PADRES TOP SLUGGERS IN PEE WEE BASEBALL

The Padres rebounded from their Friday defeat to top the Sluggers, 11-3 Monday afternoon in the St. Thomas PeeWee League action at the Emile Griffith Ballpark.
The Padres bats came out hot. In the top of the first inning, the first four batters, Arsenio Watlington, Michael Roberts, Jakoi Forbes and Jarrell Mason got base hits and scored.
The Sluggers scored single runs in the second, third and fourth innings. With the runs, they mounded a comeback to keep the game close as they got within two runs, 5-3 after four complete innings.
In the top of the fifth inning, the Sluggers got the first two Padre batters out on strikes. However, the next two hitters singled. This set the scene for Watlington, who ripped a three-run homerun over the left fielder’s head that gave his team an 8-3 lead. The rally did not end there as Roberts, Forbes and Mason followed with back to back to back singles and all scored to put the game out of reach.
The Padres went down one, two, three in the bottom of the fifth to end the game.
