In thrilling fashion, Kaiser won the Division 4 softball title 1-0 over Garden Grove in 11 innings when pinch runner Rebecca Garcia raced home on a passed ball with two outs in the bottom of the 11th.
The title is the first softball title for Kaiser.
Alyssa Dilay started the inning with an infield single. Garcia ran for her, went to second on a sacrifice bunt and to third on a grounder to second. A pitch then got away from catcher Jenavee Peres and Garcia raced home with the game-winner.
It was the longest championship game since Rancho Cucamonga’s Division I, 12-inning win in 2001.
Kaiser is tied with Garden Grove 0-0 through 5 innings at the CIF-SS Division 4 championship game on Friday night.
Each team has only 2 hits, but each has missed opportunities.
Kaiser had 2 on and no outs in the fifth and didn’t score and Garden Grove had 2 on and 2 outs in the top of the fifth and failed to score.
Freshman Taylor Troost entered the game and struck out 10 of the 17 batters she faced, lifting top-seeded Citrus Valley to a 5-2 victory over Kern Valley in the Division 6 championship game at Deanna Manning Stadium on Friday.
Troost ented in the top of the third for Hayley Jaquess, who had been hit in the hand by a pitch in the bottom of the second. She didn’t allow a run, gave up only three hits in 4 2/3 innings.
Kern Valley had taken an early 2-0 lead in the second inning, but Citrus Valley took the lead for good with three runs in the bottom of the second. Ashlyn Morris’ bases-loaded, two-out, two-run single gave the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead. They added another run in the third and one in the fifth.
In the Division 6 softball championship game, Citrus Valley holds a 4-2 lead through 3 1/2 innings over Lake Isabella Kern Valley.
Ashlyn Morris’ two-run single scored the go-ahead run in a three-run second inning, giving the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead.
Junior Hayley Jaquess was the starting pitcher, but came out in the top of the third. She had been hit by a pitch while batting in the second inning and that appeared to be a factor why the change was made in favor of Taylor Troost.
Troost came in with runners on second and third with one out in the third, and retired the next two batters. She retired Kern Valley in order in the top of the fourth.
