Blazers on 3-game skid
Golden West resumed West Yosemite League play last night. However, not after they lost their last three outings. Last Thursday the Blazer lost to the Dinuba Emperors by a score of 5-1. Entering the last inning the Emperors held a one run lead 2-1. It was then they scored three to put the game out of reach for Golden West. The Blazers were able to get one run across in the bottom half of the final frame. Last night Golden West played the defending WYL champions Redwood Rangers. Final of that game happened after press time. Tomorrow Golden West travels to play the Lemoore Tigers at 4:30 p.m.
Aztecs sneak out win over Cougars
Farmersville hosted McFarland last Friday as both continued East Sierra League play. One run decided the outcome as the Aztecs won 9-8 and remained tied at the top of the standings with Orange Cove. Nathalia Navarro went 2-4 from the plate, scored a run and drove in three more. Last night the Aztecs hosted the Kings Christian Crusaders. Final happened after press time. Friday Farmersville will remain at home against the Wonderful College Prep Academy Wolves beginning at 4 p.m.

In search of their first East Sequoia League win of the season Woodlake took on the Sierra Pacific Golden Bears and lost 13-0. Sierra Pacific got on the board early. In the bottom of the first inning they had scored eight runs. Tonight the Tigers will take another shot at getting that win against the Corcoran Panthers at 4 p.m.
