The road to the 2015 Little League World Series just got one victory closer for Sweetwater Valley’s 12U all-star team after the newly crowned California District 42 champions walloped District 66 champion Lemon Grove, 10-0, in the opening game of the California Section 7 tournament Tuesday at West Hills Little League.

For the fifth consecutive time, Sweetwater Valley ended a game by the 10-run mercy rule.

Sweetwater Valley played just 16 innings in winning all four of its district games, including last Saturday’s crowning 14-0 win over Park View to unfurl this year’s district championship banner.

Jake Baptista collected two RBI and Nat Nankil smacked a 300-foot home run to lead Sweetwater Valley in Tuesday’s shortened contest against Lemon Grove. Nankil’s monster blast gave the D42 champs a 9-0 lead in the game.

Sweetwater Valley advances to Wednesday’s winners bracket contest against District 41 champion Rancho San Diego following RSD’s 3-1 victory against District 22 champion Calexico in Tuesday’s other section opener.

In Tuesday’s RSD win, pitcher Vencel Yousif chalked up 13 strikeouts.

SVLL and RSD will collide on the diamond starting at 6:30 p.m. at Fletcher Hills Little League. The winner of Wednesday’s game advances to the section championship game scheduled for Friday, July 17, at 6:30 p.m. at Fletcher Hills Little League.

The loser of Wednesday’s game drops to the single-elimination challenger bracket.

The first consolation game is scheduled Wednesday at 6 p.m. at West Hills Little League between Calexico and Lemon Grove. The winner of Wednesday’s game advances to Thursday’s challenger bracket final against the loser of Wednesday’s Sweetwater Valley-Rancho SD contest.

A potential double-elimination championship game would be played Saturday, July 18, also at 6:30 p.m. at Fletcher Hills Little League.

The Section 7 champion advances to the sub-division playoffs July 23-30 hosted by California District 68.

District 42 champions sweep California Section 7 openers

All three newly-minted California District 42 Little League champions won their opening games in the California Section 7 tournament that started earlier this week.

In fact, Sweetwater Valley’s 12U team did even better by winning its opening two games to advance to Friday’s section championship game.

Chula Vista American’s 11U all-star team defeated District 22 champion Calexico, 13-5, in Wednesday’s section opener at the CV American LL complex, joining District 41 champion Rancho San Diego in Thursday’s winners bracket final after RSD run-ruled District 66 champion Valley de Oro 15-5.

Sweetwater Valley’s 12U all-stars opened section play with a 10-0 mercy-rule victory over District 66 champion Lemon Grove Tuesday at West Hills Little League and continued their hot streak by defeating District 41 champion Rancho San Diego, 20-5, in Wednesday’s winners bracket final at Fletcher Hills Little League.

SVLL slammed six home runs in the opening inning to lead 10-0 in Wednesday’s winners bracket encounter.

Meanwhile, Sweetwater Valley’s 10U all-stars topped District 66 champion Valley de Oro, 14-7, in Tuesday’s section opener at Spring Valley Little League to advance to Friday’s winners bracket final against District 41 champion Cajon de Oro.

Highlight reel

Kyle Chapman’s two-run home run in the first inning boosted CV American to an early 2-0 lead over Calexico. CVA went up 7-3 on the strength of a five-run third inning and tacked on four more runs in the top of the fifth inning to zoom in front 11-3. The teams then traded two runs each in the two innings.

CV American sent nine batters to the plate in the third inning, trying the game on a bases-loaded walk to Aaron DeCasas, scoring two runs on wild pitches, another on a double steal and one run on a RBI-single by Christian Lizarraga.

Bret Leonhardt and DeCasas each were credited with two-run RBI singles in the fifth inning uprising while Kellin Ince and Leonhardt each picked up RBI singles in the sixth inning.

DeCasas, the second of five CVA pitchers in the game, picked up the win.

“We had a lot of base hits and aggressive base running,” CVA manager Javier Aguirre explained. “I think because of our aggressive base running that we put pressure on their pitcher and defense.”

