The opening Little League game for the Cambria Reds on Saturday, April 5, did not turn out as coach Gary Stephenson had hoped, as his team was shaded 8-6 by the Morro Bay Brewers.
The Brewers got up 6-0 and, while the Reds chipped away to make it 6-2 then 8-3, “we just ran out of time,” Stephenson explained.
Pitchers Chase Voltz and David May did a “good job” holding the Brewers to just eight runs, and Emmany Plasencia ripped a triple late in the game but it wasn’t enough, Stephenson added.
On Tuesday, April 8, the Reds nipped the Los Osos Blue team 11-10; Magnus Marthaler knocked in David May with the walk-off hit.
The next home game for the Reds is Saturday, April 12, at Leffingwell Field against the Los OsOsos White team at 10 a.m.
