Baseball in the Southwestern League got very interesting Thursday as two underdogs emerged with victories that changed the standings, the polls, and team expectations early in the season.

TEMECULA - Great Oak traveled to Chaparral and ran into some tough pitching and solid defense. The Pumas limited the Wolfpack to just one run on six hits. The Wolfpack scored their only run in the top of the last inning as Chaparral reliever Christian Bowers was able to fend off the Wolfpack's late attack thanks to his Puma defense.

The Pumas scored twice in the fourth and added another in the sixth when senior Jackson Schlekewey singled in an insurance run.

The Pumas are now 6-4 overall. The win was their first victory in league play. The Wolfpack is 2-1 in league and 9-2 overall. Chaparral will face Murrieta Mesa next in a league matchup on 4/5 and the Wolfpack will be home against Chino Hills this Saturday as they begin tournament play in the Boras Classic. The game will start at 9am.


MURRIETA - Vista Murrieta which was ranked second in the CIF SS Division 2 Polls on Monday suffered it’s third straight league loss at the hands of their cross town rivals.

The Broncos got off to an early start at home in the first inning and took an early 1-0 lead. Vista Murrieta pitching and defense held up until the Nighthawks exploded for seven runs in the fifth inning. The Broncos never recovered.

Murrieta Valley would add two more runs in the seventh to win 9-3 and hand the Broncos their third straight league loss.

Vista Murrieta is winless in league play at 0-3 and 7-2 overall while the Nighthawks improve to 6-3. They are 1-1 in league play.

Saturday will see the Nighthawks play Orange at home at 3:30pm in the Anaheim Lions tournament, while the Broncos will be away to face Bishop Amat at noon in the Boras Classic.
