El Dorado 5, Calexico 6 — Six errors and two base-running blunders cost the Cougars a chance to win the championship of their 16-team bracket of the San Diego Lions Tournament last week. El Dorado scored four times in the third to lead 5-3 at one point. Zach Terry pitched a seven-hitter in going the distance — only two Calexico runs were earned.
“It wasn’t our best effort, unfortunately those things happen,” Cougar coach Rusty McDonald said. “A very good tournament so to go 4-1 and get to the finals is quite an accomplishment.”
Adam Washabaugh had three hits including a double and Matt Smith doubled twice to lead the El Dorado offense.
El Dorado 5, Malibu 1 — Before taking on Calexico, the Cougars rode Mike Green’s three-hit, eight strikeout effort to the finals. Green helped his own cause with a two out, bases-loaded double in the bottom of the first inning. Smith added a two-run home run in the fifth for El Dorado. Both Smith and Green had two hits.
Oak Ridge 7, Clovis West 5 — The Trojans came on late during their last game of the Boras Classic, scoring five runs in the seventh to force overtime and another two in the eighth to win it. Oak Ridge had trailed 5-0 through six innings. Tanner Ales swung a big bat for Troy, slugging a grand slam and two doubles; Logan Denholm went 3-for-4 with two RBIs; Jon Seim was 2-for-3; and Tyson Solis went 2-for-5. Nolan Boggini picked up the win in relief.
