Saturday¨s featured games in the second round of the CIF Southern Section softball playoffs
San Dimas 3, Warren 2: Abbie Ambriz had the biggest contribution in the game as her two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth inning proved to be the difference in the Saints¨ second round Division 2 win over the visiting Bears.
Saints pitcher Jordan Hill-Coghill allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out four in picking up the win.
Upland 8, Glendora 2:?For five innings it appeared as if there would be an all-area quarterfinal as the Tartans held a narrow 2-1 lead. However, the visiting Scots got their offense going in the top of the sixth inning, scoring seven runs that would be the difference in Division 2 second-round action.
The big hit was a grand-slam home run by Long Beach State signee Marissa Caballero. ＾We needed to score more runs in the first two innings, two runs is not enough against a team like Upland,￣ Glendora coach Michael Quiroz said.
Upland will take on San Dimas in a quarterfinal game with a date to be determined.
Whittier Christian 10, Highland 1:?Herald standout Brooklyn Carreon had her fingerprints all over this win. She hit a two-run home run in the top of the first inning and limited Highland to one unearned run on one hit and struck out 14 in a second-round Division 3 win. Riley Laygo and Meliana Lopez also hit home runs.
Arcadia 4, Aquinas 3:?The Apaches advanced to the quarterfinals in Division 3 when Tiara Westbrook was walked with the bases loaded that brought in the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Arroyo 15, Calvary Chapel/Downey 1:?The Knights scored 13 runs in the second inning and easily advanced to the Division 6 quarterfinals. Karrissa Blanco had two home runs. Leiana Rodriguez allowed one run on one hit and struck out five in five innings of work to earn the decision.