Sweetwater Valley’s 12U all-stars — er, wrecking crew — continued to pound opponents with the long ball.

Antonio Andrade hit two homers in the first inning alone, including the first on the first pitch of the game, and added another homer in the third inning for three for the night. Dante Schmid hit a grand slam homer in the first inning and capped the SVLL scoring parade with a two-run homer in the top of the fourth inning. Ari Armas, Preston Fleming and Levi Mendez also hit solo home runs in the first inning run explosion.

Braiz Ramirez and Jake Baptista also contributed to the SVLL scoring parade with two-run triples.

Sweetwater Valley hit eight home runs in the game and now has hit 31 home runs in six games while out-scoring its opponents 109-6. The District 42 champions have only allowed 10 hits in six games. Andrade and Mendez each pitched two innings on Wednesday. They gave up a combined three hits.

All six games have ended after four innings due to the mercy rule.

“The rally monkey, Stars & Stripes, continues to work,” SVLL manager Ward Lannom said.

Rancho SD’s win in the 11U section opener also featured standout hitting. Paolo Medina hit a grand slam home run in the first inning to help power the Dawgs to an early 5-0 advanrtage while Wyatt Laub hit a walk-off two-run shot to end the game by virtue of the 10-run mercy rule.

Laub started the game, with Ethan Heider earning the win in relief. Weston Clark scored three runs for RSD in the blowout win.

Bombs away! Sweetwater Valley 12U all-stars blast way to Section 7 championship title

Explosive starts have defined Sweetwater Valley’s all-star tournament performances thus far, and Friday’s California Section 7 championship game against District 41 champion Rancho San Diego was no different. The game featured 10 home runs by Sweetwater Valley.

Sweetwater Valley blasted in front 4-0 in the bottom of the first inning as Antonio Andrade homered on a 3-1 count, Levi Mendez followed with a first-pitch home run to double the SVLL lead to 2-0. Walker Lannom then doubled and came home on a triple by Dante Schmid, the starting pitcher. Schmid came home on an ensuing single by Ari Armas.

Sweetwater Valley led, 7-0, after two innings.

Mendez hit his second home run of the game to make the score 5-0. Nate Nankil followed with a double, moved to third base on a sacrifice fly by Walker and scored on a wild pitch to up the score to 6-0 in Sweetwater Valley’s favor. Back-to-back doubles by Jake Baptista and Schmid raise the SVLL lead to 7-0.

Rancho SD put a dent in the SVLL lead in the top of the third inning on a three-run home run by Mario Johnson. However, Sweetwater Valley still led 7-3.

The District 42 champions pounced all over RSD pitching in the bottom of the third inning to essentially put the game out of reach. The frame featured six home runs by Sweetwater Valley.

Braiz Ramirez homered to put SVLL ahead 8-3. Mark Cervantes singled and was replaced by a pinch runner prior to a second home run of the game by Andrade. Sweetwater Valley led 10-3 but the fireworks were just starting in the inning.

Mendez hit his third home run of the game: 11-3 SVLL. Nankil followed with a home run: 12-3 SVLL. Walker hit a home run: 13-3 SVLL.

Count ’em up: that’s four consecutive home runs!

Baptista doubled and came around on a home run by Isaac Artalejo: 15-3 SVLL.

All this without an out recorded yet in the explosive inning.

Andrade came to the plate again in the frame and his line shot knocked the glove off the shortstop trying to stop it.

Braeden Ross countered with a grand slam home run in the top of the fourth inning for RSD, but it was not nearly enough.

Ahead 15-7, Sweetwater Valley ended yet another game by the 10-run mercy rule. A pair of singles in the bottom of the fourth inning set the stage Schmid’s dramatic game-ending, section-winning homer.

Celebration – or was in pandemonium? — promptly ensued when Schmid circled the base paths to finally touch home plate.

Sweetwater Valley advances to the Southern California-South Sub-Division III tournament that starts Saturday, July 25, at Ladera Ranch. Sweetwater Valley plays the Section 9 winner at 11 a.m.

