Palo Alto 4, Alameda 1
Date of competition: Monday, July 20, 2009
The offense wasn't booming, but it was enough to send the Palo Alto 14-year-old all stars on in the Northern California state tournament. Despite only four hits, Palo Alto defeated Alameda 4-1 on Monday night at Clark Field in Woodland.
Palo Alto got great performances from its pitching staff, allowing one run in the top of the first, and then shutting out Alameda from then on. Clay Carey started the game for Palo Alto, throwing five strong innings to get the win. Carey was relieved by Curly Kadash who got the save, not allowing Alameda a late inning comeback.
As dominant as Carey was on the mound, he also had one of Palo Alto's rare hits, a double in the first inning for an RBI.
Palo Alto struck for two runs in the first to take the lead and coasted to victory from there. Palo Alto added another run in the second and a final insurance run in the fourth. However, with the pitching staff as good as it was, little offensive support was needed.
