Albert Einstein Academy baseball made sure its first playoff win in school history was a memorable one.

The AEA Rockets crushed Coastal Christian 25-3 on Wednesday in a CIF-Southern Section Division VII wild-card game at College of the Canyons.

Now AEA (10-9) gets to remember its first postseason victory as one in which three of its players tallied four hits and three of them had four RBIs.

The Rockets scored 10 runs in the first inning, five in the second and four in the third to build a 19-0 lead.

With no mercy rule in place, it was just a matter of making it through the game.

“We stopped stealing,” said Einstein head coach Ken Erenberg. “We stopped everything after the second inning.”

For the Rockets, Vance Norman went 4-for-4 with four RBIs, Dillon Lutza went 4-for-6 with four RBIs, Louie Manglit was 3-for-5 with four RBIs and four runs, and Isidro Panduro went 4-for-7 with two RBIs and six runs.

In all, Einstein had 21 hits against three different pitchers from Coastal Christian (5-6).

Norman pitched the first three innings without allowing a run and Samuel Fields took over for the next four innings and allowed three runs, one earned.

Fields also added three RBIs and scored four runs as a hitter.

“The hitting’s been there most of the year,” Erenberg said. “We just hope the defense is there.”

Einstein’s win earns it a spot in the first round on Friday, when it will travel to face the Division VII No. 2 seed, Nuview Bridge.
