The Shetland B Team stayed alive at the Shetland Section 2 Tournament on Saturday by winning one of two games. With scorching temperatures at the park the B Team fought hard against Whittier Royal in the first game of the day by taking an 18-17 lead in the top of the final inning but Whittier came back in the bottom of the inning to win 19-18. The loss forced Walnut to have to play in the losers bracket of the double-elimination tournament and face the Diamond Bar A Team later on Saturday. However, the team was up to the task and scored at least 5 runs every inning to win 30-13. They will now face West Covina Blue Sunday at 1pm.
The Foal team was also playing today at the Shetland-4 Section Tournament in Fullerton but they didn’t have a good day, losing the first game to the host team 15-0 and then to West Covina Blue later in the day. They are now eliminated from that tournament but they do get to play in the Shetland-4 Region Tournament this coming Wednesday.
