For one of the few times this season the SRJC offense was a no show and it cost them a Sole Championship in the Big 8 race. Two pitchers for Cosumnes River combined on a one hitter in a 2-0 win. SRJC ends the regular season 28-6-1 and 19-5 in Big 8 play, which is a first place tie with Sierra.
Rancho Cotate comes into this one with a half game lead in the standings at 7-1. Carrillo is at 6-1 in the NBL.
Talk about picking up your teammate.
No. 3 Maria Carrillo was one out away from a frustrating loss that saw them have two runs erased because a runner missed home plate. Then three straight singles capped off a three run seventh inning to give the Pumas a 4-3 run over No. 2 Rancho Cotate and give them first place in the NBL race.
