GRASS VALLEY — Four games in three days were played by the El Dorado Post 119 Junior Legion baseball team in the District 7 American Legion Tournament at Nevada Union High.

In the end Post 119 played for the tourney championship. But Grass Valley Post 130 ended Post 119′s winning season with a 6-0 victory. Grass Valley advances to the Area Tournament.

The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third inning when Post 130 scored their first run on a single, stolen base and two passed balls.

Grass Valley added its final two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning off four hits, including a double.

El Dorado (22-12-1) had four hits in the game, all singles. Brendan McKillop, Joel Predretti, RJ Blake and Zachary Bartelme had a hit each for Post 119.

El Dorado 14, Bear River 13

Prior to its championship game, El Dorado had some unfinished business with Bear River in the loser’s bracket game.

The game ended to a 12-all tie after eight innings on Friday that was called by umpires because of darkness. Action resumed Saturday morning in the top of the ninth. Bear River took a 13-12 lead in the frame that was aided by three singles and a walk.

But Post 119 rallied in the bottom of the ninth with one out. Matthew Gould doubled to left field. Ronnie Hartje pinched-run for Gould, as Bartelme singled, also to left field, to put runners at first and third bases.

Then Predretti doubled to left field that drove in Hartje to tie the game. El Dorado head coach Brett Robinson gave Bartelme the green light to touch third base and go home, where he sled safely ahead of the throw for the winning run.

Gould, Bartelme, Predretti and Brendan Hunter had three hits each for Post 119.

El Dorado 4, Grass Valley 9

In their first meeting in the winner’s bracket Friday, Grass Valley busted open a 5-2 lead with four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning off three hits — including a double to left field — and three walks.

El Dorado scored a run in the first, third, fourth and sixth innings. Blake scored two of the runs for Post 119, as he reached base on two singles. Hunter and Predretti, who both walked, scored the other two runs for Post 119.

Both teams combined for 19 hits; El Dorado had eight and Grass Valley 11. Blake was 2-for-3. Nate Brown,Gould, Bartelme, Hartje, Tim Salemi and Predretti had a hit each.

El Dorado 4, Auburn 0

Greg Alloway threw a one-hitter, striking out four and walking three. Blake pitched the final inning in Thursday’s first District tourney game.

Salemi had a double in the game. Blake, Hunter and Brown had RBIs.

More about Post 119′s winning season will be in Wednesday’s issue of the Mountain Democrat.
