Tigers shut out in final two games of season
In past seasons the final series between the Tigers and Golden Bears had East Sequoia League title implications. This year was a different story. Woodlake failed to score in either of their final two games. On Friday they lost 13-0. That result followed a 18-0 loss which occurred last Wednesday.
Titans shut out Aztecs
Farmersville took the role of spoiler during their final regular season game against Orange Cove last Thursday night. The eight runs which the Titans scored in the top of the first meant the Aztecs would be walking away with the 14-0 loss. In the game Farmersville was only able to produce three hits which came from all different batters.
