Ceres Gray 14s place third
The Ceres Gray 14-and-under All-Stars collected one win, two ties and a loss on their way to a third-place finish at the Bel Passi baseball tournament.

"I'm never upset with the boys," said head coach John Cardelli, whose team improved to 16-3-3 in summer-league play. "They always give 100 percent."

Bel Passi Red eliminated the All-Stars on July 20 in Modesto. Ceres Gray led 3-1 before losing 5-4 to the host team.

The All-Stars were hurt by four errors.

"We can't win every game," Cardelli said.

David Brazil pitched the first four innings for Ceres Gray. The All-Stars trailed 4-3 when he left the contest.

Jesse Hatfield allowed one run in two innings of relief.

Wes Ward caught all seven innings.

Bel Passi Red broke a 4-4 tie with a run in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Ceres Gray failed to respond in the top of the seventh.

The All-Stars totaled seven hits off Bel Passi Red's pitching staff.

David Griffin and Christian Martinez had two hits apiece. Brazil, Grant Wolff and Chris Moscozo all contributed one hit.

Ceres Gray tied Weston Ranch (5-5) on July 19, defeated Ceres Red (15-10) on July 18 and tied Atwater (8-8) on July 17 at the six-team tournament.
