Healthy Pets put up a fight, but it wasn't long before All Out asserted itself as the dominant team in Palo Alto Little League. All Out rode its powerful offense and the pitching of left-hander Griffy Byer to a 10-2 victory in the championship game of the Palo Alto Little League City Tournament on Saturday at Middlefield Ballpark.

All Out dominated the competition in the city tournament, winning all five of its games and outscoring its opponents by a combined score of 44-16. After a slow start to the season, All Out won 20 of its last 21 games.

After seeing Healthy Pets cut its lead to one run, All Out put the game out of reach with a six-run fourth inning. Byer and first baseman Pete Snodgrass both hit run-scoring singles and later were driven in by consecutive two-run doubles from third baseman David Clarke and second baseman Niko Lillios.

In addition to getting on base all four times and driving in three runs, Byer kept the Healthy Pets lineup off balance all game long with a slew of curveballs and changeups. Byer pitched a complete game, striking out seven batters while only surrendering one walk.
