Casa Grande surges past Sonoma Valley 6-1

Casa Grande's baseball team is making a habit of coming from behind to win games.

When the Gauchos spotted Sonoma Valley a 1-0 lead Saturday in the championship of the Adam Westcott Memorial Tournament and wound up winning 6-1, it marked the fourth time in less than two weeks that Casa successfully staged a comeback.

On Friday, the tournament hosts trailed Cardinal Newman (2-1) and wound up winning, 4-3. Earlier in the month, they spotted Livermore a 5-0 lead and won 8-5. They did the same thing to Campolindo falling behind, 3-0, and winning, 9-3.

"These kind of games have given the team confidence," said Anthony Bender, one of the hitting stars Saturday. "We feel we can always come through in clutch situations."

Shortstop Bender had a perfect day at the expense of Sonoma pitching with two singles and a pair of walks.
