HARBOR CITY - Last year, the San Pedro High softball team got their 13th victory of the 2013 season on April 27.

The 2014 Pirates are well ahead of last year's pace, since they're now on an incredible roll by earning their 13th consecutive victory with a 9-4 victory over host Narbonne of Harbor City in the Marine League opener for both teams.

Down 1-0 after one inning, San Pedro (13-2 overall, 1-0) would take control with seven-run barrage in the top of the second inning, which was the one inning the Pirates needed on this day to be victorious. It all got started by simply being patient at the plate, then picking their spot to seize the moment.

Narbonne sophomore left-handed pitcher Kaitlin Buff, who made news last season by striking out 13 to lead the Gauchos to a 2-1 upset at San Pedro last season, would struggle in her first 15 pitches of the second inning as she walked San Pedro senior catcher Armida Roman, junior right fielder Taylor Richter and senior pitcher Jocelyn Kondash to load the bases. During that time, only three of those 15 pitches were called for strikes.

It was time for San Pedro to make their move, and they capitalized.

Senior first baseman Katrina Herrera would lace a single to center field to drive in Richter and freshman courtesy runner Andrea Trejo for a 2-1 San Pedro lead, and it would balloon from there.

Junior second baseman Johnie Cortez followed with a double down the right field line to drive home freshman courtesy runner Deanna Gonzalez. One out later, a fielding error brought in Herrera, then freshman third baseman Andrea Cline blasted a double to right-center field on the first pitch she sees to drive home Cortez and junior center fielder Cayla Ezelle. Roman followed with a single to bring in Cline to cap off the onslaught.

When the top of the second inning finally ended, San Pedro sent 12 batters to the plate.

Narbonne (4-9, 0-1) would scratch a run of Kondash in the third inning, and take advantage of three hit batters in the sixth to score two more times, cutting their deficit down to 7-4, but then San Pedro responded with two runs in the seventh inning to finish the scoring. Kondash and Herrera hit back-to-back RBI-singles, and senior pitcher Jaclyn Rivera relieved Kondash in the bottom of the seventh and pitched a 1-2-3 inning to end the game.

Herrera, who missed all of last year due to an injury, has been making up for lost time in a big way, as she went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a run scored to power San Pedro. Roman, another senior who has had a renaissance year with six home runs, went 2-for-3 with an RBI.

San Pedro, who is coming off winning the Whittier Tournament championship last Saturday, will now put its win streak to the ultimate test on Friday as they host defending CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I champion Carson.
