Yuba City, Oak Ridge win Surewest tournament baseball titles

By Bill Paterson

Top-ranked Yuba City and No. 7 Oak Ridge won their respective divisions in the Surewest-Woodcreek Varsity Invitational last Tuesday, but out-of-towners won championships in two of Sacramento's longest running spring-break baseball tournaments.

Byrce Thornton and Cody Kent combined to pitch Yuba City past Ponderosa 5-4 in the Bracket 1-2 Woodcreek title game. Blake Parks had a double and two runs batted in and Quentin Rocha two hits and an RBI for the Honkers.

Curtis Cantaloube scattered four hits and struck out six and Austin Ales went 2-for-3 with a double and drove in two runs in Oak Ridge's 3-1 win over Bella Vista in the Bracket 3-4 title game at Rosemont High School.

For the second season in a row, Vintage of Napa won the Lank Park Easter Tournament, beating Galt 8-6 in Wednesday's championship game. Vintage went 4-0 in the tournament.

Behind tourney MVP Alex Crosby's 3-for-3 performance, Will C. Wood of Vacaville beat Cordova 10-2 in Thursday's Cordova Easter Tournament championship game. Crosby doubled, tripled and had an RBI and pitched the seventh inning in relief.
