Palo Alto Babe Ruth city tourney is up next


Menlo Chevron will take the No. 1 seed into the Palo Alto Babe Ruth City Tournament after wrapping up the regular-season title with an 8-4 victory over Guy Plumbing and Heating on Monday night at Baylands Athletic Center.

Menlo Chevron finished 10-4 and will face No. 4 seed Ada's Cafe in the opening round of the city tourney on Friday at 5 p.m., also at Baylands.

The Oaks wrapped up the No. 2 seed with a 14-4 victory over Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ) on Tuesday night with DFJ earning the No. 3 seed. Those teams will face each other again on Friday at 8 p.m.

The Oaks (9-4) still must play Alhouse Realty (6-7) on Wednesday night to close the regular season, but Menlo Chevron holds the tiebreaker with The Oaks should they also finish 10-4.

DFJ finished 9-5 while Ada's Cafe jumped from fifth to fourth with an 8-6 mark. Old Pro dropped to fifth at 7-7.

The double-elimination city tournament runs through June 30. All-star action will follow next month, with the Palo Alto 15s hosting the district and NorCal State tournaments, the first starting on July 2.
