MARAUDERS COMPLETE SEASON SWEEP OF FALCONS

(from Eastcountysports.com)
MIRA MESA 6, SCRIPPS RANCH 4 – The league-leading Marauders eliminated the Falcons from title consideration after opening the contest with six straight basehits to post five 1st-inning runs and chase the Scripps Ranch starting pitcher from the circle in Tuesday's (May 1) contest at Mira Mesa.
The big inning saw three of the first four batters register doubles, allowing Marauders pitcher ALICIA GARCIA to skate to an easy win on a 6-hitter.
After the Falcons scored once in the 1st, Mira Mesa's LANI VANTA opened with a double, moving to third base on a QUIRISA MAUGA basehit. Then the run production began.
KATIYANA MAUGA followed with an RBI double, another two-base hit by TANI LEASAU was good for two runs and a 3-1 lead, then MERCEDES HUMPHREY and Garcia registered run-scoring basehits.
An inning later, Mira Mesa manufactured its other run on a Quirisa Mauga double, a sacrifice bunt by Katiyana Mauga, then a sacrifice fly to center field by Leasau to give the Marauders catcher a total of three RBI for the afternoon.
The Maugas, Leasau and Garcia all finished with a pair of basehits for Mira Mesa, which elevated to second place in the CIF-San Diego Section rankings this week behind Bonita Vista.
Scripps Ranch is now four games out with four league contests remaining, including one score which was not reported.
