Local senior standouts chosen to play baseball for Riverside County All Star team – San Manuel Field plays host to the 2014 IEBCA All Star Game

For the fourth straight year the Inland Empire 66ers partnered with the Inland Empire Baseball Coaches Association to host the IEBCA All Star Game earlier this week at San Manuel Stadium. The game featured the top talents from Riverside and San Bernardino Counties including 11 players from Temecula Valley.

Eli Lingos and Brad Wegman represented from Great Oak, Austin Hovivian of Hemet, Michael Demarco from Heritage, Brett Pendleton of Heritage, Chris Jasien from Linfield Christian, Bryce Macy of Paloma Valley, Nick Ray from San Jacinto, Sean Trimble from Temescal Canyon and Coltin Gerhart and J.T. McLellan of Vista Murrieta were all chosen to play for the Riverside County All Stars and don their high school uniforms for one last game before heading off to college.

The San Bernardino All Stars jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and would hold the Riverside Country All Stars scoreless through 6, but not before breaking it wide open with a 10-run sixth inning. Ralph Mohammed (Grand Terrace) started the surge with a bases-clearing double to the warning track in left and then four batters later Casey Sheehan (Redlands East Valley) followed with a bases-clearing triple.

Sheehan and teammate Zach Kirtley combined for five RBI’s, Fontana’s Gerardo Torreblanca went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs, and San Bernardino Cajon pitchers Matt Acosta and Noah Jones each threw a perfect inning of relief. Rialto Carter pitchers John Landazuri and Jesse Gonzalez also threw a perfect inning of relief as well.

Riverside didn’t get its first hit until Eli Lingos (Great Oak) doubled in the sixth. Daniel Ebina (Riverside La Sierra) hit a bases-loaded double later in the frame, but that was all Riverside’s offense could manage.

Chris Mathewson, who has been one of the top baseball players in the Inland Empire the past few seasons earned the MVP honors by pitching two scoreless innings for the win and reached base twice as the San Bernardino All-Stars rolled to a 15-3 victory over the Riverside County All Stars.

Mathewson, who was drafted by the Texas Rangers last week in the 2014 First Year Players Draft, didn’t have a lot of help in the rout as San Bernardino pounded out 14 hits and held Riverside to just three overall.

Adam Burciaga (Indio) suffered the loss, allowing 10 runs on five hits, five walks and one hit batter.

Tommy Pincin (Upland), the 26th-round pick of the New York Mets in last week’s Major League Baseball First Year Play Draft, did not play. Rainier Aguilar (San Gorgonio) started at catcher for San Bernardino.

Also absent were Chino Hills stars Aaron Dominguez and Cody Sporrer, and Tommy Anderson (Oak Hills), the Mojave River League’s Player of the Year.
