SGV Hustle Tops Elite Field at NYBC Race for the Crown Week 1
SGV Hustle took home the Week 1 championship at the NYBC Race for the Crown on Feb. 15-17 after a convincing 11-0 win over BPA DeMarini in the title game.
Both teams along with 10 others move on to Week 2 to be contested on April 5-6 at VTV Sports Complex in Castaic, California. Got ‘Em Baseball’s three-week event will award the first two automatic bids for the National Youth Baseball Championships at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank, New York.
Oscar Favela led the Hustle’s offensive charge with two home runs, seven RBI and three hits. He homered in the first and second innings as SGV earned the run-rule victory in four innings. The Hustle, out of San Gabriel, California, hit four home runs total.
SGV’s Joshua Sosa pitched a four-inning shutout allowing only three hits and striking out six. His counterpart, BPA’s Jared Jones, lasted just two-thirds of an inning after he allowed five runs on three hits.
BPA DeMarini may have dropped the championship game, but they had an outstanding tournament going 3-0 in pool play and taking down VSA Vipers and Lamorinda Immortals in bracket play.
