9/10s
EL DORADO HILLS — Ponderosa, the team counted out by so many throughout the District 54 9/10s All-Star tournament, battled back from adversity once again but ultimately fell short in a 12-11 heartbreaker to Roseville West at Mitchell Field.
Ponderosa jumped out to an early lead as Logan Schweizer singled, Cole Spangler walked, Casey Tattersall singled and Mitchell Manson blooped a single to score two before Roy Berger brought Tattersall home with a single up the middle.
Roseville West answered with five but Manson’s second two-run single made it 6-5 and Ponderosa overtook Roseville in the fifth to lead 11-6 as Berger scored on a bunt single from Ben Imbsen to tie it, Spangler roped a ball to left-center for another run, Tattersall tripled to right field to score two and Manson drove him in.
Roseville West tied it in the fifth and won it in the sixth.
“I don’t think anyone but us expected our team to win even one game, so to play in four and be a couple of breaks away from beating Roseville West, I couldn’t be prouder,” EDH coach James Schweizer said.

Majors
RANCHO MURIETA Woodcreek’s Greg Rotteveel hit two of his team’s three home runs in a 14-3 win over El Dorado Hills to capture the championship Saturday at Stonehouse Field. Woodcreek pinned EDH with both its losses.
Most of Woodcreek’s hits went to right field. For EDH, Will Crookham hit a leadoff homer, Brayden Tester doubled, Peter Hanson, Anthony Pallari and Hayden Nabors had hits and Nathan Hanson and Crookham had the other RBIs.

Juniors
RANCHO MURIETA — Gold Rush managed just one hit in the lopsided 23-0 defeat Saturday to Woodcreek at Stonehouse Field, ending its tournament.
Mitch McCulloch got the start on the mound for Gold Rush and was followed by David Beal. Gold Rush’s best chance was in the second as Matthew Romero worked a one out walk and Eli Franks followed with a single but a double play ended the threat.
