Championship: Corey Hare hit a two run homer for Bonita in the first, giving the Bearcats a 3-1 lead.
…Glendora’s Kyle Layton came right back with a two-run homer in the third to tie the score, 3-3. After another hit and pair of walks loaded the bases, Jacob Smigelsky scored on a wild pitch, putting the Tartans back in front, 4-3 in the third inning.
… With Bonita’s Mier on third with two outs in the bottom half of the third, Evan Highley hit a hard grounder to third that was bobbled, reaching first on an error while Mier scored to tie it again, 4-4.
….Oh Nicooooo Calderaro, the pitcher for Bonita, went deep to center in the bottom of the fourth, giving the Cats a 5-4 lead. Then Jason Plowman followed with an even deeper homer to center in the fifth, pushing their lead to 6-4. They added two more runs in the fifth to lead comfortably 8-4.
Breaking News: In the second game, Northview bounces back and defeats Diamond Ranch, 14-6 for third place.
Breaking News: The early game is over and Ayala beats Bishop Amat, 2-1.
Question: Should the winner of tonight’s game be the new No. 1 next week? I think so, but it’s debatable, Northview, Bishop Amat, Damien, they’re all right there. If Glendora wins it’s automatic, but if Bonita prevails, then you have a lot of good one-loss arguments. I am at Henderson field and will provide scoring updates when I get a chance.
