Local baseball roundup: Yolo wins District 6 championship

Facing Fair Oaks in a Saturday American Legion baseball doubleheader, Yolo Post 77 needed to win just once to clinch the District 6 title and earn the No. 1 seed in the league’s year-end tournament.

The locals took care of business, 8-3, in the opener before dropping the less meaningful nightcap, 12-3, at Bella Vista High School.

In the victory, Yolo (21-5, 9-2) fell behind early and still trailed 3-2 after five innings. However, a run in the sixth tied the game and three runs in the seventh frame put  Post 77 ahead for good.

Thomas Galart started for the locals, pitching well before giving way to Jake Miille — a former Davis High standout — in the seventh. Throwing to Hayden Duer, his Blue Devil batterymate this spring — Miille did not allow a run in closing out the contest.

At the plate, former DHS slugger Chris Gnos paced Yolo with two hits and knocked in a pair of runs, while Adam Castelon added three RBIs. Joe Murray had a hit and an RBI in the win.

The Oaks came back strong in Game 2, never trailing after scoring four runs in the bottom of the first.

Leading hitters for Post 77 included Duer, who was 1-for-3 with an RBI, and Justin Carlier, who smacked a single and a double and knocked in one.

River Cats drop 1-0 decision

Sacramento pitcher Andrew Werner had his best start of the season for the River Cats — surrendering one run and striking out six in 7 1/3 innings of work — but it wasn’t enough to prevent a 1-0 loss to the Reno Aces on Saturday night at Raley Field.

Both teams were kept scoreless through five innings as Werner and Reno starter Tyler Skaggs combined for 17 strikeouts. But Juan Riviera broke through for the Aces, bringing home Tyler Bortnick on an RBI groundout in the sixth for the only run of the game.

The Cats threatened to win the game in the ninth inning, putting men at second (Grant Green) and third (Michael Choice) with two outs. However, Reno’s Chaz Roe struck out Luke Montz to end the contest.