The four-team double-elimination tournament also includes champions from Section 6 (Rancho Buena Vista or Encinitas) and Section 8. The sub-division championship game is scheduled Wednesday, July 29, at 5 p.m.

District 31 champion Encinitas defeated District 70 champion Rancho Buena Vista, 3-1, in Monday’s  Section 6 championship game at Escondido National Little League.

Rancho San Diego advanced to Friday’s section championship game after eliminating Calexico, 9-6, in Thursday’s challenger bracket final.

Sweetwater Valley repeats as Section 7 champions. The team advanced as far as the SoCal-South Sub-Division III tournament last year before dropping games to Encintas Little League and 2011 Little League World Series champion Ocean View Little League.

Encinitas defeated Ocean View, 9-6, to win last year’s SoCal-South Sub-Division III title and then went on to defeat Long Beach in the Southern Califonria Division III championship series to represent Southern California in the West Region finals in 2014.

West Region champion Miountain Ridge (Las Vegas) Little Leauge was declared the 2014 LLWS U.S. champion after Great Lakes region Jackie Robinson West was retroactively forced to forfeit all its games due to the use of ineligible players from outsided the Chicago area.

Chula Vista American 11U all-stars advance to Saturday’s Section 7 championship game

Chula Vista American stayed in the winners bracket following a 19-4 victory over Rancho San Diego on Thursday to advance to Saturday’s championship game.

Chula Vista American scored six runs in bottom of first inning on five hits, including a two-run home run by Kyle Chapman to get on the scoreboard first.

Rancho San Diego scored one run in top of the second inning, but Chula Vista American responded by scoring five more runs in the bottom of the frame on six hits, including a double by Devin Hinojosa and a three-run home run by Bret Leonhardt, to go surge ahead 11-1.

When Chula Vista American changed pitchers in top of the third inning,  Rancho San Diego capitalized on the situation by scoring three runs. But Chula Vista American came back in the bottom of the thdrd inning to score eight runs, including a grand slam by Christian Leyva, to jump to a 19-4 lead.

Leonhardt entered the game in relief in the top of the fourth inning and shut out RSD’s offense to end the game.

Hinojosa started the game for Chula Vista American. He pitched two innings, allowing two hits and one unearned run while posting three strikeouts.

Chula Vista American’s offense combined for 10 singles, two doubles and three home runs.?CV American’s three pitchers allowed three earned runs, gave up four hits and four walks and posted four strikeouts in four innings.

CV American advances to Saturday’s championship game (10 a.m. start) against the winner of Friday’s challenger bracket final between Rancho SD and Valley de Oro.

Valley de Oro eliminated Calexico, 15-5, in Thursday’s challenger bracket game.

Sweetwater Valley advances to Sunday’s 10U Section 7 championship game

Sweetwater Valley shut out Cajon de Oro, 9-0, in Friday’s winners bracket game at Spring Valley Little League to advance to Sunday’s section championship game against the winner of Saturday’s challenger bracket final between Cajon de Oro and Valley de Oro.

Sweetwater Valley improved to 2-0 in the four team double-elimination tournament.

Sunday’s championship game is scheduled at 3 p.m. at Spring Valley Little League.

Sweetwater Valley jumped out to an early lead on Cajon De Oro with six runs in the first three innings to put the game away early.

An RBI triple by Elijah Cook (his eighth in all-star tournament play), an RBI single by Nicholas Fahme (his ninth), a three-run home run by Hunter Stencil (his fourth home run to go with 15 RBI), and an RBI single by Ty Besker (his eighth RBI) in the second inning supplied the early offense for Sweetwater Valley.

Dominic Nankil also had a hot bat for the District 42 champions. He went 3-for-4 and scored two runs. He singled in the first and second innings and tripled in the fourth inning.

Nico Libed brought the heat against Cajon De Oro during his outing. Cajon De Oro managed just two hits off. Libed allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out six (20 strikeouts overall in all-star duty) during his three-and-one-third innings of work.

