Cross Town Classic CHAMPS!


 

CONGRATS FALL!

Congratulations to the Majors Indians, who topped the FN Giants 13-3 to win the Major divsion cross town championship.  Matt Sliger delivered five innings of shutout ball, allowing only two hits, and delivering 13 strikeouts.  Jackson Inclan delivered a solo blast in the second inning, and Austin Escamilla added three RBI's on three hits to fuel the 13 run offensive performance. 

AND

Congratulations to the AAA Royals, who defeated the FN Braves to claim the AAA division Cross Town Title! The Royals were down by one run after two innings when Johnny Koett delivered a two run triple, and later score on a wild pitch to put the Royals up 3-1.  Each team followed with four runs in the fourth inning, and then the Royals added three insurance runs in the 5th en route to the 10-5 victory.

Great job!

Come out and support FALL in the Cross Town Classic!

It’s time for the annual mid-season, cross town classic, between Folsom American and Folsom National.  Each year our Majors and AAA divisions take a break from regular season play and engage in a mini cross town tournament.   Games start on Tuesday the 19th, with the top two Majors and AAA teams (based on current standings) squaring off for the right to play in a championship match on Thursday, the 21st.  On Wednesday, the third and fourth place teams from each league meet in friendly exhibition matches (but still with some serious bragging rights on the line).   The full schedule is listed below.  Note that the games at Sheldon start at 5:30 due to lights – the others start at 6:30.

04/20/16 Update

The Wednesday night friendly matches went very well.  Both FALL Majors teams prevailed.  The Angels jumped out to a 12-0 lead after one and never looked back, cruising to a 17-4 victory over the FNL Cardinals, despite two home runs by the Cardinals Tyson DeWall.  The Athletics also notched a 12-2 victory over the FNL Pirates. 

In AAA, the FA Rays came out on top of a back and forth affair with the FN Cubs.  The teams took a 1-1 tie into the third inning when the Cubs pulled ahead by two to make it 3-1.  The Rays answered with three of their own to notch a 4-3 victory.  In the match up at Sheldon, the FN Cardinals protected their home field with a 12-11 victory over the FA Orioles.
