After a doubleheader setback to American Legion baseball national runner-up Petaluma on Saturday at Clark Field, Post 77 heads to Chico on Wednesday for the annual Father’s Day five-day tournament.

Petaluma beat the locals 17-7 and 9-4 as coach Dave Ryan continues to piece together his squad.

As is typical for American Legion teams this time of year, vacations, graduations and some colleges still in session have coaches scrambling for players.

On Wednesday, Post 77 meets Walbeck; on Thursday, it’s an 8:45 p.m. game against Napa; on Friday, the County Gamblers are up at 4:15 p.m.; and San Mateo awaits Saturday (1 p.m.).

Depending upon outcomes, Yolo’s Sunday foe is yet to be determined.

Angels 4, Athletics 1: At Anaheim, Mike Trout drove in a run with a double that originally was ruled a homer, Garrett Richards pitched seven strong innings and the Angels beat Oakland in the Monday opener of a series between the top two teams in the AL West.

The Angels’ fourth straight victory reduced Oakland’s lead to 3 1/2 games, but it did not come without some controversy.

Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia was ejected by first base umpire Bob Davidson in the fifth inning for arguing after a call was overturned on replay.

Oakland manager Bob Melvin challenged Trout’s towering drive to right field, believing the ball was touched by a fan at the top of the 18-foot wall. Originally ruled a two-run homer, Trout was awarded an RBI double.

Nationals 9, Giants 2: At San Francisco, Ian Desmond had a career-high five RBIs and Stephen Strasburg won his third straight decision for Washington.

Denard Span added a triple and two doubles to help the Nationals win for the eighth time in 10 games. Desmond had three hits and Jayson Werth drove in two runs.

San Francisco had its five-game winning streak snapped.

Omaha 2, Sacramento 0: At West Sacramento, righty Dan Straily and the River Cats were outdueled by Ryan Verdugo and the Storm Chasers in the first contest of the four-game set at Raley Field.

Verdugo (3-1, 3.44 ERA) retired 18 of the 20 batters he faced in his third win of the season. The smooth-throwing lefty permitted only one hit and one walk while striking out six in six innings of work.

The Storm Chasers’ stellar pitching effort didn’t stop with Verdugo, however, as relievers Casey Coleman and Spencer Patton combined to toss three shutout innings. Patton is now tied for the league lead with 13 saves after striking out three batters in two scoreless frames.

Straily (3-2, 3.96 ERA) kept the game close by allowing only two runs on four hits and a walk to go with seven strikeouts over eight innings, but was ultimately pegged with the loss.
