Monday the Mar Vista High School Mariners Baseball Team Beats South Gate Rams 11 - 1 in the first game of the LIONS Tournament

Mariner Bats explode for a 6 run first inning to start off the LIONS Tournament. Cruise to an 11 to 1 victory over the Southgate Rams from LA. Jr. shortstop Eli Burns led off the game for the Mariners with a single. He went 3 for 3 with a triple during the rest of the game. He quickly stole second base. Sr. left fielder Mike Wilson bunted Eli to third base and was safe at first when the Ram pitcher thought he caught the bunt in the air and turned and threw to second base to double up E. Burns. The umpires said the ball was trapped and not caught. Jr. DH Eddie King hit a long fly ball to center scoring Burns. Jr. catcher Jake Borst with his second triple of the year scoring Wilson. Sr.1st baseman Gabe Preciado followed with single scoring Borst. Gabe stole 2nd base and scored on Sr. 3rd baseman Zach Burns’ double. SR. center fielder Roman Marquez and Soph. Zach Hastings walked and brought up the younger Burns Brother again and he laced another single scoring his older brother and Marquez. Hastings was thrown out trying to go from 1st to 3rd to end the inning. The Mariner defense was at its best today helping starting pitcher Sr. Jacob Hinojosa out of a couple bases loaded jams by turning 2 nice double plays. Jr. Reliever Daniel Ortiz ended the game by getting a Ram batter to hit into an inning ending double play to end the game. Hinojosa picked up his first win of the season. Hino struck out 6 Ram batters but also walked 6. The Mariners are 1 and 0 in the LIONS tournament but they travel to San Dieguito to face a tough Mustang club. The Mariners have won their last 4 games. Here’s hoping they can make it 5 in a row. Hope to see you up in San Dieguito
