Saladino Tournament: Day 1 roundup from Jefferson

At Jefferson


King 6, Strawberry Crest 4

Chamberlain 11, Steinbrenner 8

Jefferson 6, Blake 0

Pitchers of the day: Jefferson's Chris Ciocia threw a one-hitter in a 6-0 win against Blake. Ciocia had no walks, no earned runs and only allowed one runner to get as far as second base.

Hitters of the day: The Chamberlain lineup. Trailing 6-3 going into the last at-bat, the Chiefs put together an improbable rally. Chamberlain sent 14 batters to the plate, pounded out nine singles and scored eight runs to come back for an 11-8 victory. R.J. Tapia, Jorge Valiente and Alberto Benejan each had three hits for the Chiefs.

Defensive gems of the day: Chamberlain shortstop Matt Ferianc made a huge play in the fourth inning with one out and two runners on. Ferianc snared a line drive to record one out, then ran to second base to complete the unassisted double play.

Did you know? Playing its inaugural campaign this season, Steinbrenner has won 15 of its first 18 games. Led by former Jesuit coach John Crumbley, Steinbrenner has already secured second place in the upcoming Class 4A, District 9 tournament, which it will host.

Dugout chatter: "Our guys battled hard. The main thing we talked about going into the seventh (inning) was if we were going to roll over or fight. They responded. They put together a good rally and this is a big springboard for us." — Chamberlain coach Damon Ramirez
