TAOS — It was a big early deficit against a very good ballclub and the White Rock All-Stars wouldn’t be able to overcome it.
Despite going into Tuesday’s semifinal round contest of the state tournament with some good momentum after two come-from-behind wins, the gap was too much to close. Albuquerque’s Eastdale All-Stars got their bats going early, pounding out nine hits in the first two innings and taking advantage of five errors to upend White Rock 14-2 in 3-1/2 innings at Kit Carson Park.
Eastdale, one of the favorites in the Majors state softball tournament, had nine hits in the first two innings, including four for extra bases, while White Rock could only come up with single tallies in the tops of the second and fourth.
The loss dropped White Rock into the loser’s bracket of the tournament. White Rock was scheduled to play at 10 a.m. this morning — results from that game were not available as of press time.
Eastdale had today off and will play for the tournament championship. It needs to win just one more game to claim the title.
White Rock, meanwhile, would’ve had to win today’s game and beat Eastdale in two straight contests to win.