Sweetwater Valley LL increased its lead with three runs in the fourth inning. A sacrifice fly scored Nankil for the inning’s first run.

CALIFORNIA DISTRICT 42 CHAMPIONSHIPS

Sweetwater Valley slams opponents to claim District 42 Little League banner

Sweetwater Valley sewed up this year’s district championship by defeating Park View 14-0. Prior to that, SVLL pummeled Imperial Beach, 18-0, in the winners bracket final on July 9 after opening tourney play with 28-0 and 19-1 victories against Chula Vista American and Park View, respectively.

All four Sweetwater Valley games ended with mercy-rule victories after four innings.

Antonio Andrade led off Saturday’s championship game with a first pitch home run. Levi Mendez followed by hitting the second pitch to him (third pitch of the game) over the fence for another home run.

Before the first frame was finished, Sweetwater Valley held an 11-0 lead.

The District 42 champions cracked four home runs in the game.

In the championship game, Mendez went 3-for-3 with a home run, Walker Lannom went 3-for-3 with a home run while Preston Fleming hit a grand slam home run.

As good as the hitting was, the pitching was even better as Dante Schmid and Andrade combined for a no-hit shutout.

Schmid threw the opening three innings while Andrade closed out the game out by throwing the fourth inning.

The terrorizing run to the district championship took everyone’s breath away, including team members.

“Winning district feels great as this was our first goal,” SVLL manager Ward Lannom said. “I am very happy for the players as this team has something special.

“The numbers above are great, but the caliber of play just increased. The next goal is to get the Section 7 championship. Let’s hope our offense stays as productive at the next level as it was during district. One game at a time, next stop West Hills.”

Park View (11U), Sweetwater Valley (10U) force double-elimination district championship games

Chula Vista American and Park View were the last two teams left standing in this year’s California District 42 Little League 11U all-star tournament. The teams met three times in the four-team double-elimination tournament, with CV American winning the final and most important match-up, 9-8, on Sunday to advance to this week’s California Section 7 championship tournament.

“It was draining emotionally with all these three games,” CVA manager Javier Aguirre explained. “You didn’t know what to expect. It was great that we came back to win this final game. I have to say that Park View was a great opponent.”

All three games between the teams proved to be epic struggles – each decided by one run.

In previous encounters, Park View used a walk-off three-run home run by Ben Wood to defeat Park View, 9-8, in a winners bracket game on July 6. Park View staved off elimination in last Saturday’s championship game with an 11-10 victory in seven innings to force Sunday’s double-elimination game.

Sunday’s double-elimination game was the most nerve-racking of the three for the eventual district champions after Park View took a 7-0 lead after just two innings.

“We came back slowly and then we went ahead, 8-7, but couldn’t hold it,” Aguirre said. “They tied it, 8-8, on a home run.”

CV American captured the district banner in dramatic fashion as Kyle Chapman hit the winning home run in the bottom of the fifth inning. Wood, who came in relief, pitched the final four innings to pick up the win.

“Ben kept us in the game,” Aguirre said. “They were all hard-fought games. All the games went back and forth, every game.”

The District 42 champions start Section 7 play Wednesday with a home game against District 22 champion Calexico at 5:30 p.m. at the CV American Little League complex at Hilltop Middle School.The section tournament wraps up with the championship game on Saturday, July 18, at 10 a.m. at CVALL.

If a double-elimination championship game is needed, it would be played Sunday, July 19, at 11 a.m. at the same site.

Come what may, Chula Vista American Little League president LeRoy Donaldson acknowledged the hard work and dedication all the players and coaches have put forth to advance this far.

“These players know that they have a uphill battle as they face different Little League teams from Southern California,” Donaldson said. “However, they are ready for these challenges.”

Chula Vista American had a chance to wrap up this year’s district championship on Saturday, needing just one more victory, while Park View needed two wins to secure the section championship.

