Crevelt's 4-hit night paces Palo Alto 14s to tournament win


Owen Crevelt collected four hits and drove in four runs and the Palo Alto Babe Ruth 14-year-old all-stars beat Vallejo, 12-4, Monday night at the Babe Ruth state tournament at Clark Field in Woodland.

Paul Thie added three hits and drove in three runs for Palo Alto, which plays again Wednesday at 5 p.m. and needs to win two more games to reach the first championship game.

Trevor Leon, who tossed the first six innings for the win, helped his own cause with a pair of hits and two RBI. Ryan Mo also drove in a pair.

Clark Mellen and Dante Cacchione each scored twice and collected a hit.

Vallejo took an early 2-0 lead, but Palo Alto responded quickly, scoring four times in the second. With one out, Mellen singled, Gianluca Shinn walked and Cacchione sacrificed them along.

Leon followed with a two-run double to tie the score. Leon scored on Thie's single, Mo walked and Crevelt singled home Thie.

Palo Alto erupted for five runs in the third, taking control of the contest. Crevelt's three-run double highlighted the rally, with Thie and Mo also driving in runs.

Mo also drove in a run in the fourth and Ian Collins scored on Thie's sixth-inning single.

Leon gave up a pair of earned runs, struck out two and did not walk a batter. Liam Muack worked the seventh to finish it.
