Evans hits two homers in loss
Alexis Evans hit a pair of home runs and drove in five, but it wasn't enough as Cibola fell 16-6 at Tucson-Sunnyside on Wednesday.
Bethany Olea added two doubles and an RBI. But the Sunnyside bats proved too much for the Raiders, who played at Yuma High Tuesday and won 5-0.
“(Sunnyside) hit the ball very well,” Cibola coach Shelly Baumann said.
Holtville holds off Yuma High
Yuma High got the tying run to third base in the bottom of the seventh but no closer in a 6-5 home loss to Holtville on Wednesday.
The Criminals led 4-0 until a three-error fourth inning tied the game. Britteny Ramos, Amanda Martinez and Lezlie Morris had two hits each for the Criminals. Ramos hit a monster shot to center field in the sixth inning, but the Holtville fielder caught the ball over the fence for the out.
