EAGLES SWEEP KILLIAN TO CELEBRATE PI DAY
Southwest scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie and defeat Killian, 5-2, for a sweep of the doubleheader. The Eagles (5-3) won the opener, 6-1. In the first game, German Ferrer and J.J. Cominsky drew walks to start the top of the first. Mario Trivella bunted them over before Erick Juvier drove them both in with a single to right-center. Those would be the only runs starter Kyle Araujo would need as he limited the Cougars to just two singles in five shutout innings. Lucas Elissalt preserved the win, hurling the final two frames. Juvier drove in another run in the fifth with a single and Chris Perez had a two-run single in the final inning. In game two, Killian jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first. The Eagles tied it up in the third when singles by Aiden Vigoa and Cominsky and a walk to Trivella loaded the bases. Javi Hernandez delivered a clutch, 2-out, single to plate two runs. Southwest scored the winning runs in the home half of the sixth. With one out, singles by Trivella and Hernandez, along with a walk to Juvier, loaded the bases. Pinch-hitter Elissalt hit a grounder to short, but the second baseman mishandled the throw, allowing the go-ahead run to score. Matt Ferrer followed with a 2-run single and, moments later, the 2-hour time-limit was reached. Ish Espinoza pitched the first four innings and Alex Lage and Lander Vasco each threw a scoreless inning of relief with Vasco getting credit for the win. With the season now being interrupted by the coronavirus, it is unknown when, or even if, the season will resume. SWEaglesSports.com will provide updates once more information is known.
