Moreno Valley High School
Moreno Valley Vikings found themselves in tough environment on the Road in LA trailing 3-0 in the 4th inning when lighting stuck once again. With Bases loaded and 1 out Eric Carmona hit a sacrifice fly to deep center field cutting st. Bernard’s lead to
3-1. Now 2 runners on and 2 outs and the Vikings running out of chances Junior Anthony Ruff turned on a 2-1 fastball and drove it over the left field wall for a 3 run homerun giving the Vikings a 4-3 lead. The Vikings would add 2 more runs in in the 6th and again in the 7th extending their lead to 8-3. Freshman Davis Dejesus pitched a solid 4 and 2/3 innings before giving way to sophomore Rashad “shawdy” Ruff to close it out. Noah, Flores, and Alfredo Samarripa, both contributed with key doubles late in the game and senior Pedro Cheyab also drove in an insurance run helping put the game out of reach. The Vikings are now set to take on Malibu high school in the CIF semi-finals this Tuesday May 30th at Moreno Valley high school. Come out and support your Vikings as they continue their quest for a CIF Championship!
