HS Baseball: Pumas can't fend off Husky attack, place 2nd in Chino Tournament

Chino Hills hammers out 24 hits in 21-4 route

Earlier this week the visiting Chaparral Puma's lost a non league Championship Tournament game to the Chino Hills Huskies baseball team, 21-4.

Chino Hills (7-0 overall) pounded out 24 hits – including 10 extra-base hits – and had eight players with multiple hits as Chaparral (5-2) used four pitchers who combined to throw over 175 pitches.

Marc Sauceda got the Pumas off to a great start in the top of the first inning with a two-run triple off Chino Hills left-hander, Bailey Falter. A throwing error by Israel Fuentes, Chino Hills shortstop, allowed Sauceda to score and Chaparral took an early 3-0 lead.

Chaparral senior Jackson Schleckeway, a 170-pound 6 -4 right-hander, entered the game with a 2-0 record with 12 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings so far this this season, but came out a bit rocky. Against Chino Hills he faced 11 batters in a six-run first inning and left the game after the 2nd inning after throwing just 54 pitches and getting six outs.

"I know I was leaving the ball up a little bit," Schleckeway said. "Theyre a good hitting team and I can only learn from this game and use it in my next start."

Schleckeway gave up nine runs on 10 hits in just two innings as Chaparral lost, 21-4, to Chino Hills in the championship game of the 24th annual Chino High School baseball tournament.

"He had two great outings before this one, but today Chino Hills was just hitting all three of his pitches," Chaparral coach Larry Wells said. "Sometimes that is just the way it goes and it's hard to find room to breathe when your facing a lineup as deep as the Huskies."

The Huskies (7-0) will now prepare for their game against South Hills (West Covina, CA). The Huskies go into the Sierra game with a 4-1 record. In their last game, South Hills overcame Temple City (Temple City, CA), 10-3, in a non-league game.

The Pumas (5-2) will now prepare to open up League play at the Diamond in Lake Elsinore vs. Murrieta Mesa on Friday 3/21 at 7:30 p.m. The Rams go into the Southwestern game with a 3-2 record. In their last game, Murrieta Mesa was overwhelmed by Carlsbad, 4-2, in a non-league contest.
