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.
