A game that began close, quickly unraveled and that turned out to be good news for Peak Performance in the Menlo Park Little League City championship game June 20 at Burgess Park. In the battle between city champs, Peak Performance of the Alpine/West Menlo league rallied for a 13-3 victory over Goetz Brothers, champs of the Menlo-Atherton league. Peak Performance's victory wrapped up its second city championship in three years. Michael Tinsley led Peak Performance with a strong showing both on the pitcher's mound and at the plate. Tinsley recovered from a rough first inning, in which he allowed a three-run homer to Erik Amundson, to pitch four scoreless innings. After the first inning, Tinsley did not surrender another hit and finished his outing with 12 strikeouts. "My curveball was most effective," said Tinsley, who also throws a 70 mile-per-hour fastball and a changeup. Tinsley also provided an offensive spark for Peak Performance, furthering his own cause by going 5-5 from the plate, including two doubles, and scoring four runs. Tinsley also stole four bases. Said Tinsley of what accounted for his success: "I don't know. It was just one of my days." However, Tinsley had by no means the only clutch game for Peak Performance. The offense came from variety of sources. Chris Lee went 2-2 with two RBI and locked up the game by pitching a perfect sixth inning. Charlie Cain provided two RBI along with a 2-4 performance at the plate, and Royce Branning drove in four runs, including a clutch double in the fifth inning that broke the game open for Peak Performance.
