The Mayfair baseball team advanced to the championship game of the El Segundo Tournament with a 5-2 win over Royal on Thursday afternoon.
Zach Morris led the way, driving in four of the Monsoon’s five runs. The RBIs were part of a three hit performance that included a home run and a double.
Alberto Rios reached base four times, going a perfect 3-for-3 from the plate and earning a walk. He capitalized on his opportunities with two runs.
A solid outing on the mound from Eric Chavarria kept Royal from piecing together big innings. The senior pitched a complete game with six strikeouts while only conceding one earned run.
The Monsoons kicked off the tournament with a 2-0 loss to South, but a 3-2 win over California and the win over Royal put them in Saturday night’s final against North Torrance. The game will be played at Stevenson Field in El Segundo at 7 pm.
