Palo Alto 15U all-stars return to championship game

 
Palo Alto catcher Garrett Faure recorded a pair of quality at bats Wednesday.

Ritter Amsbaugh threw a four-hitter and Zander Darby collected three hits and drove in a run as the Palo Alto Babe Ruth 15U all-star team topped Mountain View, 4-1, on Wednesday night to earn a spot in Thursday's Babe Ruth 15U NorCal State Tournament Championship.

Palo Alto dug itself out of the elimination bracket and will need to win twice, with the first game beginning at 5 p.m. at the Sports Complex off Ralston Ave., to advance to the Southwest Regional in Surprise, AZ.


Darby's RBI single, plating Stephen Lee, in the top of the fifth snapped a 1-1 tie. Darby later scored on an error. Palo Alto added an unearned run in the sixth after Jack Ryan doubled.

Armsbaugh retired 14 of the final 17 batters he faced. He struck out four and walked two.

Ryan added a pair of hits. Matthew Caren doubled and Darby added a pair of stolen bases for Palo Alto.
