La Jolla High’s varsity baseball team won two of three games last week, improving to 14-6 overall and 4-1 in Western League play.

The Vikings opened the week by dominating cross-town rival The Bishop’s School 11-3 in a non-league contest. Kevin Usselman was 2-for-4 with a triple and 3 RBIs, Bobby Schuman was 2-for-3 with a double and 2 RBIs and Sam Schneider earned his second victory of the year pitching in relief.

Eric Pitrofsky did a bit of everything against University City High School in the second game of the week. On the mound, he threw his third consecutive complete game, improving his record to 7-1. At the plate, he collected two hits and scored two runs as La Jolla cruised to a 9-1 victory. Ronan Young and Usselman also had two hits each.

The Vikings came up just short in the third game of the week, dropping a 4-3 contest to UCHS. Pitrofsky had two more hits and an RBI, while Alex Eliopulos and Tyson Youngs also drove in runs for the Vikings.

The 14-6 record represents the best mark for the school through the first 20 games since the 2007 season.

Upcoming games:

• At Madison High, May 4, 3 p.m.

• At Point Loma High, May 7, 3:15 p.m.
