Corona del Mar’s baseball team pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift the Sea Kings to a 6-5 non-league victory Tuesday over Esperanza at CdM.
CdM (6-1-1) rallied from a 5-0 deficit after the first inning and won the game when Kieran Sidebotham delivered a walk-off single driving in Luc Stuca, who was hit by a pitch and went to second base on a wild pitch.
Nick Rottler was 2 for 3 and had a home run for CdM. Jarrett Thompson came through on the mound with 6 2/3 innings of relief to earn the victory. He allowed five hits and struck out eight.
