Sierra 7, Kimball 4
Late-inning errors sank the Kimball High Jaguars after they nearly overcame the Sierra High Timberwolves’ early lead Tuesday at the Tracy Sports Complex.
Kimball’s starting pitcher, sophomore Samantha Sarmiento, took the loss after she gave up nine hits and seven runs, only one of them earned, as the Kimball defense racked up nine errors.
Sierra took a 3-0 lead in first, and by the fifth, the Jaguars had tied it up. Sierra scored a run in the sixth and three in the seventh, and Kimball answered with just one run in the bottom of the seventh.
Kimball’s four hits included a solo home run over the center-field fence by senior Danielle Lallos. Senior Gabbi Cox tripled, and senior Llesenia Torres singled twice and stole two bases.
