Riverside ousts Pampa from playoffs
PECOS, May 22, 2000 -- The team the Pecos Eagles eliminated from the regional
quarterfinals of last year's Class 4A baseball playoffs, El Paso Riverside,
ousted the team that eliminated Pecos this time around, the Pampa Harvesters,
in an area round matchup over the weekend in Hobbs, N.M.
Riverside won a three game playoff from Pampa, taking a 7-1 decision
on Friday, then scoring in the bottom of the seventh inning to win Game
3, 5-4, on Saturday, after Pampa had come back to win the second game,
by an 11-4 score.
Sal Acevedo singled with one out and the bases loaded to score Omar
Ferinza, after a leadoff triple by Joe Villarreal, who was then forced
at home after Pampa walked the bases loaded.
Riverside's Beto Romo outpitched Pampa's Casey Owens to win Game 1,
but the Harvestered tied the series behind lefthander Brent Coffee in Game
2. Pecos had beaten Coffee in their opener the previous weekend, but lost
twice to Owens the following day at Lubbock.
It was the second straight series Riverside won with a run in their
final at-bat. They defeated Frenship in three games at Hobbs the previous
weekend. The Rangers will now face Denton Ryan in the Region I-4A semifinals
this weekend at a site and place to be determined.
