SANTA CLARA — There are seven ways a baseball player can reach first base: a hit, a walk, a fielder’s choice, an error, hit by pitch, dropped third strike and defensive interference.

The Capuchino baseball team, seeded second, used four of them during a 12-5 win over third-seeded The King’s Academy in a Central Coast Section Division V semifinal game at Mission College in Santa Clara Tuesday.
