The Bucs lost in a ninth inning walk off to the Cal Bucs at Conejo Creek south park Friday. Ventura County came out with great starting pitching from Hunter Edwards who went six innings pitched giving up only one run and five hits. He was able to get out of tight situations, including the second inning when he gave up only a run after a bases loaded no out jam.


“I thought I started off a little slow but was able to pick it up at the end,” Edwards said.

The offense did show some strength, a few players really showed off their bat. Center Fielder Eddie Tejeda was one of them going 3 for 4 with two stolen bases and an RBI. Left fielder Chase Kriger also went 2 for 4 with a stolen base and a RBI.


When asked about his team’s performance, Coach Ruben said “I am kind of happy with what I saw, with guys putting bunts down and showing up when we need them”. He then went on to commend the starting pitcher on his performance.


The GCCL Bucs will play the Cal Bucs again on July 9, 2022 at 9 am Conejo Oaks South Park at 10 am.
