The Golden Bears Brandon Koch scattered two hits over six innings giving up two runs in the third inning as he won his first victory in the 2014 Ford CIF SS Division 2 Baseball Playoffs. Jared Morton came into relief for Temecula Valley in the final frame to earn the save and advance the Golden Bears to round two of the tournament next Tuesday.

The Bears scored a run in the first and another in the third to take a 2-0 lead. Cypress got the two runs back in their half of the third but Koch answered as he stiffened and shut down the Centurions for the rest of the game. Temecula Valley would score the go ahead runs in the fourth and wound up with the 4-2 playoff victory.

David Maldonado doubled, scored twice and drove in a run for the Golden Bears. Jordan Gardner had a hit, scored and had an RBI against the Centurions. AJ Sawyer had two hits and drove in a run while Kyle Plantier singled and doubled in the game.

The Golden Bears will face South Hills next week as the CIF-SS Championship Tournament continues. The Huskies are 21-5-1 this season and were second place finishers in the Sierra league. They beat Oxnard 1-0 Thursday.

Game time is 3:30pm
