Austin Ford's had a great pitching outing today.  Leading the Madera National 12 year
old All-Stars to a second game victory over a strong Turlock National team.  Austin got
a lot of help, with the bats firing all through the team.  Jordan Wilkins had a 2 run
Home Run shot over middle center to widen the gap.  With the 8-3 victory, the 12 year
olds get the next 3 days off and play Thursday against Turlock American, site To Be
Determined.

The 10 year olds weren't as fortunate.  A Turlock National Home Run in the first inning
worked to deflate the energy of the team.  It wasn't until the bottom of the 4th when
the boys started to fight back with a 3 run inning that kept them alive and allowed
them 2 more innings to try to find some of the magic they had in their bats on
Saturday.  Unfortunately the deficit was too big, and Turlock managed to add 4 more
runs in the final 2 innings, beating Madera 15-4.  The 10 year olds will face Los Banos
National at 7pm Tuesday night at home on Field #1 Town & Country Park.  Now in the
elimination bracket.  They must pull it together with no further losses in the district
tournament.  Good Luck Boys!
