SAN BERNARDINO Behind the tenacious pitching of senior right-hander Joey Wilkinson, Cajon High School shut out Apple Valley 4-0 Tuesday to break a three-way baseball tie for first place in the San Andreas League. San Bernardino, which also began the day tied for first, fell to Victor Valley, 8-3. Wilkinson went the distance, choking off numerous Sun Devils threats while shutting out Apple Valley on nine hits and three walks. He stranded 10 AVHS runners, including three at third base to hike his record to 4-2 and reduce his ERA to 1.50. He struck out four. Apple Valley right-hander Mike Hill (2-1) took the loss as he gave up one earned run on four hits. Reliever Mike Wallace gave up two runs in the sixth inning. The Cowboys improve to 3-1 in the SAL and 6-4 overall. Apple Valley falls to 2-2 and 7-5. "Wilkinson did a great job for us today," said Cajon coach Bill Mierzwik. "This win really raised our confidence level. Right now we are doing a lot better in pitching and fielding, but our bats need to start coming around for the timely hit more often." Three errors by the Sun Devils cost them two runs and the loss is Apple Valley's second straight. Sun Devils coach Gahbrielson attributed Tuesday's loss to "mental and physical errors." "I'm unhappy about the kids today," said Gahbrielson. "They were not mentally prepared coming into this game. The last two weeks we have made quite a few errors, especially at first base." Cajon scored the first and deciding run in its half of the third inning on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by sophomore catcher Mike Proch. The Cowboys struck again in the fifth inning when senior Jeff Bees came home from third base on a fielding error by Apple Valley shortstop Travis Satterland. Cajon padded its lead in the sixth. With runners on the corners, Wallace threw to first in an attempt to pick off Shane Chuning. Caught off the bag, Chun-ing was chased toward second base by Jason Hamilton. Meanwhile, Cameron Gerber (brother of California Angel Craig Gerber) took the opportunity to race home. Hamilton saw Gerber making the dash but the throw home was a tad late. Chuning stole third base moments later and came home when Jason True bobbled the throw. "If we keep this up, we're going to lose (to Bar-stow) on Friday," said Gahbrielson. "Changes will be made and non-producers will be sitting the bench."
