PA American topples PA National in district Little League

 

In most years, the Palo Alto National Little League all-stars advance farther than Palo Alto American. That's not the case this season as American knocked National out of the District 52 11-12 Majors Tournament on Tuesday night at Middlefield Ballpark.

Julien Hernandez pitched a standout game and hit a two-run homer to pace Palo Alto American to an 8-2 win over PA National. Ben Gordon hit a two-run homer for National's only runs.

Palo Alto American will be back in action Friday against Belmont-Redwood Shores at Middlefield Park at 5 p.m. BRS eliminated Pacific American, 20-15, in Tuesday's late consolation-bracket game of the double-elimination tourney.

Menlo-Atherton will try to stay alive in the consolation bracket when it faces Foster City on Wednesday at 5 p.m.

In the 10-11 all-star event, Alpine/West Menlo remained alive and eliminated Palo Alto National with a 5-4 win over La Entrada School. Menlo-Atherton, meanwhile, was eliminated by Hillsborough, 11-1.

In the 9-10 all-stars in Pacifica, Alpine/West Menlo will face San Carlos National and Palo Alto National will take on San Mateo National in elimination games Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.

the word should be "farther" not "further" and, can anyone explain to me ford's logo "go further" i for the life of me, don't have a clue what they are trying to say.

It could be further......farther means distance.....they are talking about a team going deep into the postseason playoffs, not talking about the distance the team is traveling....like from here to Williamsport, Pa. Ford ad is correct....they are talking about going someplace like never before....that's further.
