There’s a lot made about the importance of finishing in sports, but just as often, the way a team starts determines its fate.

That was the case in Wednesday night’s matchup between the Davis American and Vacaville Central 9-10 All-Stars.

VCLL knocked the wind out of DALL with a two-run homer in its second at-bat of the game and found itself off to a hot start with Davis struggling to catch up.

In the end, Vacaville took a 10-3 decision in a District 64 Tournament game at the Davis Little League Complex.

DALL will now try to keep its title hopes alive in its first elimination game of the tourney at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday night.

“We had two critical problems,” said Davis manager Casey Shorts. “We didn’t play good defense and we didn’t hit that well. So, other than that, they kept their heads up and we made a late rally but it just wasn’t enough.”

After VCLL went up 2-0 in the top of the first, DALL’s Joby Antony responded with a double in the bottom of the frame that brought Demetrius Hyder across the plate. But Vacaville continued to roll, ripping off eight more runs over the next two and a half innings.

In the bottom of the fourth, Antony scored off a single by Colby Mayer and, in the sixth, Jordan Painter was walked home with the third Davis run. But that was as close as the locals would come.

Pitcher Robert Schacherbauer started the game for DALL and went two innings, striking out one while giving up two runs. He was followed by Hyder, Luke Murray and Grafton Shorts, who also played well behind the plate.
