Claiming the section title sent the Rush to the Nor Cal Divisional Tournament in Chowchilla last week where they  finished with a 2-2 record in the double-elimination tournament.

Rush started the tournament by beating Livermore, 9-5. Tyler Reyes hit two home runs for the Rush and went 3-for-3. CJ Pallari used a blend of fastballs and off-speed pitches to keep Livermore batters off-balance. Rhys Kennedy, Pallari and Kyle Maechler went 2-for-2 each. On the mound, Pallari, Maechler and Reyes allowed seven hits.

The victory moved the Rush into the winner’s bracket but they were edged by Oakland, 12-11. The Rush had rallied from a 12-7 deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning. Pallari smacked a home run in the game. El Dorado Hills finished with 14 hits in the game. Kennedy, Maechler, Reyes and Pallari had three hits each. Kennedy had two doubles, Maechler had two singles, Reyes two doubles and Pallari two singles in addition to his home run. Oakland had nine hits, six of which were home runs.

The Rush came back to blank Patterson/Salida, 12-0. Bryson Smith, Garett Mook and Alonzo Wandell took turns on the hill for the Rush in the game. Maechler hit a three-run home run and Kennedy also smacked a dinger.

However, the season came to an abrupt end for the Rush, who played Livermore again but this time losing 14-3. Pallari had a home run in the game.

Rush manager Bill Kennedy was very pleased with his team’s performance in Chowchilla.

“Overall great defense,” Rush manager Bill Kennedy said. “Great speed and base running.”

This is EDHLL’s inaugural year of including an intermediate 50-70 baseball team. The 50-70 stands for 50 feet from the pitcher’s mound to the batter and 70 feet between bases which is more distance than the majors but not quite as far as in the juniors.

Rush team member Jake Malaney, 13, said he’s thrilled to continue playing and excited about his team’s success.

“Rush is my best experience as a Little League baseball player,” he said. “Our team always picks each other up.”

Members of the Rush are: Kennedy, Maechler, Reyes, Pallari, Malaney, Nick Grebe, Brant Paylor, Tyler Salcido, Alonzo Wandell,Garret Mook, Bryson Smith and Cole Ramsey.
