SOFTBALL
DEL RIO LEAGUE
CAL 12, SANTA FE 0


SANTA FE SPRINGS >> That showdown for first place in the Del Rio League never materialized on Thursday.
California, one of the hotter softball teams in the area, dominated from the start.
Justice Sharp had two RBIs and threw six shutout innings, and the Condors took advantage of five errors by host Santa Fe to score a 12-0 victory.
Sierra Rodriquez had three hits and Jaclyn Macias and Nautica Rivera had two RBIs each for California, which improved to 12-11 and 5-0 in league play. Sharp gave up five hits and struck out two.
Santa Fe, which had won five of six, slipped to 11-10 and 4-2.
Cal, which is at La Serna Friday, holds a two-game lead in the loss column over Santa Fe and La Serna with two weeks left in the season.
Cal jumped out early, taking a 3-0 lead in the first. Sarah Duran led off with a single before taking third base on a double by Marina Tamayo. Sharp then doubled to center field with two outs for a 2-0 lead. Rivera then followed with a single to right field for the three-run lead.
The Condors pushed it to 5-0 in the third on a walk, an error and a two-base throwing error. They blew it open in the seventh with seven runs, highlighted by a two-run home run by Skiela Martinez.
Cal coach Monica Robles: “It’s a big win. We are halfway in (league play) and are 5-0. It was a good win. Santa Fe only had one loss in league, so with this win, it put us over the edge. Now we’re at 5-0, so we’re doing good.”
Cal’s Justice Sharp: “It was important to get the win, because we want to go 10-0.”

SANTA FE SPRINGS >>strong> Bishop Amat High School was in position to possibly clinch the Del Rey League softball title on Tuesday against rival St. Paul.The Swordsmen said no, not at their place.
Kayla Rivas had the go-ahead RBI in a three-run fourth inning and Emilee Leonard was steady in the circle to lead St. Paul to a 3-2 victory over Bishop Amat at Jersey Fields.

Leonard and Nia Carter also had RBIs in the fourth inning for St. Paul, which improved to 14-8 overall and into second place in league play at 5-3. Leonard gave up eight hits and struck out six.
Gabby Bracamonte went 3 for 4 with a RBI and Alyssa Barrera had a double and a triple and scored a run for Bishop Amat, which slipped to 17-3 and 7-1.
“It means a lot,” Rivas said. “If we didn’t win this, it would have been a whole different week next week. It meant a lot getting that hit (in the fourth) and the extra runs.”
The Lancers’ Samaria Diaz had given up one hit through the first three innings before the Swordsmen solved her in the fourth with fourth singles for a 3-1 lead.
The Swordsmen put runners on first and second with one out of a single by Samantha Rivas and a hit by pitch to Sydney Kreimann. Leonard then tied it 1 with a single to center field. Kayla Rivas and Nia Carter followed with back-to-back singles to center to push it to 3-1.
“I think we just competed more (in the fourth),” Kayla Rivas said. “We had more focus.”
Leonard then survived a scare in the seventh. Sophia Saucedo and Bracamonte had singles before a RBI groundout by Maddie Ramirez cut it to 3-2 with two outs. Leonard then induced Julia Valenzuela to pop out to end the game.
“(Leonard) did a great job of putting the ball low and outside,” said Bishop Amat coach Kristen Dedmon, whose Lancers had taken a 1-0 lead in the first on a triple by Barrera and a double by Bracamonte. “We struggled with it all game without making an adjustment. Our hitters will just move on from here knowing what we need to work on and come out Thursday ready to make those adjustments.”
