Baseball: Burton plays small ball to beat Mission and secure playoff spot

By Jeremy Balan

Hits weren’t plentiful in the Academic Athletic Association play-in game between Burton High School and Mission on Monday at Silver Terrace Playground, so the Pumas had to get creative.

Trailing 1-0 with just one hit through three innings, Burton right fielder Thomas Tsang worked a walk, stole second base and advanced to third on a wild pitch.

Then Burton’s No. 4 hitter, Austin Perez, put a picture-perfect bunt single down the third-base line to score Tsang and shift the momentum in a 6-2 Burton win, which gives the Pumas their first playoff berth since 2008.
