Walnutâ€™s Pony-13 All-Star team became the first of our all-star teams to play and win its first sanction tournament game on Saturday. They defeated the a strong team from West Covina, 12 to 6 at the Section 2 Tournament held at Sierra Madre PONY.
Walnut started strong when leadoff hitter Dylan Zavala doubled to start the game and was brought home by a hard hit single by Joey Robles. The rest of the lineup brought their hitting sticks too and built a 11 to 1 lead behind the strong pitching of Michael Moy.
With the win, Walnut will play Azusa on Sunday at 4:30pm but they have already qualified out of the 4 team section to next weekâ€™s region in Glendora.
