The Penn Valley Intermediate All-Stars not only battled the 108 degree heat. They had to battle a team from Antelope which had scored 33 and 24 runs in their district semi-final and final's contest. Starting pitcher for the Penn Valley team Aaron Sassville slowed Antelope but their bats and long ball were just too much for PV as they fell 16-7 in the seven inning contest in the Section 6 semi-final game.

It was a battle of the home run. Antelope delivered 3 in the game including back to back homers in the bottom of the second which extended their lead to 11-1 and it looked as if the game was destined to go by way of the mercy rule. PV's one run was scored by Dean Hopper who made it aboard with two outs in the top of the 2nd on a 4 pitch walk, he moved to second on a double to right by Josiah Cegar and scored on a single by Matt Hayward.

The Penn Valley All-Stars battled in the 4th inning to cut the lead to 12-7 on a home run by Sassville along with a few hits (sorry boys I was into the game too much to remember what happened) and a few errors by Antelope. Sam Hopper also hit a home run later in the game.

Pitchers for PV in the loss; Sassville, Sam Hopper, Ryan Schmittel, Wyatt Hook and James Nolan.

The Penn Valley Intermediate All-Stars are back on the diamond at El Dorado Hills for a 5 p.m. contest today where they will take on the loser of the 1 p.m. game which is between Antelope and EDH.
