Oaks' run in World Series ends with loss to defending champion


The Palo Alto Oaks had their stay in Houston shortened by a day or so after dropping a 5-0 decision to defending Stan Musial World Series champion Bayamon Vaqueros on Saturday at Baseball USA.

The Vaqueros advance to the championship game and will face the New England Braintree White Sox on Sunday.

The Oaks split their four games in their first trip to the World Series in team history.

Vaqueros' starter Manuel Romero threw a no-hitter at the Oaks, striking out seven but walking six in a 137-pitch effort.

Palo Alto starter Greg Matson took a shutout into the sixth inning but was unable to get out of the inning. Fellow Gunn High grad Ricky Navarro gave up two hits in 2 1/3 scoreless innings before giving way to Jason Kafka.

Roberto Moreno hit a two-run home run off Kafka in the top of the ninth inning to seal Palo Alto's fate.
