Of all the ways to lose a game, San Fernando found one of the most unique conclusions imaginable: A walk-off balk.
After entering the bottom of the seventh with a 2-2 tie against Kennedy, San Fernando loaded the bases with two outs. Then, instead of a walk-off hit, walk, or even a hit-by-pitch, San Fernando trotted home with a walk-off balk.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, pitcher Louis Vargas was the key to San Fernando’s win, tossing six innings while allowing just three hits and racking up seven strikeouts.
All of that before the balk that sent everyone home. What a strange, unique, wild game.
