July 7, 2017 (*Recaps over the next few days will be more abridged than usual as the CCL public information service prepares for the all-star game. -PB) Healdsburg, CA Jamey Smart (LMU) hit a two-out, bases loaded three-run double and Cameron Warren (Texas Tech) drove Smart in with an RBI-double of his own to cap a six-run fourth inning the Healdsburg Prune Packers rode to an 8-4 victory over the Neptune Beach Pearl tonight at Recreation Park. The win over their North Division foe moved the Packers into first place in the CCL standings as these two teams continue to swap places in that spot almost on a daily basis. Chase Gardner started on the mound for Healdsburg and picked up the win with five strikeouts over five and two-thirds innings despite allowing a pair of runs in both the fifth and sixth innings, the latter coming on a two-out, two-run home run by Lucas Halstead (Pacific), his fifth in league play this summer. Smart (two doubles and a single) finished with a game-high three hits and Dane Tofteland (Indiana St) doubled and singled to lead the Healdsburg attack. Halstead, who also doubled and scored in the fifth inning, was the only Neptune Beach player to finish with more than one hit.

Sebby, who also hit an RBI-single in the seventh inning, finished with a game-high two RBI and two hits, while Caleb Kilian (Texas Tech), Blair Lewis, Parker Joe Robinson (Texas) and Will Tomlinson (Brown) combined for 10 strikeouts, Lewis leading the way with six over three and a third innings of work, on the mound to lead the Riptide. Denzl Chapman (San Diego St), Javier Garcia (Compton JC) and Dailan Lee (UC Irvine) each had two hits to lead the Barons. Click here for recaps of this game Santa Barbara, CA The Arroyo Seco Saints’ Corey Harrel (Graceland) hit a lead-off home run in the top of the ninth inning to tie the game but the drama was short-lived as David Hamilton (Texas), pinch-running for Zach Humphreys (Texas Tech), who led off the bottom of the ninth with a walk, advanced to second on a sacrifice and then scored the game-winning run on two wild pitches to give the Santa Barbara Foresters a 2-1 walk-off win. Scoreless through seven innings, the story of the game was the pitching of Tanner Lawson (St. Edwards). Greeted early with a pair of singles to the first two hitters he faced, Lawson proceeded to strikeout the next six, and finished with nine over five innings of work. Santa Barbara’s relievers would continue the strikeout trend as Kyle Smith (Cal Poly) recorded three in an inning and two thirds, Jake Eissler (TCU), had three in one and a third innings, and John McMillon (Texas Tech) added two in the ninth to compile 17 in the game as a staff. Ryan Cash (Oklahoma St) drove in the only other run of the game with a two-out single in the seventh inning to give Santa Barbara a 1-0 lead. Gabe Chavez (Rio Hondo JC) had three singles for Arroyo Seco to finish with a game-high three hits and Gunnar Friend (Avila) threw six and a third innings of one-run ball to lead the Saints.
