From page B2 | July 10, 2014 |

VALLEJO — Noah Schlemmer struck out nine batters in six innings and went 2 for 4 with a triple and two RBIs to lead the Northern Solano Babe Ruth 15-year-old All-Stars to a 13-3 win over Vallejo to claim the District 3 championship at Wilson Park, Tuesday.

The game was called after six innings because of the 10-run rule. Earlier in the day, Vallejo topped Northern Solano 9-6 to force a second game.

For his efforts, Schlemmer, who scattered four hits and scored twice in the title-winning game, was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

Northern Solano scored five runs in the fourth inning and five more in the sixth to end the proceedings.

Jewelian Johnson went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI, David Amicucci reached base and scored three times and Tim Schenone drove in three runs with a pair of sacrifice flies and a hit.

In Tuesday’s first game, Northern Solano scored four runs in the third inning and two in the fifth to close the game to 8-6. It then loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth but failed to score.

Schlemmer went 3 for 4 with an RBI, while Amicucci and Schenone each went 2 for 4.

Northern Solano advances to the Northern California state tournament in Belmont to play the Mountain View, the District 6 runner-up, on July 19 at the Belmont Sports Complex at 1 p.m.

Northern Solano’s 13-year-old All-Stars open the state tournament against Tri-Valley on Saturday at Wilson Park at 1 p.m., while the 14s play host Woodland on Saturday at Clark Field at 7 p.m.

The Northern Solano Seniors All-Stars begin play in the state tournament against Sacramento National at Elk Grove’s Batholomew Field on Friday at 8 p.m.

Near no-hitter gives Expos sweep of Eagles

ARCATA — The Fairfield Expos American Legion baseball team came within an out of a no-hitter and Cameron Michael singled in Jo Jo Quintanilla in the top of the eighth inning to give them lead for good as they completed a sweep of the Humboldt Eagles with a 3-2 win, Wednesday.

Jake Hedrick tied the game for the Expos with a two-run single in the top of the sixth after the Eagles had taken a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Matthew Lanza went 2 for 3.

After starter Jake Brandt pitched 1 2-3 innings, Matthew Sherman went 6 1-3 in relief without giving up a hit or a run to get the win, striking out six and walking one.

Rylan Haney pitched a scoreless finale frame to get the save, giving up the Eagles’ only hit of the game with two outs in the ninth to Wyatt Tucker.

The Expos are off until Friday when they host Sonoma County at Laurel Creek Park at 6:30 p.m.
