SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. – The pitching was steady, the offense efficient, the defense sure-handed and as a result the SoCal Knights claimed the Southern California Independent Fastpitch League (SCIFL) Alliance tournament championship at Los Nietos Park on Saturday.

The Knights broke open a tight game with three late runs to hold off the Budmen, 9-5, in the final. With the victory, the Knights extend their winning streak to a perfect 11-0 in southern California’s early fastpitch season.

Jesse Martinez hurled a six hitter with three walks and five strikeouts. After giving up four runs in the bottom of the first, the 29-year-old right-hander toughened the rest of the way, holding a one-through-nine murders row of Budmen hitters to just a lone run in fourth.

“Overall, we played solid defense,” said Knights player / manager Jason Martinez. “As a team, we didn’t tear the cover off the ball, but we were consistently getting that timely hit when we needed it, and our pitchers kept us in every game and gave us the chance to come out on top.”
