Santa Fe Springs III

So Cal Independent Fastpitch League held an Alliance Tournament on May 20 – 21, 2017 at Little Park in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Nine teams took part in the event.

After Saturday’s round-robin play, the Buzzards emerged as the No. 1 seed going undefeated. On Sunday, they would reach the championship game to face Those Guys.

Led by the pitching of Lamar Gross, Those Guys would defeat the Buzzards 2 to 1 in seven innings to claim its first Championship as a team for the season.

The Buzzards jumped out strong in the first inning with Javier Fierro’s solo Home Run. That would be the only run Lamar would allow the rest of the game.

Those Guys would not score against Sonny Perkins through the first three innings. Eric Smalling would lead off the fourth inning by reaching third base on an error from the right fielder; he would later advance on a wild pitch scoring the first run for Those Guys. Dominic Marquez would then draw a walk and advance to second on a wild pitch. Lamar would then hit a double scoring Dominic from second base. That would be all the runs Those Guys needed to win the game.
