    MOLINE, IL – J & B Painting’s Tyler Whynot drilled a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to forge a 1-1 tie, and Jesse Palacios drove in the winning run in the eighth on a bases-loaded fly ball to bring in Blake Hunter, as J & B held off the Bloomington (IL) Stix, 2-1, to improve to 2-0 in the ISC World Tournament.

    Patrick Burns fired a three-hitter with 11 strikeouts over seven innings, and Tony Mancha came on in relief in the eighth to seal win, and send J & B into Tuesday’s round at 8 p.m. against the Toronto Gators (2-0), who beat the Topeka Toros, 8-0, to advance.

    The Stix scored an unearned run in the fourth to take the lead, and in the top of the eighth they had an excellent chance to win the game by loading the bases. But with two outs, Mancha struck out Rogelio Sequera to end the threat.

    Jeff Farion pitched well in defeat, giving up one earned run on six hits with two walks and eight strikeouts in seven innings. Ethan Johnston took the loss after relieving Farion in the eighth.

      AT THE PLATE

    J & B Paining collected seven hits with Hunter 3-for-3, run; while Mancha, Whynot (home run), Aaron Harvey, and Wilbert Cowick had one hit each.

    The Bloomingto Stix had four hits with John Zambrano going 2-for-2, while Abraham Jose Solorzano and Sequera had one hit a piece.

    Mancha the man for J & B Painting

    Sunday, August 14th, 2016

    MOLINE, IL – Tony Mancha hurls the ball windmill style with the best in world. He also swings the bat with authority, too. And in the opening game of the 70th Annual ISC World Tournament, Sunday, Mancha did it all in leading J & B Painting of Agoura Hills, Calif. to a 6-1 victory over Waterdown First Ontario Hammer.

    The right-hander from Las Cruces, New Mexico gave up one earned run on four hits, while walking one and striking out 10. And batting in the No. 5 slot, Mancha went 2-for-3 and drove in three runs.

    But he had plenty of help as his teammates pounded out 10 hits, with Jesse Palacios going 3-for-4, and Cameron Schiller, Blake Hunter, Tyler Whynot, Wilbert Cowick (home run), and Patrick Burns had one hit each.

    J & B Painting, ranked No. 7 by the ISC, fell behind 1-0 in the third on Scott Leblanc’s RBI triple, but it was shortlived as the J & B Painting plated two in its half of the inning and just kept rolling, adding two more in the fourth and single runs in the fifth and sixth.

    Mancha closed out the game in dominating fashion with two strikeouts and groundout to move J & B Painting into the second round on Monday where they will meet the Bloomington Stix (1-0) at 2 p.m.

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. – In sports phraseology, it’s called being “in the zone.” A dimension so frustratingly difficult to achieve and attain where an athlete’s skill is at its mental and physical highest peak.

    The Dodgers Clayton Kershaw has been in the zone. So has Stephen Curry of the Warriors and New England Patriots’ Tom Brady, and tennis star Roger Federer.

    And on Monday night at the ISC World Tournament, pitcher Scott Lieph of J&B Painting stepped into the zone with them.
