City, two teams from San Diego. If Newport wins its first game
tonight, it would play again at 7:30.
Ryan Albert hit a solo home run to trim the Dana Point lead to 3-2
in the fifth inning Friday. The next batter, Jacob McCann, hit a line
drive into right-center field, but the center fielder fully stretched
to make the catch.
"That stopped our momentum and gave it back to them," Rich Hogan,
Newport Manager, said.
Dana Point led 2-0 after an inning and Newport cut it to one with
a run on the top of the third. Austin Wobrock, who reached on a
fielder's choice, scored on a passed ball after he stole second.
McCann and Nick Svendsen added singles to Newport's four-hit
attack. Albert also tallied a single.
Adrian Rodriguez pitched the first three innings for Newport while
Albert came on for the rest of the game.
Jack Grace made two running catches in center field and Blake
Davey played well at catcher, Hogan added.
