CORONA, Calif. – Riding the arm and bat of Lumar Goss, Patricia’s Mexican Restaurant of Long Beach powered past the Warriors, 14-4, and the Smash Brothers, 4-2, Saturday, to advance to Sunday’s winner’s bracket final in the Ray Angulo Memorial Men’s Fastpitch Tournament at Promenade Park.

Goss pitched complete game victories, and in the win over Smash Brothers, he did just that – smash a walk-off, two-run home run in the eighth inning with the international tiebreaker run aboard.

Waiting to throw up a blockade in Sunday’s encounter is the Beaumont Coyotes, a young, talented team fresh off a 4th place finish in the NAFA A-Division World Series. The Coyotes sailed through Saturday’s nine-team field by defeating the Corona Chicanos, 4-1, and Those Guys of Long Beach, 10-2.

The two squads will meet at 9:30 a.m. with the winner advancing into the title game, and the loser dropping into the loser’s bracket.

The tournament is a most worthy fundraiser and memorial honoring Corona fastpitch pitcher Raymond Angulo who passed away in 2000. To learn more about the tournament and men’s fastpitch in Corona, read: Ernie Marez keeping men’s fastpitch softball alive in Corona
