HOLTVILLE — The Calexico White Sox downed the Brawley Reds 2-0 to win the Little League minors team inter-city championship here Monday.
Esaul Madrigal pitched the complete game for the White Sox and allowed only three hits through six innings, striking out 12.
Cody Riley took the loss for the Reds.
The White Sox jumped to a lead in the second inning when Jesus Ruvalcaba knocked in Jeremy Roldan.
Trevor Robinson flied out to Danny Ojeda in center field to end the inning with a 1-0 Calexico advantage.
The top of the third was non-productive for Brawley as Madrigal struck out the first two batters before Dylon Mohamed grounded out.
In the bottom of the inning, Madrigal landed on first via a fielding error and Alonso Nuñez followed with a walk. Roldan reached first on a fielder's choice and Nuñez scored on an error to give Calexico a 2-0 advantage.
