Temecula Valley and Vista Murrieta faced off Saturday in the Boras Classic Southern Championship Game at Mater Dei. The Classic is considered one of the premier High School baseball tournaments in the western United States, and it became an all Southwestern League event this year.

The Golden Bears captured the South Division championship game of the Boras Classic at Mater Dei defeating Vista Murrieta 4-1. Temecula’s starting pitcher Isaiah Morten, struck out five, gave up five hits and allowed just one run in six innings to pick up the victory. It was the senior’s second start of his high school career. Brother Jared Morton pitched the seventh and picked up the save.

"I was so impressed with Isaiah," said Temecula Valley Coach Tony Nobiensky. "For him to do that on this stage against that team , a good hitting, disciplined team. (It) was just outstanding."

The Golden Bears jumped out to an early lead scoring a run in the first inning as AJ Sawyer drove in the game’s first run on a sacrifice fly. Temecula Valley would add two in the third and an insurance run in the seventh. Kyle Plantier, Drew Seelman and Nick Juhl all went 2 for 3 for TVH. Sawyer ended up with two RBIs.

Hunter Tidwell had three hits for Vista Murrieta and Brandon Nelson was handed the loss. The Broncos let the game slip away as they failed to bring home the runs. They stranded nine base runners in the game, four in scoring position. Their only run came on a Golden Bear error in the fourth.

The Golden Bears improved to 12-1 and Vista Murrieta fell to 10-4. All four Bronco losses have some at the hands of its Southwestern league rivals, including two to Temecula Valley.

Senior TVHS pitcher Burke Mitchell was named the tournament MVP. He was instrumental in for helping get the Golden Bears into the Championship.

The Boras Classic is a 32-team invitational that is divided into two regions of 16. Some of California’s best high school baseball teams compete in the event. Temecula Valley will now face the winners of the Northern California bracket in a "state championship" game on May 3, 2014. The game will be played at the University of the Pacific in Stockton.

The Golden Bears travel to Great Oak to take on the Wolfpack. The Broncos next face the Rams at home. Both games are scheduled for Tuesday April 8th at 3:30pm.
