Arvin wins by a score of 10-0 in the losers bracket

TAFT-The Taft 9-10 year olds all star team saw their tournament journey end after two games Sunday afternoon with a 10-0 loss to Arvin in the losers bracket of the District 61 Little League tournament on Field No.1 of the George Blanco Complex.

Arvin quietly built their lead with two runs in the first and third innings. In the top of the first Lloyd Tiooco had a run scoring triple while Christian DelaCruz had a run scoring single for the two runs.

In the third, DelaCruz had a double while Kody Mackey had a two run single.

Taft had their chance to score a run in the top of the second inning with a leadoff walk, a stolen base and a wild pitch to get to third but the next two batters were retired in order to end the threat.

Arvin put the game away in the fourth inning by scoring six runs while sending 10 batters to the plate. The game was called after the last run crossed the plate due to the 10 run mercy rule.
