Carlsbad's Kayden Bratcher is tagged out by Clovis' Anthony Garcia out while he slides into home base on June 11, 2021. Carlsbad swept the season series.

CLOVIS — It took 16 innings for Clovis High to finally dent the scoreboard against District 4-5A rival Carlsbad this season.

It took even longer for the Wildcats to get a hit.

CHS suffered its third consecutive no-hit loss to the Cavemen in the opener of Friday’s doubleheader at Bell Park, although the Cats finally broke through late for some runs in a 7-3 loss.

Their first hit came on senior Norbert Archibeque’s two-out single to center in the first inning of the nightcap. Clovis collected seven hits in that one, but still came out on the short end of a 7-2 verdict.

“We can’t get a bloop or even a ground ball when we need it,” CHS coach Richard Cruce said. “I thought we kind of gave away two good games, for the most part, by our pitchers.”
