Rebels Win First Game Against Heat

The Riverside Rebels (1-6, 1-4) defeated the High Desert Heat (3-3, 1-3) 7-1 Saturday afternoon at Victor Valley College led by three-hit days from Joey Szczepanski and Zach Hubert.

Rebels’ starter Adam Quintana, a 2012 all-SCCBL selection, returned to form in seven dazzling innings of work, striking out seven and only allowing one run.

The Rebels jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Seth Walston’s two-run double scored Hubert and Joe Battaglia. Walston was brought in by an RBI knock by Chris Gonzales.

The Heat answered with one run in the bottom of the first as Chris Solis belted in Connor Garrison, but that would be the only run they would score all game.

The Rebels plated one run in the second, sixth, eighth and ninth innings. Hubert ripped two RBI and Randy Castro added one. Szczepanski scored twice, Walston and Kayden Glass contributed one run each.

The High Desert Heat take on conference rival Long Beach on Sunday afternoon, while the Riverside Rebels will host Team Easton next Saturday.
