The So Cal Roundup for Thursday, April 12.


Los Alamitos, ranked No. 2 in the OC and No. 5 in So Cal by So Cal Sidelines, found itself in a life-and-death struggle with Marina of Huntington Beach, ranked No. 14 in the OC, but the Griffins found a way to pull out a 7-6 Sunset League victory over the Vikings in extra innings on Thursday at Los Alamitos High.

Utah Valley-bound Berlyn Carreon drew a bases-loaded walk to force in Cal State Fullerton-bound Daisy Munoz for the the walk-off win in the bottom of the 11th.

Carreon went 3 for 4 with an RBI, Nevada-bound Danielle Lew drilled a three-run homer, Munoz went 3 for 5 with a double, two runs, and an RBI, LSU-bound Karrington Houshmandzadeh went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs and Michigan State-bound Sarah Ladd allowed eight hits, one earned run, five walks and struck out 18 to get the complete game win for Los Alamitos (18-1, 3-0).

“Today was a pitching duel and a team effort all around,” Carreon said. “Sarah Ladd pitched her butt of and didn’t break under pressure, and our defense played solid behind her. I wouldn’t want to have played that game with any other group of girls, we fought hard until the end and I’m proud to be a Griffin.”

Cal State Northridge-commit Shayla Thomas doubled and drove in three runs, Paige Shafer went 4 for 6 with a run and an RBI and Emily Rush allowed 13 hits, two earned runs, eight walks and struck out two in 10-plus innings to take the loss for Marina (9-8, 0-3).

“Marina played a great game today,” Lew said. “It was a huge test of our mental toughness and everyone on the team had a role in pulling out the win.”
