The Walnut Creek Junior All Stars beat Benicia 11-1 in the Section 1 Championship game today in Marin. It was a great TEAM win with contributions from all, with multiple home runs and a dominating, complete-game performance by pitcher Luke Saunders! Congratulations boys to one of the biggest wins in WCLL history! Good luck in the Northern California Championship Series in Auburn.
It was pretty impressive as the Junior Gold team mercy ruled every team they played in District 4 including the championship game. They moved on to the Sectionals and beat San Rafael on their home field 8-3 yesterday. The boys have really worked hard all season to get to where they are and have been great ambassadors for WCLL throughout.
The Junior team keeps rolling beating a solid Benica team 5-4 in a well-played game (by both teams) led by Cayden Royere who hit 2 HRs, including a walk-off, 2-run blast over the center field fence. Come out and support the boys this Saturday (7/16) at 11AM in San Rafael for the Sectional Championship game against the winner of Fort Bragg and Benica. Everyone associated with WCLL should be proud with how well this team is representing our City - with great play and great sportsmanship!
The Phillies finished the season with an overall record of 27-1
Phillies won 1-0, scoring their lone run in the top of the 6th. Colin Parker pitched 4 innings of 1 hit ball striking out 6, Brady Wright came in and pitched 2 innings of 1 hit ball striking out 5. Zack Lazzarini scored the winning run on a hit by Jon Mendelssohn. Excellent pitching from both sides, great defense and timely batting.
Congratulations Phillies for bring home a Championship to Walnut Creek!
