Alhambra Handles Hawaiians

Good Friends. Kalani Falcon HC Shannon Hirai and Alhambra HC Steve Gewecke

(Alhambra)- The Alhambra Moors scored a pair of victories over the Kalani Falcons Tuesday afternoon with an 11-3 win in the opener and a 12-2 W in the nightcap.

“I feel a lot better about our offense right now,” said Moors HC Steve Gewecke. “We took some good swings today, especially in the second game.”

In the second game Alhambra’s Vai Peko went two for three, two scored runs, and added three runs batted in. Juan Morales also went two for three, with a double, two runs scored, and a run batted in.

Senior Greg Saldate also went four innings in the second game, allowing just one hit and striking out three.

“Greg is making us feel real good about the way he’s going,” said Gewecke.

In the opener southpaw Jonathan Beltran went a solid two innings, throwing 22-pitches, he’s expected to be the starter when the Moors travel to Bell Gardens on Friday to open up Almont League play.

“This has been a good experience,” said Kalani HC Shannon Hirai. “We wish we could have been more competitive.”

The Falcons will face Monrovia tomorrow, then Beverly Hills on Thursday, before driving out to Las Vegas.

In the southland they’ve experienced great baseball weather, gone to Magic Mountain, and an earthquake.

“I woke up this morning and I look up and I saw my roof moving,” said Hirai. “I had to check out the news, and the kids, I’m tired right now.
