Post 77 splits a pair against West Sac

When Yolo Post 77 won three of its five games at the Chico Father’s Day Tournament and advanced to the June 15 championship contest, coach Dave Ryan felt his American Legion squad was starting to hit its stride.

But when games scheduled for last Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday were all canceled or postponed, the locals suffered a little hitch in their giddy-up.

When Yolo finally got back to the competition — in a Sunday doubleheader against West Sacramento at Clark Field — the rust was immediately apparent when it gave up six early runs. After that first half-inning of the opener, however, Post 77 found its grove, and eventually earned a split with a 10-6 loss and a 4-1 victory.

“Taking a week off kind of put us off of our timing. But it was nice to get some rest after the long high school season,” Ryan said after his team moved to 7-9. “(In the first game), we started chipping away … but we just never quite caught up.”

The nightcap featured a dominating pitching performance from Yolo starter Dalton Sachs, who struck out six in five shutout innings.

His team helped with near-flawless glovework — just one error — and by giving him a 4-0 lead by the time he left the game.

“Dalton Sachs was great,” Ryan explained. “And we played good defense and were just a lot sharper in that second game.”

For Post 77, former Davis High standout Trey Golston scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the third, then blasted a two-run double and tallied again in the fourth.

In the opener, Yolo fell behind 6-0 after the top of the first, then outplayed West Sac the rest of the way. Offensive standouts in that game included Golston — who had two hits and stole two bases — as well as Thomas Galart, Andrew Fuentes and Ethan Crisp, each of whom knocked in runs.

The two teams are back at Clark Field on Wednesday (7 p.m.) to make up a matchup that was originally schedule for Saturday.
