The Winters High School varsity baseball team played in a Northern Section, California Interscholastic Federation, Division IV – VII Championship playoff game on their home field. After a bye in the first round of playoffs the Warriors took the field with purpose, definitely wanting a win to move on to the Sectional Championship game. The Warriors took on the Yreka High School Miners, who played a good game defensively, but the Miners never found a solution to a well pitched game that resulted in a shutout. The game was pitched by Daniel Carrion, who had nine strikeouts and a runner picked off at first. The Warriors started the game with an offensive lead that would make it difficult for the Miners to close the gap. The Warriors had two runners on base and Gary Molina hit a home run. The first inning ended with three runs for the Warriors. In the fourth Ruben Valencia hit a double, knocking in two men on base. Molina slammed a hit out to the fence in centerfield when the Miners caught a sacrifice fly ball letting Molina’s hit result in a RBI. In the bottom of sixth inning Molina came up to bat. After slugging the ball to deep centerfield and the home run, the Miners Intentionally walked Molina. The next hit of the game would let Carrion cross the plate. The Warriors with eight hits and five walks the Warriors ended the game with a score of 10-0. The Warriors will move on to the NSCIF Championships where they will play Colusa one more time.
