Steven San Miguel (2 for 4, two runs, 3 RBI, HR) capped a riveting five run rally in the top 6th with a three run bomb that went beyond the right field fence, and band room, to lift Rosemead to a 9-4 victory over Gabrielino in the Mission Valley League opener for both teams.
San Miguel was one of five Panthers chipping off multiple hits, as Jacob Garcia, Dominic Salas, and Matthew Campos all went 2 for 4. Armani Garcia led the way going 3 for 5 with two runs, 2 RBIs, and two doubles.
Brandon Herrera started for Mead on the hill and delivered a quality outing with a shutout going into the fourth, but couldn’t make it out of the fifth as Gabrielino rallied to tie the score 4-4 with three in the frame.
Anthony Herrera tossed the final seven outs (2 1/3s innings) scoreless, issuing three hits, three strikeouts, and one walk to earn the win in relief. Herrera also scored a run at bat and stole two bases.
Cole Hoffman led the Eagles at the plate, going 3 for 3 with two runs and a triple. Danny Meza Richard Lopez
