Fresno, CA - Once again Stephen Kane showed his dominance and went the distance to help the Chargers defeating Santa Rosa 7-1 in the opening game of the State Championships. Already leading the game 3-1, the Chargers broke the game open in the top of the 6th inning by adding four runs on three hits and an error by the Bear Cubs. The Chargers scored on back to back sacrifice flies by Jacob MacWilliam and Dylan Moore to score Blake Davey and Robert Chavarria respectively to expand the lead to 7-1 and eventually the final score.
Kane threw a complete game allowing 11 hits but allowed only one run. He struck out five and walked one.
The Chargers will play conference rival Fullerton on Saturday, winner over Feather River 9-1.
