From page B2 | July 07, 2013 |

After topping Lodi (8-3) in the tournament opener on Wednesday, Yolo Post 77 (24-6) split Thursday games at the Fairfield Expos Fourth of July tournament.

The local American Legion baseball team opened play on Thursday by taking down Humboldt, 13-3, in a game that went just six innings due to a time limit.

But later that day, the host Expos took a big early lead and survived a furious Post 77 comeback to beat Yolo, 8-7.

Justin Carlier had a huge day in the doubleheader as he started by pitching a couple of scoreless innings against Humboldt and going 3-for-3 with two doubles and five RBIs. He then came back to knock in three runs in the loss to Fairfield.

Post 77 got RBIs in the early game from Hayden Duer, who also had a double; Nico Sandoval, who tripled; Adam Castelan; and Kiki Gonzalez. In the nightcap, Duer smacked another two-bagger and knocked in two more runs, while Mike Chavarria blasted two doubles and added an RBI.

AquaStarz

The Davis AquaStarz synchronized swimming team will give spectators a tour around the would at the club’s annual show, set for Friday and Saturday at Community Pool. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. both nights.

At the around-the-world themed show, the local swimmers will give fans a glimpse of their athleticism, dancing ability and coordination.

“Swimmers in this show confirm why the Davis team does so well in our league championships,” said AquaStarz President Cyndi Hughes. “Plus, this annual show is entertaining and fun for the whole family.”

The show will feature athletes ages 6 to 18, a “dads’ routine” and a raffle. Refreshments also will be available. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased from any AquaStarz team member or by emailing info@aquastarz.org. They also will be available for $6 at the door.
