FAIRFIELD — Seven innings were played, only six were needed.

The Northern Solano 13-under Babe Ruth All-Stars overcame a 7-4 deficit to win 14-8 over Napa at Allan Witt Park, Tuesday.

The win puts Northern Solano in the District 3 championship game against Vallejo, beginning at 10 a.m. in Vallejo, Friday. If necessary, a second game will be played after.

Northern Solano was down 7-4 entering the bottom of the fifth inning, then scored four runs, giving them the one-run advantage. It gained big run-support in the home-half of the sixth, plating six runs – all coming from the first six batters.

Cole Thompson led-off the fifth with a walk, stole second and advanced to third on an overthrow. He then scored on a single from Anthony Thomas. Billy Lacey was the next to score. Lacey walked and advanced to second on a overthrow as Napa tried a pick-off. He then crossing the plate on a double by Elijah Kidd.

The tying run came when Mannaseh Bates drew a walk, scoring Jake Modena, who ran for Osueldo Garcia. The go-ahead run came from Chris Uliano, who singled on a 1-2 count, plating Kidd.

Northern Solano went 1-2-3 in the top of the sixth behind the arm of Brandon Wink, who only allowed two base-runners in the top of the seventh, one from a walk and one reached on an error.

With one on and two outs, the last out of the game came as Wink caught Napa’s Owen Zuidema leaning, picking him off and getting the out at first.

“Overall, we played pretty good,” Northern Solano coach Sam Thomas said. “The bats came alive today and that helped us out. Anytime you can get hits, you got a chance to win.”

Northern Solano had a combined fives hits in the first four innings, improving to 10 hits in the fifth and sixth innings.

“That’s been our challenge the whole tournament,” the coach said. “We start out slow, then get some hits, gaining confidence and then start steam-rolling.”

The home team started with an immediate deficit, allowing four runs in the top of the first inning, facing nine batters, getting the third out on the ninth batter.

Northern Solano responded with two runs in the bottom of the first, and went three scoreless innings before giving up three runs in the top of the fifth.

Thompson, Thomas and Garcia each reached base every plate appearance. Thompson was 2 for 2 with two walks, while Thomas was 4 for 4 – all singles. Garcia was 3 for 3 with one walk.
