Yolo posts a split to open tourney

Starting pitchers — and their ability to go late in games — are key for a baseball team in tournament play and, knowing that, the Yolo Post 77’s starters stepped up on Wednesday.

Playing twice on the first day of the Fairfield Fourth of July American Legion tournament, those good outings helped Yolo earn a split, falling 8-2 to Chico then winning the nightcap, 7-4, over the hosts.

Davis High graduate Jake Miille started and threw well — despite the loss — in the opener and Kiki Gonzalez followed suit to lead Post 77 past Fairfield. Another former Blue Devil hurler, Trey Golston, came in to close things out for the locals.

“We needed a boost from our starting pitching,” said Yolo head coach Dave Ryan. “Miille, in Game 1, did great. And in Game 2, Kiki Gonzalez (had) a commanding performance, He had three pitches working and had Fairfield off balance for five innings.”

According to Ryan, it was a great win for Post 77, and especially Gonzalez, who hadn’t started a game in more than a year.

“It was a character-builder for us,” Ryan explained. “We got the lead and finished strong.”

Yolo has Thursday off before getting back on the field Friday at 11 a.m.
