Yucaipa downs Fontana 3-2 in first game at San Manuel Stadium

Not everything is new at the ballpark in San Bernardino, but there is a new name on it: San Manuel Stadium as officially christened on Wednesday.
A game between Fontana and Yucaipa followed, with Yucaipa pulling out a 3-2 victory on Billy Baldwin’s one-out RBI single that snapped a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning.
For Fontana, Juan Robles had a two-run double (in the top of the sixth to tie the score) and Anthony Ayala was 2 for 3 with a double and a run scored. Greg Espinosa was 2 for 2 with a double and two runs scored (including a steal of home) and Alec Morabito was 2 for 3 with an RBI to lead Yucaipa.
Tyler Sapp got the final two outs for Yucaipa with the tying run in scoring position to earn the save.

The field is in immaculate shape, in part because of improvements. The infield grass and dirt are all new, but the rest of the field that looks so great is just because it has been well-maintained. There are more signs around the ballpark and the parking lot has been repaved.

A full County Clash will take place on Saturday at the ballpark: Pacific vs. San Bernardino at 1 p.m., Rialto vs. Colton at 4 p.m. and Yucaipa-Redlands at 7 p.m.

Summit comes up short, 69-59

The Summit girls basketball team was as close as one point as late as the third quarter, but they eventually fell 69-59 at top-seeded Santa Ana Mater Dei in a CIF State Division I Southern California Regionals semifinal on Tuesday night.

Jillian Alleyne scored 18 points with 17 rebounds, Ajaee Foster scored 11 of her 14 points in the second half, Ashley Weissmann made 3-of-5 3-pointers and scored 12 points, while Brooklynn Jackson made two 3-pointers and scored eight points and Adrianna Brodie scored seven. All the Summit points were scored by the starters, who played almost the entire game.

Summit, the CIF-SS Division 1A champion, actually fell behind 60-46 in the fourth before battling back one final time to get within 64-59 when Weissmann made three free throws with 32.4 seconds left. But Mater Dei made 5-of-8 free throws from there on out to close out the game.

Summit hanging in with Mater Dei at the half

The huge underdog Summit girls basketball team is hanging with Santa Ana Mater Dei in a Division I Southern California Regional semifinal tonight.
They led by as many as four points in the first half and are within six (36-30) at halftime here at Mater Dei.
Jillian Alleyne has 11 points and seven rebounds at halftime and Adrianna Brodie has seven points at the half for Summit, more than she scored in the entire game on Saturday night at Corona Santiago.
Ashley Weissmann also made two 3-pointers and Summit is shooting much better from the line than the SkyHawks did against Santiago, making seven of nine free throws in the first half.
