MOLINE, IL – Ramon Jones pitched just well enough, and his BC A’s teammates scored just enough runs to survive the tough and talented Scarborough Force, 4-2, in the loser’s bracket, Friday.

The win improves the A’s of British Columbia, Canada to 5-1 in the ISC World Tournament and sends them into Saturday’s final day needing two more wins to reach the championship game.

    A’s TO FACE BIG APPLE’S BEST

The A’s start off with the New York Gremlins (4-1) at 11 a.m. who defeated the A-1 Bombers, 10-5, to advance. The loss to the A’s was the second for Scarborough (3-2) and eliminates them from the tournament.

    CASTILLO BREAKS DEADLOCK

Both the A’s and Scarborough plated single runs in the first inning, but in the third the A’s took the lead for good when Kevin Castillo’s RBI single sent Marcus Tan crossing the plate. Then Chase Turner beat out a high chopper in the hole to plate Castillo.

    MOTRONI HOMER TIGHTENS THE SCORE

Luiger Pintos finished the A’s scoring by belting a leadoff homer run in the fourth to give the A’s a 4-1 lead. Scarborough’s dangerous Bruno Motroni’s cut the lead in half with a sharp single scoring Jerome Raemaki, who was aboard on a fielder’s choice.

Smelling the finish line, Jones stranded a runner at second with a strikeout to end the sixth, and in the seventh he got Motroni on a comebacker to end the game. The win improves the right-hander to 2-1 with a 1.51 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 27 2/3 innings.

For the A’s, leadoff batter Marcus tan was 2-for-4, run; Kevin Castillo 1-for-4, run, RBI; Greg Garrity 1-for-3, run, RBI; Pat Sagdal 2-for-2; Chase Turner 1-for-3, RBI; Pintos 1-for-3, run, RBI; and Jenner Christiansen 1-for-2.

Scarborough’s six hits came from Erick Ochoa, 2-for-3, Erick Urbaneja, 1-for-2, Jorge Lima, 1-for-3, Motroni 1-for-4, RBI; Andy Skelton, 1-for-4.
