PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – The Palm Springs POWER sit alone in first place after one week of exciting SCCBL action.
Palm Springs topped the Arroyo Seco Sentinels twice over the weekend and lead the league with a 2-0 record. Jordan Dreibelbis threw a complete game on Saturday night while Brock Hale’s inside-the-park home run proved to be the difference on offense.
In game two, Ryan Mota’s two-run single in the 8th inning was all the POWER needed to complete the two-game sweep. John Mauldin stole home in that game to provide the final margin, 3-0.
The SoCal Bombers and Inland Valley Bucs aren’t far behind with .667 winning percentages and the SD Force are at .600.
Things aren’t going as well as the Arroyo Seco Sentinels would like. Head Coach Justin Toegas’ squad is just 1-4 in SCCBL and 3-7 overall on the young year, but they have plenty of time to right the ship in weeks to come.
The SCCBL standings might look a little different after next week’s action.
Palm Springs and SoCal meet for a two-game set and the Bombers also play the Inland Valley Bucs. The POWER and SD Force meet four times next week and the Sentinels meet the Bucs twice.
The POWER have won the SCCBL title five times in a row and are in good shape for their sixth title in as many years.
