After giving up an early lead in their first game of the Northern California state tournament, the Palo Alto Babe Ruth 14-year-old all stars made sure not make the same mistake twice. On Sunday, Palo Alto ensured its lead by ending the game early, defeating Elk Grove 10-0 in Woodland.

With the game already well in hand, Palo Alto hit the ten-run threshold in the sixth inning, ending the game an inning short. With the win, Palo Alto advances to play in another win-or-go-home game on Monday at five. Palo Alto's oppenent will be the loser of Sonoma and Alameda.

From the first inning, Palo Alto displayed its dominance, scoring three runs in the first inning. Palo Alto added two more in both the second and third innings before adding the final three runs in the fifth and sixth. Nick Wells had his second multi-hit game of the tournament and starter Ben Sneider helped his own cause with a stand-up triple.

Sneider need little help from the offensive in his four innings of work. Over those four innings, Sneider was nearly perfect, allowing no hits and only one walk. Curly Kadash, who replaced Sneider to save him innings for later in the tournament, pitched equally effectively, combining with Sneider for a no-hitter.
