FAIRFIELD — There was a one-rocket pyrotechnic display after the game, but the Fairfield Expos American Legion baseball team set off the real fireworks with a 13-run sixth inning.

The monster frame propelled the Expos to a 16-1 victory over West Sacramento to open the Area 1 Tournament at Laurel Creek Park, Wednesday, a game that was called in the seventh inning because of the 10-run rule.

The Expos advance to Thursday’s winner’s bracket semifinals against the Humboldt Eagles at 7 p.m.

In Wednesday’s other games it was Redding 7, Lodi 5, Petaluma 12, Yolo Post 77 (Woodland) 1 and Humboldt 9, Chico 6.

“That’s the biggest inning we’ve had in a while,” said Hanson of the sixth, in which the Expos sent 17 batters to the plate, including the first 13 before an out was recorded. “I can’t remember when we put that many runs up in an inning.”

The rally made a laugher out of a nail-biter, a 3-1 Expos lead with West Sacramento getting the potentially tying runner into scoring position in the top of the sixth.

“What’s so unusual is the game was so close for so long,” Hanson said, “and it absolutely goes to shambles, but I’ll take it.”

Fairfield took the lead with a run in the second inning when Anthony Kaleczyc struck out with two outs, but reached when the ball got by the catcher Josh Holvick-Warman. Jason Brasile then singled to right center and when the relay throw to the infield bounced off shortstop Alex Dodd’s glove, Kaleczyc raced home with the game’s first run.

In the third, Cameron Michael tripled home Jake Hedrick and Jo Jo Quintanilla plated Michael with a sacrifice fly.

Expos starter David Hostler didn’t allow a hit through the first five innings and left after going 5 1-3, striking out eight and walking five.

West Sacramento finally got to Hostler in the sixth, Dodd drawing a one-out walk and Colton Brenner lining a shot to left field that got by a diving Quintanilla for a triple and an RBI.

After a second walk in the inning, Rylan Haney relieved Hostler and retired the next two batters to get out of the jam.

Hedrick and Michael walked to start the bottom of the sixth with West Sacramento starter Christian Irwin being replaced by Jake Pridmore.

It didn’t matter. Garlind Webster singled to load the bases and Carter Bins singled up the middle for two runs.

Quintanilla walked to reload the bases and Kaleczyc walked to force in a run. Brasile followed with a two-run single with Jack Gamba singling to load the bases once more.

JP San Antonio was hit by a pitch force in a run, Hedrick singled in a run, Michael was hit by a pitch to bring in a run and Webster walked to plate yet another run – all with still no outs.

Finally, Bins hit into a force play that brought home Hedrick with the 10th run of the inning. Quintanilla singled to reload the bases, which were promptly unloaded by a three-run double by Kaleczyc, making it 13 runs in the inning and 16-1 on the scoreboard.

Every Expos starter scored at least one run, each had at least one hit and all but one had an RBI.

Webster, Kaleczyc, Brasile and Gamba each had two hits, Hedrick and Michael each scored three times, Bins, Quintanilla and Kaleczyc twice, and Bins and Kaleczyc both had three RBIs, Michael, Quintanilla and Brasile two each.
