Camarillo Has Mercy on Lodi

Reliever Mike Corral threw three shutout innings, allowing just two hits, and Camarillo defeated Lodi, 11-1, in eight innings on the 10-run mercy rule Sunday in a winner’s bracket game of the American Legion state baseball championships at Yountville, Calif.

Corral, who beat San Jose in relief Saturday, relieved starter Richard Soliz (11-0), who allowed four hits, walked three and struck out three.

Meanwhile, Camarillo’s offense was in full swing. Mike Muller went three for five, and Nick Moody and Charlie Boch each had two hits against Lodi (27-5), the defending state co-champion and tournament favorite.

Camarillo (35-5) will face San Juan Capistrano (28-6)--the only other unbeaten team in the six-team, double-elimination tournament--today at noon. The winner advances to Tuesday’s championship game.
