VALLEJO — Xavier Vasquez crushed a grand slam and followed it with a two-run homer to power the Fairfield Atlantic Little League 11- and 12-year-old All-Stars to a 14-4 loser’s bracket victory over host East Vallejo in the District 53 tournament, Saturday.

After being blanked the first two innings, Atlantic got on the board in a big way in the third with Vasquez’s grand slam. His later blast ignited a five-run sixth inning.

“He’s responsible for six of our 14 runs so he played a huge role in our win,” Atlantic manager Kevin Reece said.

Anthony Clemente went 2 for 5 with a pair of doubles as Atlantic supplemented its nine hits with 10 walks and two batters hit by pitches.

Petey Regalado did the job on the mound, striking out eight over five innings to get the win.

Atlantic plays either Suisun American or Cordelia/Tri-Valley at Tri-Valley on Saturday at 9 a.m.

Fairfield Pacific 11-12 15, Napa American 5: At St. Helena in the winner’s bracket, Cameron Martin belted a solo home run to start the decisive eight-run bottom of the third inning and Victor Martinez brought on the 10-run rule with a two-run homer in the fifth for Pacific.

Robert Gabbart was 4 for 4, while Martin, Martinez, DJ Scott and Carlvesi Light each had two hits. Martin, Light, CJ Laui, Gabbart and Martinez each drove in two runs, while Scott had two doubles, Martinez, Light, Gabbart and Mateo Ponce one each.

Light picked up the victory in relief, scattering six hits over the final three innings while striking out six.

Pacific plays against either Benicia or North Vallejo at Tri-Valley on Saturday at 9 a.m. with the winner advancing to Tuesday’s winner’s bracket finals. The loser would have to win games over each of the next six days to claim the district crown.

“That game (Saturday) determines whether we play every day next week or have three days off,” Pacific manager Chris Gabbart said.

Fairfield Pacific 10-11 9, Fairfield Atlantic 2: At East Vallejo in the winner’s bracket, Jeshua Pitcher pitched 4 2-3 innings to get the win for Pacific, allowing one earned run. Collin Medeiros and Alex Carver combined to get the last four outs.

Pitcher, Medeiros and Roberto Hernandez each collected two hits, one of Hernandez’s going for a triple. Medeiros also had a sacrifice fly, while Carver and Justin Duff each had one hit.

Pacific plays host East Vallejo on Saturday at 10 a.m.

Fairfield Pacific 9-10 14, Suisun American 10: At St. Helena in the winner’s bracket, Joseph Light allowed just one run over the final 4 2-3 innings and helped his cause by going 4 for 5 with three doubles to lift Pacific to the victory.

Also for Pacific, Gabe Ponce was 3 for 4 with two doubles, Ernest Turner was 2 for 2 with two walks, Ian Logsdon was 1 for 2 with two walks and Armando Hernandez was 1 for 2.

Pacific plays either Fairfield Atlantic or Napa American on Saturday at St. Helena at 10 a.m.
