It was a tough one to take for the Palo Alto National 11-12 Little League all-stars as they fell 10-9 to Redwood City National on Monday evening, eliminating them from the District 52 Tournament at Marina Field in Belmont.

After leading 9-5 entering the sixth inning, Palo Alto was unable to hang on to the lead, surrendering five runs in the last inning. As had been true for the first five innings, Redwood City relied on the long ball to get back into the game. Kenney Belanger roped a three-run home run in the sixth to bring Redwood City within one, and Danny Molinari later doubled in two more to give Redwood City the lead.

Palo Alto National began the game very strong, scoring eight runs in the first three innings. Kenta Yanagisawa homered in the both the first and second innings for a combined five runs and Corey Bicknell hit an RBI double in the third inning. However, trailing 8-2, Redwood City went to the bullpen to bring in Belanger, who pitched the final 3 2/3 innings, allowing just one run.

The loss eliminates Palo Alto National from the District 52 Tournament, following the team's loss to Half Moon Bay in the tournament opener.
