    Congratulations to the San Marino team and coaches. They had a great run and sorry to see it end. They went from last in the Rio Hondo League in ’09 to the CIF Quarter Finals this year. Look forward to watching you next year.

    The Heralds scored their run in the fifth, which started with Danelle Zapien’s single to right. With one out and Zapien standing at third, Sara Moy reached on a bunt single.

    This set the stage for Kat Martene, who laid down a successful squeeze bunt that scored Zapien.

    If there were no errors and Danelle scored on a squeeze, why are you calling it an unearned run? We earned it.


    This specific brief review can make it’s exasperation manifest. This valuable opinion careens shortly directly into pet peeves which use nothing related to the post, highlighting as an alternative on generalizations about a lot of women, races, bicyclists, and also an ethnicity listed with the adjective made use of to be a noun. Another coded offending comment is contributed, followed directly by claims of the race card appearing played.


    In summary, disagreeing with this thought to any degree is considered to be censorship, that is certainly classic for you and your misdefined 19th-century agenda.
