored a run.

Desi Delgado, a promising freshman, had two hits, walked, an RBI and scored a run.

Montes helped his own cause at the plate with a double and scored a run.

Jack Shtrum, son of 1994 Montclair Prep graduate Jenny Rousso, had an RBI.

In the 3-1 setback a day earlier at M.J. Siegel field, freshman right-hander Sean Parrow gave up three earned runs, yielding four walks and struck out six.

Jonny Hagopian went three string innings, striking out four.

Nelson, Delgado and UC San Diego-bound Julian Areliz each had a hit for the Trailblazers.

Greyson Gullage doubled for Sierra Canyon.

Saturday’s 3-0 shut out against El Segundo saw Owen Knutson and Hagopian combine on a four-hit blanking of the Eagles.

Delgado had an RBI triple and scored a run, Gullage had an RBI hit and Ajani Wrighster doubled.

Sierra Canyon is back at it with three key games against Chaminde this week.
