NAIA West tournament, day 1

Written by Administrator - Thursday, 03 May 2012

Results from the first day of the NAIA West tournament at Hilken Community Stadium, Portland, OR, May 2:

College of Idaho 7, Concordia-Portland 5: A game that was close all the way, but the Coyotes scored runs in each of the last three innings to win it. RF Isaac Garsez scored the winning run in the eighth inning on a sacrifice fly by 1B Jesse Dodd. Garsez was 3-for-6 with a home run, an RBI, and two runs scored.

Starter Chad Yeggy went eight innings for the Coyotes. He gave up three runs (one of them unearned) in the first two innings, but gave up only one more the rest of the way. He gave up two hits at the start of the ninth inning, but Todd Griffiths moved from second base to the mound and got a double play ball and a line drive to the shortstop to finish the game with only one run coming in.

Jason Snodgrass, who allowed 13 hits, got the loss for the Cavaliers. 2B Mike Dickman went 2-for-4 for the Cavaliers.

Box score and play-by-play

Menlo 2, British Columbia 1: Oaks ace Joey Webb pitched a gem. He went the distance, held the Thunderbirds to one run on six hits, walked one, and struck out three. He threw 139 pitches.

The Oaks opened the scoring in the first inning, on and RBI single by 3B Michael Brandi. There wasn't any more scoring until the Oaks increased their lead to 2-0 with an RBI single by RF Collin Forgey in the seventh inning. The Thunderbirds got double plays in the second and third innings, and Thunderbird starter David Otterman picked off a baserunner at first to prevent further damage in the seventh. RF Sebastian Wong opened the sixth inning for the THunderbirds with a triple, and was stranded. The Thunderbirds had baserunners at second and third with one out in the seventh inning, with singles by 2B Andrew Firth and LF Nick Senior, but Firth was tagged out at home on a ground ball by 3B Mike Hole, and DH Gabe Mark grounded out to end the inning.

First place votes: LSU-Shreveport 18, Azusa Pacific 2

Azusa Pacific is #1 in Strength of Schedule

LSU-Shreveport won the Red River Athletic Conference championship, defeating Bacone 5-2 in the final. This was the only game of the tournament that was close. CF Ridge Gonsoulin went 3-for-4 with an RBI in the final; Drew Middleton got the win.

Oklahoma City swept three games against Wayland Baptist, 5-4, 7-0, and 22-6, and won the Sooner Athletic Conference pennant. 1B Miguel Beltran hit a three-RBI double in the bottom of the seventh to win the first game. Blake Schwartz pitched a complete-game two-hitter in the second game, struck out ten. Beltran hit two home runs in the third game, to bring his season total to 22, tied for most in the NAIA. They finished their regular season with a 8-4 win over Division II Central Oklahoma. RF Chad Carman went 4-for-5 with a home run, a double, and three RBI. The Stars are hosting the SAC tournament, and are scheduled to play Southern Nazarene May 2, Northwestern Oklahoma State on May 3, and #24 Lubbock Christian on May 4.

Faulkner was defeated by #5 Lee 13-0 in the Southern States Athletic Conference tournament, and because the Eagles lost an earlier game in the tournament, 12-9 to Shorter, the loss took the Flames out of the tournament. The loss to Shorter forced the Eagles to deplete their pitching staff, and they had to move position players to the mound for the last two innings of the game against Lee. This was the only meeting of the Eagles and Flames this season.

Azusa Pacific won three of four against Point Loma Nazarene. They lost the first game 6-5 when Matt Winkler balked in a run in the bottom of the 13th inning. Garrett Gooding, who pitched 5 1/3 relief innings for the Sea Lions, allowed four hits, struck out five, got the win. The Cougars won the remaining three games 3-1, 7-3, and 4-2. Jacob Cage got the in in the first game, went six innings, allowed zero earned runs on five hits. RF Brent Warren batted in two of the Cougars' runs, including a bunt single that sent in the winning run. DH Trevor Lothrup hit a grand slam home run to win the second game. 3B Brendan Casey scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the third game; J.C. Aguayo scattered seven hits for the win. The Cougars were upset by Westmont 12-5 in the first round of the Golden State Athletic Conference tournament. 3B David Gabel went 3-for-4 with a home run and a double for the Warriors, batted in four runs. Timothy Leary went eight innings, got the win. This was Westmont's first post-season game in 15 years. The Cougars will play Fresno Pacific on May 2.

Los Sultanes (Sultans) lead the Northern Division of the Mexican League with an 11-3 record, and they won two of three in at series at Oaxaca March 30-April 1. They got a convincing 12-3 win in the first game of the series. In the second game, the Guerreros got two runs in the bottom of the ninth, on a home run by Barbaro Canizares and an RBI single by Erick Rodriguez, to win it 9-8.

RHP Sergio Valenzuela got the start for the Guerreros, and he was lucky to get out of the first inning. The first two batters of the game, CF Sergio Perez and 2B Maxwell Leon, got base hits, then RF Karim Garcia hit a three-run home run. The Guerreros needed a double play and a baserunner caught between third and home to get end the first inning. After this shaky start, Valenzuela settled down and allowed only two hits over the next five innings, and struck out six. He also pitched his way out of a jam in the fifth. The Sultanes loaded the bases with one out on a walk, a hit by Perez, and another walk. Valenzuela proceeded to strike out Garcia, then ended the inning by striking out Michel Abreu, who is batting .449.

Guerreros de Oaxaca 4, Pericos de Puebla 2

Written by Administrator - Saturday, 17 March 2012

The Guerreros (Warriors) de Oaxaca of the Mexican League won their season opener against the Pericos (Parakeets) de Puebla before 6,253 fans at Estadio Eduardo Vasconcelos in Oaxaca City.

Fans of AAA ball in the US would be right at home in Estadio Eduardo Vasconcelos, except for the Field Turf. Beer (Corona and Victoria) costs $1.60, and they even have vendors selling Domino's Pizza. (I had a “hamburguesa”, which came with cheese and avocado; it was pretty good.) There's the usual video screen in center field, and the washrooms are clean.

The dimensions are 410' in center field, and 350' down the left and right field lines. Don't think for a minute, however, that this is a pitchers' ballpark. A minute is about how long it took for the first batter of the game, DH Serafin Rodriguez of Los Pericos, to hit one of the longest home runs I've ever seen over the left-field billboards. Oaxaca City is 5,102' above sea level, and very dry, so think Denver.
