Post 77 survives 10 walks in opening tourney round

CHICO — Poor Andrew Fuentes.

Up all night studying. Taking finals early Wednesday morning. Thinking about Saturday graduation from Pioneer High as he drove to the opening game in the American Legion Father’s Day Tournament …

No one could blame him that he didn’t have the same stuff that provided his school with a three-hit shutout in the Division III section championship game two weeks ago.

His outing in Wednesday’s Post 77 game with Walbeck went almost 90 pitches and only 2 1/3 innings. Eight walks, five hits and six runs later he was gassed — but in the end, Yolo had its ace’s back in a 10-8 decision.

“He was obviously tired, didn’t have his usual dominating stuff,” Post 77 coach Dave Ryan explained. “But we got great base running, good fielding this game and when (Thomas) Galart hit that three-run homer, we got back in it.”

Down 5-1 early, slugger Galart unloaded on Titan hurler Wes Watanbe in the third, bringing the locals to within a run.

Yolo would score one more in the fourth and three more in the fifth to build a lead that led to Carlos Enriquez’s three-strikeout, close-out final frame.

With 16 walks in the game (10 by Post 77 pitchers), the two teams squeezed just 5 1/2 innings into the tourney time-limited (2:10) game.

“We got good relief pitching,” first-year Legion skipper Ryan told The Enterprise. “Dalton Sachs came on in the fourth, first-and-third one out, and saved things for us.”

Ryan praised former Davis High reliever Jake Miille for his early stint in relief of Fuentes.

Galart finished his big game 2-for-4 with five runs batted in, while Kiki Gonzalez, Ethan Chrisp and Enriquez added two hits apiece.

The Father’s Day Tournament continues through the weekend.
