Hillsborough 4, Palo Alto 11-12s 2
Date of competition: Sunday, July 10, 2011
The Palo Alto Little League baseball program is officially on vacation after Palo Alto National saw its season end in the District 52 Majors 11-12 All-Star Tournament on Sunday at Middlefield Ballpark. Instead of playing in Monday night's championship game against San Carlos American at 7 p.m., Palo Alto National players will be watching Hillsborough in that role following a 4-2 loss to the defending champion on Sunday.
The game opened with a first inning flurry of scoring and then became a pitchers' duel for the next five. Blake Marcus of Hillsborough pitched a complete game for the winners, allowing just three hits and recording nine strikeouts. After a rough opening inning, Alec Olmstead of Palo Alto silenced the Hillsborough bats while scattering five hits over five innings and striking out 10. Justin Hull closed out the contest with a scoreless sixth.
Hillsborough tallied three runs in the first but Palo Alto's Justin Hull answered with a two-run homer over the centerfield fence in the bottom of the frame for a 3-2 game. Robert Dechocho added to the Hillsborough lead with a solo home run to lead off the second. That was the last time either team would score.
