Yuma, Arizona found holes in Palo Alto's usually tight defense and pounded 16 hits to gain a 12-8 victory in Saturday night's second round game at the Babe Ruth 13 Pacific Southwest Region Championships. Palo Alto's uncharacteristically shoddy play provided a stark contrast to the beautiful summer evening in Richfield, Utah. The team committed five errors and left 10 runners on base. Palo Alto's BJ Boyd delivered another strong game with two hits, including a triple, three runs scored, and continued stellar play in center field. Freddy Avis had three hits, including an RBI double. Jake Batchelder (a single and an RBI double) and Jordan Piha (two doubles with an RBI) also bolstered the Palo Alto attack. Batchelder started on the mound for Palo Alto, and was relieved by Sam Falkenhagen and Kyle Zerbes. Zerbes, in particular, pitched bravely, but was the victim of inopportune defensive miscues. Banging out 11 hits and receiving eight walks, Palo Alto certainly had its opportunities. The team plays next on Tuesday in the consolation bracket aaginst the winner of Taylorsville, Utah and host Richfield.
