SUISUN CITY — The Suisun American Little League Dodgers put up four runs in the second inning and five in the third en route to an 11-1 victory over the Cordelia/Tri-Valley Indians, Wednesday, in the semifinals of the District 53 Minor Division Tournament of Champions.

The Dodgers will play in the championship game against either American Canyon champion or Napa National runner-up on Saturday in Napa at 12:30 p.m.

Catcher Tommy Yost hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth, scoring Mathew Vickroy, to give the Dodgers its 11th run, giving them the 10-run advantage over the Indians. Earlier in the inning, Vickroy singled in Dameion Regalado, who had doubled.

Along with the 11 runs, the Dodgers’ pitching was showcased as starter Nicholas Tobin struck out seven in 4 2-3 innings of work. The only hit against him came in the top of the fourth by the Indians’ Wyatt Smith. Before the hit, Tobin struck out four straight batters.

“He’s a great ball player,” coach Juan Regalado said of Tobin. “He throws right down the middle and hits the targets. I can’t say enough about him.”

Regalado came in relief for Tobin and got the first batter he saw to pop out to end the fifth. After that he allowed only two hits and one run with one strikeout.

The Indians run came in the top of the fifth as Ryan Paynton scored from third on a passed ball. He hit a two-out double and advanced to third on a fielder’s choice.

“You got to give credit to the Dodgers,” Indians coach Gary Smith said. “Their starting pitcher was outstanding and kept us off the bases.

“I’m very proud of my team. I’m proud of how they battled all year long. We put a lot of work in all season and I appreciate their hard effort and work ethic.”

The Dodgers’ first run of the game came as TJ Lipkins singled, plating Tobin, while Joseph Guttman scored Julian Ortega on a fielder’s choice after Ortega singled earlier in the inning. Lipkins and Dylan Chrum each scored on passed balls.

In the bottom of the third, Yost hit a double down the right field line which brought in Addison Ramos, who had walked, and Regalado, who hit a double. The fourth run came in as Vickroy scored on a passed ball and Tobin singled in Yost for the last run of the inning.

The Dodgers had nine hits and seven walks with Yost leading the way with three RBIs, while Guttman had two.

Regalado said that his team has come a long way and that he has been coaching them since T-ball.

“I’m proud of my boys and we are looking forward to Saturday,” he said.
