The Buccaneers (7-15-1, 3-9) defeated AOS Baseball 12-5 Sunday afternoon at Cal Poly Pomona.
Inland Valley trailed 5-0 heading into the bottom of the sixth, but refused to give in.
Anthony Seminaris started the rally off with a single and scored on a two-run single by Kevin Riley. Richie Chavez, who singled, scored on the play as well. Riley scored on an RBI ground out by Jake Teagle. Johnny Juarez singled and scored on a hit by Bryce Brooks. The fifth run came in on a wild pitch as Brooks crossed home plate to knot the score up at 5.
The Bucs added another run in the sixth inning when Seminaris scored on a throwing error by the catcher, but he was just getting started.
In the eighth, Luke Asperger and Brendan Campbell each had one RBI scoring Juarez and Teagle respectively to increase the lead to 8-5.
That set the stage for Seminaris with the bases loaded. He cracked a fly ball down the left field line for an inside-the-park grand slam. Brooks, Asperger and Campbell scored on the knock.
Micah Beyer (1-1) earned the pitching win striking out three in 1.2 innings of relief.
Gerardo Ramirez was electric striking out five in two innings, while allowing no hits.
