In terms of tough losses, the Palo Alto 14-year-old all stars was certainly amoung the toughest. After battling back from an opening round loss in the Northern California state tournament, and winning the next four straight games to reach the championship, Palo Alto fell to Hayward 1-0 in the tenth inning on Thursday night at Clark Field in Woodland.

After blanking Hayward for nine straight innings, all it took was one misplayed flyball and one hit for Hayward to score the only run of the game and claim the Northern California title.

After getting 28 hits over the past two games, Palo Alto's offense disappeared. Palo Alto threatened to score in the first inning when it loaded the bases with no outs. After failing to score in the first, Palo Alto did not come close to scoring until the tenth.

Needing a run to extend the game, Christian Kadash got to first base. With one out, Justin Grey crushed a double to left-center field, and Kadash tried to score from first. Unfortunately for Palo Alto, Kadash was thrown out at home. A groundout later and Hayward was champion.

Continuing for the fifth straight game, Palo Alto got outstanding pitching. Ben Sneider started the game and threw the maximum seven innings, shuting out Hayward. Tyler VauDell then relieved Sneider, throwing the final three innings without allowing an earned run.
