Bronco All-Stars force final game

PASO ROBLES — With temperatures hovering around 100 degrees on Sunday, the Paso Robles Bronco All-Stars put in a gritty performance to force a winner-take-all final against Toro in the PONY Northern California Regional.

Paso Robles Youth Baseball hosted the six-team, double-elimination tournament over the weekend at Robbins Field, with the top two teams advancing to the next round in Pacific Grove this week.

After coming from behind to walk-off against the Toro A All-Star team, Paso hosted one last game on Monday night to determine a champion. Results from that pairing were not available at press time.

Regardless of the outcome though, both Paso Robles and Toro will move on to the next stage as the one-two finishers from the regional.

“Win or lose, the top two teams go to Pacific Grove,” said Bronco head coach Tony Domingos. “So no matter what, we’re in the Super Regionals.”

That safety blanket didn’t seem to take the edge off either team on Sunday, as both Paso and Toro were fighting tooth-and-nail to finish in front.

In the end, Paso had to rely on a four-run seventh inning to stun Toro into submission, 15-14.

“They worked so hard and we just kept telling ‘em, ‘fight, fight and fight,’” Domingos said. “They beat out infield groundballs that should’ve been outs, they tried as hard as they could. It just shows the perseverance that myself and coach Bonham and Martinez have tried to teach them.”

“Never give up and keep playing as hard as we can, that’s what it’s all about,” Domingos concluded.
