Post 77 powers past Fair Oaks

From page B1 | July 15, 2014 |

FAIR OAKS — With the Area 1 playoffs set to start next week, Yolo Post 77 is hitting its stride at the perfect time.

On Sunday, the local American Legion baseball squad got a stellar outing from starting pitcher Carlos Enriquez, and backed him with more than enough offense to beat Fair Oaks, 10-2, in a seven-inning game at Del Campo High.

Yolo’s defense was a bit off in the early innings — helping the Oaks get single unearned runs in the first and third — but those were only smudges on an otherwise pretty picture.

Enriquez went the distance, striking out 12 against no walks and allowing zero earned runs. Meanwhile, Post 77 saw eight players either get a hit or score a run.

“We played a great game,” said Yolo skipper Dave Ryan. “Everything is kind of coming together right now.”

Thomas Galart continued his hot hitting of late with a pair of hits, including a tape-measure home run that went over some houses just outside the left-field fence. Ryan estimated that blast at more than 400 feet.

In addition, a trio of players with Davis ties contributed mightily on Sunday as former DHS standout Jake Miille was 2-for-5 with a run scored and another knocked in while current Blue Devil Andrew Bolich went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBIs and a run. Another Devil, Daniel Henrickson, batted in two runs of his own and was on base twice with a hit and a walk.

Also for Yolo, Kiki Gonzalez scored three times and Colton Gunther tallied twice.

Post 77 is back at Clark Field Tuesday for an afternoon doubleheader against Eureka. The first game gets underway at 2 p.m. at the historic field in Woodland.

The locals then play Orland in a home-and-home series later this week, before starting the Area 1 playoff on July 23 in Fairfield.
