Good pitching and even better hitting has Yolo Post 77 just three games from an Area 1 title.

The local American Legion baseball team’s 14-3 win over the Chico Nuts on Thursday was its 30th of the season and its second straight at the area tournament.

Yolo (30-7) scored two runs in the top of the first innings and never trailed in beating the tourney hosts. Two more tallies in the top of the fourth were all the dynamic Post 77 pitching combo of Thomas Galart and Jake Miille would need, but not all they would get.

While Galart tossed four shutout innings, and Miille followed with five strong — they combined to allow just five hits — the local hitters were teeing off …

“We did a great job swinging the bats tonight and continue to take advantage of the other teams mistakes,” Yolo coach Matt Castles told The Enterprise.

Hayden Duer paced Post 77 with four hits, including a double and an RBI, with Robert Daugherty blasting a home run and knocking in two runs on the night. Joe Murray got into the act, going 3-for-6 with a pair of RBIs, Bobby Young doubled and knocked in one and Kiki Gonzalez had two hits.

Duer, Murray, Young and Miille were all key components in Davis High’s run to the section playoffs this past spring.

Their contributions for Yolo on Thursday, helped the team advance to a 7 p.m. Friday matchup against Napa.

Post 77 and Napa have played twice this season, with the locals losing both. One matchup was a 15-1 blowout and the other a 5-4 thriller.
