The Palo Alto Oaks needed a doubleheader sweep to guarantee a spot in the 2009 Stan Musial state playoffs and did just that on Sunday by taking two from the Menlo Park Legends at the Baylands Athletic Center. The Oaks won the first game, 5-4, behind pitchers Jason Kleinhoffer and Ricky Navarro.

In the first game, both teams exchanged single runs in the first two innings. Menlo Park then took a 3-2 lead in the fourth on a passed ball. The Oaks answered in the fifth when Evan Warner led off the inning with a single. Jeff Ramirez followed with another single and, after a strikeout, Bryan Beres knocked in Warner with a single.

Skylar Brewer then doubled to score both Ramirez and Beres with what proved to be the game-winning hit. This was the second game-winning hit for Brewer in as many weeks. His extra-inning home run against Fontanetti's last week provided the Oaks with the winning run and split.

Kleinhoffer got to the seventh with two outs before coach Steve Espinoza inserted Navarro with the bases loaded. After Navarro beaned the first batter he faced to allow one run to score, he shut down the Legends over the last two innings to earn the save.
