Sophomore Ayden Tinsley threw an efficient three-hitter and got all the run support he needed in the fourth inning of Weston Ranch’s 2-0 win over visiting Edison on Monday.

The Cougars (4-6) had dropped four of their previous five contests, including a frustrating 8-7 defeat to Edison (2-7-1) last week.

“I’m proud of the way Ayden competed and the way he decided to lock in,” Weston Ranch coach David Hager said. “He did not let Edison get any ground on him.”

The defense helped with an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play. Tinsley got through the full seven innings with just 81 pitches.

“For six innings we played pretty well defensively.” Hager said. “Much improved from the past few weeks.”

In the bottom of the fourth, Zyale Brown-Sanger and Steven Bustamante led off with back-to-back singles and later plated the lone runs. After Andrew Montano walked to load the bases, Brown-Sanger was driven in by Christian Cortes’ fielder’s choice. Bustamante then scored from third after Alejandro Piedra laid down a two-out bunt.

Cortes and Brown-Sanger both finished 2-for-3.

Weston Ranch welcomes Sonora on Wednesday in its final non-league tune-up. The Cougars begin Valley Oak League play next week with a two-game set against Manteca.



Lathrop 3, Los Banos 0

Tory Sumbler amassed nine kills, three aces, four solo blocks, 25 assists and six digs as Lathrop tallied a 25-14, 25-14, 25-11 sweep on the road.

The Spartans are now 3-0 in the Western Athletic Conference and 8-0 overall.

Christian Green clobbered 12 kills and two aces. Arman John added six kills, three aces and five digs. Diego Sanchez led the back row with 13 digs.



Millennium 19, Lathrop 3

The visiting Spartans (1-4) were without multiple key players in Tracy and gave up 10 runs in the bottom of the first inning.

They answered in the third when Shelby Aquino blasted an inside-the-park homer for all of their runs. Kylie Orsua contributed a single.

“Playing shorthanded is never an easy task, but I’m proud of the girls for stepping up and playing positions they may not be as familiar with and doing the best they could,” Lathrop coach Stephanie Maestretti said. “We need to figure out how to be more patient at the plate and truly get pitches we should hit, rather than swinging at anything that gets thrown.”



Aiello Invitational

Ripon placed fourth out of 18 teams at Discovery Bay Country Club, scoring a 411.
