SOUTHERN SECTION PLAYOFFS
Etiwanda 3, Irvine Woodbridge 0
The Baseline League, which won section titles in Division I in 2001 and 2002, made a strong showing on Friday in the first round of the Southern Section playoffs.
The second- and third-place teams won, including an upset by third-place Etiwanda (19-9) over third-seeded - and defending champion - Irvine Woodbridge, 3-0, at Barber Park.
Rachel Lopez (15-7) pitched a two-hitter - allowing both hits in the second inning - walked one and struck out six for Etiwanda, which won the championship in 2002.
"Before school on game days, my mom [Kelli] gives me a pep talk," Lopez said. "She said, 'Go out there, pitch like you know how to and stay in the zone.'"
Lopez was in the zone, all right, retiring the Warriors (21-10) in order in five of the seven innings. She got the offense she needed in the fourth inning. After an error, back-to-back run-scoring doubles by Jaclyn Carrillo and Irayma Smith made it 2-0, and Nichole Navarette's run-scoring single was the fourth hit in five batters against Woodbridge starter Kelly Cabana (12-3). Etiwanda had nine hits against Woodbridge, which is ranked No. 17 in the Southland and returns all its players next season.
"I was telling them we can't just play our game to win, we have to step it up," said Etiwanda Coach David Masucci, whose team beat El Toro, 1-0, in a wild-card game on Wednesday. "If we keep playing strong defense and get strong pitching, I think we have a chance."
The Baseline League's second-place team, Rancho Cucamonga, defeated Anaheim Esperanza, 6-4, as Vernea Sevillo had three hits and scored three runs, but first-place Upland lost to Los Alamitos, 1-0.
