9-1 St. Mary’s.
The Rams will play a best-of-three series on June 1 and 2 at Pacific’s Klein Family Field for the Division 1 championship. A win will make St. Mary’s just the second team — and first from the south side of the section — to win three in a row. Elk Grove did it in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

Ferdun’s two-run single in the fifth gave the Rams an 8-1 lead.
Not sure if he ran through a stop sign or if the third-base coach waved him, but BC’s Bradley Bertuccio just got thrown out at the plate to end the top of the sixth … with his team trailing by seven runs. Oops.

St. Mary’s just added three runs and now leads Buhach Colony 6-0 in the top of the fifth.
Buhach Colony loaded the bases with one out in the third, but St. Mary’s pitcher Sam Held struck out Robbie Dallas and got Bradley Bertuccio to fly out to right to end the threat.
