Town Hall Youth Sports Coordinator Cindy Luna gave this report for Youth Baseball last week.

At the end of the T-ball game between the Idyllwild Vacation Rentals Angels and Idylwild Shell Pirates last week, everyone demonstrates good sportsmanship with hand slaps and fist bumps.

T-Ball League:

Isaiah McCaughey of Idyllwild Vacation Rentals Angels, slugged the baseball into a scrum on Tuesday, May 9, and when it emerged, found himself with an ending-inning grand slam. Dialing in her enthusiasm and energy, Idyllwild Shell Pirates’ Danielle Rodriguez peppered her throws around the infield, sending a message to the opponents that they need to step on the gas.

In addition to being stylish in her pink shoes, Hannah Jaug of the Pirates, shot a solid single up the middle in the first inning of the Friday, May 12, game, a bunt in the second and then advanced with her speedy tennies to every base. Idyllwild Vacation Rentals Angels’ Ethan Castro continues to impress his fans by extending his hitting streak to four games. Stay tuned!

Minor League:

May 9 the Robin Oates Real Estate Padres swept the Sandlin and Son Dodgers 2-0 with some exceptional hitting and bang-bang plays to first base by Padres third-baseman Indigo Dagnall. Dodgers’ Jasmine Piche helped her team by smacking an infield groundball and advancing the runner to third base.

Major League:

Christian Gonzalez of the Lawrence Equipment Padres pitched his first complete-game shutout Friday, May 12, beating the Ridgeline Roofing Dodgers 4-0. A pitcher relies on his catcher to stop and frame the pitches and in this case, battery-mate Cole Kenyon came up big in his team’s success. The biggest hit of the game, however, sailed off the bat of Dodgers’ Finn Carpenter and landed in the gap of center field, resulting in a two-bagger.

Correction: In last week’s report, the T-ball sponsors’ names were flipped. They are correct this week: Idyllwild Shell Pirates and Idyllwild Vacation Rentals Angels.
