In Game 2, Solana Beach defeated the California Cage Rats 8-1.
In game 3, the So Cal Shepherds met the same fate, falling to Solana Beach 10-3.
Roy Washburn got the start for the Shepherds. Washburn went four innings, while striking out four and allowed one run that wasn’t earned.
The Shepherds scored all of their runs in the top of the third. The inning started with three consecutive doubles from Sawyer Smith, Corey Treyes, and Jackson Van Ness. Both Treyes and Van Ness drove in runs with their doubles. Emry Jackson would drive in Van Ness with a sacrifice fly to left later in the inning.
The Redbirds broke the game open in the fifth and sixth, with four and five run innings respectively.
