El Dorado Hills Giants’ manager PC Pallari was proud of hit team’s effort at the plate in the District 54 Little League Major Division’s Tournament of Champions’ semifinal game against the Woodcreek A’s Thursday at Rotary Park.

After the A’s jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the top of the first inning, the Giants responded in the bottom of the frame to cut the deficit to 8-2. But the A’s continued their dominance at the plate to post a 17-3 victory over the Giants in the single-elimination tournament. The game was called after four innings because of the mercy rule.

“The big picture is that these guys have come so far,” Pallari said. “We battled through adversity; we battled through illnesses and injuries. I’m very proud of them.”

The A’s had two home runs, including a lead-off shot over the center field fence, a triple, two doubles, three singles and two walks to highlight the first inning.

The Giants’ Anthony Pallari smoked a double to center field in the bottom of the first inning and scored when Tino Bethancourt hit a home run that went over the center field fence. Joe Joster reached first base on an error but the A’s recorded two strikeouts to end the Giants’ threat.

El Dorado Hills scored its last run in the bottom of the second. Jake Mitchell led off with a single and scored on Vin Mini’s sacrifice fly to left field.

The A’s finished with 13 hits. The Giants had seven. Mitchell was 2-for-2 with two singles and an RBI. Dom Martarella was also 2-for-2.
