By: Staff Report
Rocklin Little League’s Senior all-stars topped Sunrise 20-1 at American River College on Tuesday night, putting them into the Section 4 title championship against Maidu. Rocklin and Maidu play tonight and Rocklin would have to beat the unbeaten Maidu squad twice in order to win the championship. The second game, if necessary, would be played Thursday night at American River College. “This was an all-around great game by everyone,” said Rocklin manager Barry Moller about Tuesday’s win over Sunrise, signaling out his catcher Shaun Braly for his strong play throughout the tournament. Rocklin opened the tournament with a loss to Rio Linda on Saturday (7-6) before bouncing back to beat Tahoe Tallac on Sunday (13-3) and Rio Linda on Monday (11-1). Rocklin’s Brian Hosang was the winning pitcher against Tahoe Tallac while teammate Carson Wittwer shut down Rio Linda in Monday’s game.
