LINCOLN — The Ponderosa Patriots’ U11 youth travel baseball travel team brought home its first championship after an exciting extra-inning 7-6 win over the Lincoln Tribe at Foskett Park in Lincoln — the winning run by Ryan Gines who scored on a wild pitch.

Based out of Cameron Park/Shingle Springs, the Patriot’s trailed 5-0 but battled back to tie in the fifth inning. Denied in the sixth when Lincoln turned a triple play, Ponderosa rolled out the defense in extra innings when Koby Maitland caught a deep fly and threw a one-hop throw to catcher Casey Tattersall who tagged a runner attempting to score from third.

By rule, teams start an extra inning with a runner at second base. Gines, Tattersall, Cole Spangler and Justin Reid all made infield plays to keep the Tribe off the board. In the Patriot’s turn, Gines was at second base as Logan Schweizer worked a walk and the next Pats’ hitter was intentionaly walked to load the bases. With Gines at third base and Roy Berger in the box, Gines sprinted home on the wild pitch.

Berger, Schweizer and Tattersall combined on the mound to keep the Tribe hitters in check. Ponderosa also defeated Playball Sports Academy from Yuba City, Future Prospects from San Rafael and Sonoma Stack to reach the finals.

This is the first championship for the Patriot’s 11U team, coached by Greg Giant and James Schweizer. Ponderosa also has a U10 team and two teams in development, U9 and U13s.
