La Salle-Peru baseball tops Ottawa 3-0 in classic pitchers’ duel at King Field

No. 1 pitchers – Cavalier’s Julius Sanchez and Pirates’ Jace Addis — battle in classic I-8 matchup

“We knew coming into today that Ottawa had only one loss in the conference and we were going to have to bring our all-around best effort. I knew (Jace) would be pitching for them, and he’s pretty good, so I knew I’d have to pitch a solid game.”
