EL DORADO HILLS — If the El Dorado Hills Junior All Stars baseball team was going to stay alive to play for the District 54 9/10 All Star Tournament title, it had to beat Roseville West at Mitchell Park last Sunday.

El Dorado Hills’ fast start to the game wasn’t enough as Roseville West rallied to post a 3-2 win that ended El Dorado Hills’ season in the loser’s bracket of the double-elimination tournament.

With two outs in the first inning, El Dorado Hills’ Sam Manfredi and Brady Routon hit back-to-back singles to place runners at first and second. Braden Frank then smoked a double near the center field fence to drive in Manfredi and Routon for a 2-0 lead.

Roseville West trimmed El Dorado Hills’ lead to 2-1 in its turn to bat on a walk and a single that drove in a run.

Both teams’ offense were silent in the second inning but made some noise in the third. Manfredi was hit by a pitch and moved to second on Frank’s single to put runners at second and first, respectively, with two outs. But a fielder’s choice ended the frame when Frank was forced out at second.

In the bottom of the inning, Roseville West tied the game at 2-all on a single and error. Roseville West scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fourth on a leadoff double followed by a single.

El Dorado Hills battled back in the top of the fifth inning. Manfredi walked and Routon singled down the third base line but with two outs, a strikeout ended the frame.

Bryan Steurer reached first base on an error in the top of the sixth inning for El Dorado Hills with one out before a fly ball to Roseville West’s third baseman and strikeout ended the game and season for the local squad.

Steurer walked in the second inning but the next three El Dorado Hills batters flew and struck out. Frank was 2-for-2 in the game with an RBI.
