City Section baseball: San Fernando wins Division I championship [Video]

June 1, 2013 |  4:10 pm

A two-strike RBI single by Roberto Ramos, his third single of the game, drove in Jose Haros for the tie-breaking run in the bottom of the sixth inning to lift San Fernando (33-3) past Cleveland, 2-1, in the City Section Division I championship game at Dodger Stadium.

Ramos also had a two-strike RBI single off Cleveland ace Jack Hartman in the first inning and a two-strike single in the fourth. He finishes with 43 RBIs.

"I was just trying to do the best I could, and thank god I came through," Ramos said.

Armando Esparza threw a complete game for San Fernando, striking out eight. He retired nine consecutive batters at one point.

It was the second City title in three years for Coach Armando Gomez.

Hartman lost for only the second time in 14 decisions. Cleveland finished 24-11 in the final game for Coach Greg Venger, who is resigning.
