Alameda 5, Palo Alto 13s 3
Date of competition: Tuesday, July 21, 2009
The baseball season is over for the Palo Alto Babe Ruth 13-year old all-stars following a 5-3 loss to host Alameda in the consolation semifinals of the Northern California State Tournament on Tuesday at College of Alameda.
Palo Alto grabbed a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but couldn't hold it as Alameda charged back to grab a 5-2 advantage in the bottom of the fifth.
Palo Alto got a run back in the top of the sixth when Chris Lee singled, stole second and advanced to third on a single by Alec Furrier. When Furrier took off for second to start a double steal, Lee scampered home with a run while Furrier was being thrown out at second base.
Palo Alto made a final attempt to pull out the victory by getting the potential runs at second and third in the top of the seventh with just one out. Christian Kurtella ripped a shot down the third-base line that was caught for the second out and a foul popout ended the threat and the game.
