The Walnut Pinto 8U all-star team had the week off last week because they won the District 2 tournament and got to skip Sections. The time off didn’t hurt the team at all, as they once again swept though a tournament undefeated and took the title. Beating West Covina’s top Pinto team twice and Charter Oak, as well, the 8’s won the West Zone, East Region tournament championship on Tuesday night 10-3 against West Covina Red.
Frankie Gutansky hit a 2-run over-the-fence home run to lead the charge and Giovanni Estrada went 4 for 4 with 3 RBI’s. Pitcher Matthew Cons pitched a solid 3 innings while Isaac Salinas closed out the game with a scoreless 6th inning.
Congratulations to manager David Campa and all the coaches, parents and players for keeping the Pinto Region title with Walnut PONY for the third straight year!
