Tri-Valley baseball minors win spot in final four

Carter Cox (6) bats against Banning on Wednesday afternoon.

YUCCA VALLEY — The Tri-Valley Little League minor division all-star baseball team is heading into the final round of competition for the district championship this weekend after they took on Banning on Wednesday night and won.

“It was a great game,” said head coach Gary Bradshaw. “We won with a final score of 21-12.”

The boys played Banning at Luckie Park in Twentynine Palms. Tri-Valley came into the game undefeated and the win secured them a spot in the next round of a double-elimination tournament that will determine the district champions.

Bradshaw said the Tri-Valley kids played well together and their teamwork helped them secure the win.

“All 12 of our players helped out our pitcher by making plays throughout the game,” he said.

The game MVP was Michael Segura, the pitcher.

“Baseball really starts and end with our pitcher,” Bradshaw said. “Michael led our game.”

The team will return to Luckie Park at 6 p.m. Sunday to play Yucaipa for their next round of competition. With four teams left in the tournament, they will have two chances to make it to the district-championship-deciding game.
