Apparently, Central Catholic was a bit perturbed by its loss to Enochs on the first day of the 45th annual Dick Windemuth Easter Baseball Tournament, because the Raiders took out their frustrations in their second game.
After losing 13-6 in their tourney opener, the Raiders came roaring back with a 24-0 thumping of Johansen on Monday at Enochs High School.
Sam Mundt was the star at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two home runs, six runs batted in and five runs scored. Matt Clark was 5-for-5 with three doubles and five runs, while Austin Escobar, Joseph Candelario and Kyle Costa had two hits apiece.
Escobar, who started on the mound for the Raiders, and Mundt, who came on to relieve in the fourth inning, combined to no-hit the Vikes.
Enochs handed CC just its second loss of the season.
Matt Clark, Bradley Nightengale and Trevor Bunch each had two hits apiece for the Raiders (18-1).
Tournament co-host Modesto also earned a pair of victories, beating Modesto Metro Conference rival Davis 12-1 and Modesto Christian 11-1.

Pruett, a senior left-hander, struck out 13 and walked none.
Orestimba struck for three runs in the first inning and let Pruett (6-0) do the rest.
Cameron Mar and Austin Martins each were 2-for-4 for the Warriors, while Adrian Perez and Noah Winters collected two RBIs apiece.
Hughson conceivably could meet Orestimba in Thursday’s championship round, but if the Trans-Valley League teams don’t cross paths in this tournament, they’ll meet May 6-7 for a home-and-home series that could determine the TVL crown.
In other scores, Excel Academy (Stockton) defeated Rio Vista 3-2, and Salesian defeated Brookside Christian (Stockton) 9-1.
