The 13U Warriors (7-1) won their seventh straight game in defining fashion last weekend, pitching a perfect game and routing PBA-White by a score of 12-0. Austin Aguilar was untouchable on the mound, going three innings with six strikeouts. Seth Zermeno completed the perfect game pitching in the last inning with an efficient five-pitch outing.
The Warriors 13U team led 1-0 going into the bottom of the third inning, and rallied for 11 runs. Evan Rake, fresh off the DL, started the inning with a double down the left field line. Josh Hernandez and Zermeno followed with back-to-back line drive singles to ignite a rally. Following a groundout to the first baseman, the offense had seven consecutive hits. Steve Lim delivered his second double of the game in the inning and Hernandez also collected his second hit of the inning with a two-RBI double. Zermeno delivered the knockout blow with a blast off the left field wall.
Warriors 11U Blue
The Warriors 11U Blue team (4-2-1) lost to the older 12U Wolves by a score of 6-1, despite outhitting the Wolves 8-6. Fielding errors were the biggest differentiating factor for the Warriors team. Pitchers Braden Lowe, Connor Rice and Boon Faye combined for zero earned runs. The only earned runs surrendered came from a three-run homer off Warriors pitcher Kai Moran. The Warriors loaded the bases two times in the sixth and seventh innings, with hits by outfielders Cole Quigley and Boon Fay, and infielders Aidan Forte and Daniel Tovar. The only runs scored, however, occurred in the sixth inning when second baseman Rice took home plate on a passed ball and in the seventh inning after he knocked in Forte on a fielder’s choice.
Warriors 9U Blue
After a huge win the week prior against the Terror, the Warriors 9U Blue team (4-4) lost a tough game to Toluca’s Thunder last Sunday in Mid-Valley League play. Toluca jumped out to a 10-2 lead after three innings, but the Warriors rallied in the fourth and fifth innings to tie the game at 10-10. Pitchers Owen Dufelmeier and Benji Fernandez were effective on the mound, and Devin Aure and Joseph Norris had big hits to rally the team. The highlight of the game came when Oscar Noxon, a former Toluca player, tied the contest in the fifth inning with a clutch single. Toluca got the final at bat and with one out, drove in the winning run. The Warriors face the Thunder again in two weeks.
Warriors 9U Orange
The Warriors’ 9U Orange team (0-8) continued to struggle in Mid-Valley League play last Sunday, resulting in a 25-6 decision against the Terror. Pitcher Cutter East once again started for the Warriors 9U Orange team, and threw consistent strikes.
But the inability of the Warriors to consistently convert outs proved problematic. Orange jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, thanks to Benny Buckley’s RBI double. Theo Collins, Levi Rice and Reece Frankel also had hits for the Warriors.
Runs were at a premium in a game between the Warriors 8U team and the Bakersfield Roughnecks last Sunday, as only three runs were scored during the entire game. Resulting in a 2-1 Warriors loss to the Roughnecks. Outstanding pitching from Edward Maxam, Jackson Eisenhauer and Matthew Hoegee were the key to keeping the Warriors in the game.
Both runs scored by the Roughnecks were unearned, and if not for a couple defensive mishaps, the final score would have been different. Stellar defensive plays by Declan O’Malley and Beckett Hutchens, which both prevented scoring opportunities for the Roughnecks, were a decisive factor in the game.
Wyatt Kline and Jack Laffitte continued to have productive at bats, while Kline drove in Laffitte for the lone Warrior run in the top half of the fourth inning. The Roughnecks captured the lead in the bottom of the fifth inning, which proved to be the deciding factor in the game.
The Warriors will pick up again in two weeks against the East Valley Eagles.
