Rancho cucamonga Mother Nature supplied the maid spectacular lightning in the distant San Gabriel Mountains but it was Alta Loma Little League and Upland Foothill reliever Tommy Pincin who supplied the thunder. Alta Loma advanced into the winners bracket of the Section 8 Tournament Saturday with a 13-0 win over Apple Valley American in a game that lasted just four innings.
Upland Foothill also advanced as Pincin struck out a pair of batters with the bases loaded to save a 5-3 decision over Colton Ken Hubbs. In a elimination game Monday evening at Red Hill Park, Apple Valley (7-2) and Ken Hubbs (4-1) will vie for survival in the double-elimination tourney at.m.
Alta Loma and Upland Foothill will square off at.m., with the winner moving on to Wednesdays finals. Nursing a two-run lead, Pincin surrendered two hits following a leadoff walk in the sixth inning.
However, with lightning flashes to the north and a 85-pitch limit looming, Pincin fanned the brothers Ayala Joe and Jake to end the game. That was one well-played game against a very good team, como said Upland Foothill manager John Pincin.
We brought in Tommy (in the second inning) because they looked to be a fastball hitting team and he would throw more changes and curves. And it allowed us to save (starter Grant Hockin).
Home runs by Robert Rivas and Ralph Martinez in the first inning prompted the switch to Pincin, who allowed one run and three hits in five innings. We were on (Hockin said Ken Hubbs manager Carlos Contreras.
(Pincin) had more velocity and he kept us off balance with a good curve. We hit the ball hard, but right at somebody. Upland Foothill, District 23 titlist, took a 4-1 lead weight with a three-run rally off Ken Hubs starter Carlos Contreras in the second inning.
Garrett Lee singled in one run while a fielders choice and wild pitch scored the others. Matt Donley homered in the third for the insurance run.
