The Palo Alto Babe Ruth 15-year-old all-stars took their first step toward a possible return to the World Series by blasting Mountain View, 17-5, in the opening round of the District 6 Tournament on Saturday at the Belmont Sports Complex.

Palo Alto trailed by 2-0 entering the bottom of the second when the all-stars scored six runs. Tucker Jorgensen's bases-loaded double was the big blow. He finished with two hits and three RBI and was the winning pitcher. Palo Alto scored seven times in the third with Dylan Cook and Jordan Piha both driving in a pair of runs. Cook finished with a team-high four RBI.

Palo Alto next will play a Bel-Mateo team on Monday in a winners'-bracket game at the Belmont Sports Complex at 7 p.m. The championship game is set for Wednesday at 7 p.m.
