Yolo Legionnaires win again in Chico tourney

CHICO — Woodland High’s Taz Ahmad hurled a complete-game four-hitter and Thomas Galart drove in two more runs as Yolo Post 77 stopped Napa, 4-3, in the second game of the Chico American Legion Father’s Day Tournament late Thursday evening.

Yolo, which is 2-0 in the five-game gathering, is 5-6 on the year.

“He challenged batters,” Post 77 manager Dave Ryan said afterwards. “Taz went right after guys. An eight-pitch inning and a five-pitch inning were keys — and we needed it after last night.”

In a 10-8 win over Walbeck on Wednesday, the locals used four pitchers and survived a 10-walk outing. Galart mashed a three-run homer and drove in five in the opener.

On Thursday, Ahmad used a wicked sinker to keep the Riverdogs off balance.

“That pitch is unusual for a guy so young,” Ryan said of his Wolves senior, who struck out four.

Davis High fans will remember the battle he gave area Player of the Year Matt Trask back on March 14. In a 2-1 loss to the Blue Devils, Ahmad actually led Trask 1-0 before DHS scratched out two sixth-inning runs to prevail.

In additional to Galart’s run-scoring double, Pioneer outfielder Colton Gunter smacked two hits and drove in an important run.

Yolo meets the Tri-City Gamblers (Winters) Friday at 4 p.m.
