WOODLAND — West Sacramento might want to consider walking Thomas Galart the next time it faces him.

The Yolo Post 77 designated hitter made himself heard during Wednesday night’s American Legion game with a 5-for-6 performance that included a grand slam and nine runs batted in. His efforts, along with those of his teammates, resulted in a 22-11 Yolo victory at historic Clark Field in Woodland.

“I was just talking to him about what a great hitter he is and then he goes up there and hits a grand slam, so he made it obvious,” said Yolo head coach Dave Ryan. “He’s fun to watch.”

Galart was instrumental in getting Post 77 off to a fast start. He hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning to score Trey Golston — a recent Davis High graduate — and then followed it up with a three-run triple in the second and the base-loaded blast in the fourth to help give Yolo (8-9) an early 13-4 advantage.

Galart, however, wasn’t the only Post 77 player to dominate at the plate. Golston was 4-for-6, while Andy Snow added two hits, one of them a two-run double.

Its big offensive outings were more than welcome, especially early on, as Yolo had some struggles on defense. West Sacramento also made good use of the long ball as it got back into the game with six runs in the bottom of the fourth, cutting the Post 77 lead to 13-10.

But after Carlos Enriquez took over on the mound during that inning, Yolo began to turn a close matchup into a rout.

Enriquez struck out eight while surrendering only three runs in a little over four innings of action.

And just as he began to quiet West Sac’s bats, the Yolo offense started to make more noise.

In the top of the fifth, Kiki Gonzalez hit a two-run double, then crossed the plate himself on a single by Galart. Colton Gunter, Galart and Dalton Sachs all came home in the next two innings on hits by teammates and, after Andy Snow smashed a double to bring in Jacob Grant and Golston then scored himself in the top of the eighth, Post 77 had its commanding 22-11 advantage.

“We’re seeing the ball pretty well right now,” Ryan explained. “The batting lineup is kind of starting to get used to each other. They’re all listening to each other and believing in each other.”

Notes: Golston closed out the game by striking out the side in the ninth inning. … Galart drew a roar from the crowd when he capitalized on a wild pitch and sped home in bottom of the second.
