Skyline, Mountain View Force “If” Games in 6A Tournament
Skyline 4 O’Connor 4 (8 Inn)
Skyline used a 4 run 7th inning rally to force extras and took a 5-4 win over O’Connor in 8 innings.
Junior lefthander Cal Lambert was tossing a shutout through 6 innings before Skyline broke through, scoring a pair of runs on a Cole Yocum RBI double and 2 more on RBIs from AJ Herrera and Eric Olson to force overtime.
In the 8th it was Yocum again with an RBI knock to score Cole Lopez and put the Coyotes up for good.
Olson earned the win in relief on the mound.
Mountain View 7 Mountain Ridge 1
John Neeley tossed 6 strong innings and Tyler Barnes knocked in 4 runs as Mountain View took a 7-1 win over Mountain Ridge to force a Saturday night clash to determine the Pool A representative in Tuesday’s 6A Championship game.
Neeley allowed only 2 hits and a solo unearned run in his 6 innings of work. In addition, he needed only 72 pitches and would therefore be available on Tuesday if the Toros can advance to the title game.
Barnes got the Toros on the board in the first, driving home Cam Jowaiszas with an RBI single.
Barnes was 3 -4 on the day, and his bases loaded double in the 3rd inning cleared the bases and gave the Toros a 5-1 lead.
Joe Georgini had a 3 hit game for the Toros, and Brandon Todd and Sean Rimmer had 2 hits apiece.
