Exeter loses to Selma
The Monarchs lost their second extra inning game in three outings on Friday, March 22, when they fell to the Bears 2-0 in nine. It was a scoreless barn burner up to that final inning when Selma scored two in the top. Exeter’s Jaykob Acosta was on the losing end once again after he surrendered the two runs. He did have 11 strikeouts in the game, but with Exeter only getting four hits, it just prolonged the outcome. Sal Briones had the only multi-base hit with a double. Exeter has fallen to third place. They took on the Hanford West Huskies on Tuesday night. Results were reached after press time. Exeter will next play the Kingsburg Vikings at home on Friday, March 29 at 7 p.m.

Farmersville puts lumber to Crusaders
The Aztecs were in the middle of a four-game losing streak when they were outscored 20-5. They almost got all that back in a single game by defeating the Kings Christian Crusaders 14-1.