Park View came prepared for the long haul, leading until CV American tied the game. “We came back with a grand slam but we couldn’t hold it, and they won it in the seventh inning,” Aquirre said.

Park View scored three runs in the first inning and four runs in the second inning to start off with a 7-0 lead. Wood came into the game in relief in the third inning and held Park View’s offense to one run the rest of the way.

Chula Vista American scored two runs in the bottom of the third inning on a two-run home run by Christian Leyva and took the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning by scoring six runs to lead 8-7. Highlights included a bases-clearing triple by Carlo Salvatierra for three runs.

Park View responded in the top of the fifth inning by tying the game 8-8 with a solo home run, but Chula Vista American responded in the bottom of the fifth with Kyle Chapman’s homer totake back the lead at 9-8.

Wood got the last three outs of the game in the sixth inning by allowing only one more Park View batter to reach first base.

Chula Vista American won last year’s 10U district championship and also went on to capture the Section7 title. The team advanced as far as the Southern California-South Sub-Division III championship tournament.

Aguirre felt the move up to the 11U would be equally successful.

“It’s the same group of kids we had last year,” the CVA manager said. “They’re a good hitting team and we have better pitching this year.”

THREE-GAME WINNING STREAK PUTS SVLL OVER THE TOP IN DRAMATIC COMEBACK SHOWING

There’s no doubt that Sweetwater Valley Little League 10U all-star team received its share of competition in this year’s California District 42 tournament before emerging with the championship banner.

Sweetwater Valley won its opening two games in this year’s eight-team double-elimination tournament to advance to the winners bracket final against a likewise undefeated Imperial Beach team on July 9. Imperial Beach won, 6-3, in a seven-inning nail-biter to secure a berth in last weekend’s championship game.

Sweetwater Valley thus faced the unenviable task of winning three consecutive games to win the district banner while Imperial Beach needed only one more win.

Sweetwater Valley kept its championship dream alive by battling back to defeat Eastlake, 7-2, in last Friday’s challenger bracket final at the Sweetwater Valley Little League complex. Hunter Stencil led the winners with three RBI while starting pitcher Glen Huggins struck out five batters. The win advanced Sweetwater Valley to what amounted to a two-game championship showdown against Imperial Beach.

Sweetwater won Saturday’s game, 11-1, to force a championship replay on Sunday that Sweetwater Valley also won 15-8.

“After losing to Imperial Beach in the winners bracket game, I told the kids we had a big task ahead of us,” SVLL manager Kelly Besker explained. “We had to beat Eastlake a second time to get to championship on Saturday. We had to win three games in three days to win the whole thing. I told them we were a good enough team to get those three wins, but that they needed to play baseball the way they were capable of playing. If they played good sound baseball like they knew they could, we would be holding up a championship banner.”

The competition was on, in other words.

“We beat Eastlake and we knew we had an opportunity to show Imperial Beach we deserved to be in the championship games,” Besker said. “We went out and pretty much dominated the Saturday championship game. The kids were hungry and fired up to get the win to move onto Sunday’s ‘if game.’

“Before the game Sunday we spoke to the boys in the dugout about breaking the game down into single-inning games — the idea is to win more of those innings than the other team. I told them how proud I was for them playing their way into the championship game.

“This was one of those small times in life we will look back on and remember for getting to the championship game. I told them how much I enjoyed watching them play baseball together and how proud I was to be involved in a small part of their lives as their baseball coach.”

Saturday’s game was decided quickly as Sweetwater Valley exerted its will to win with nine runs in the first three innings.

A three-run home run by Stencil in the first inning and a two-run single by Nicolas Fahme during the second inning supplied the team’s early offense.

Stencil racked up three RBI on three hits for SVLL in the game.

Nico Libed allowed one run over two-and-two-thirds innings. He struck out three, walked none and surrendered two hits.

Sweetwater Valley piled up four runs in the top of the third inning. Jayson Smith singled, scoring Troy Fleming to start the frame. Elijah Cook doubled to bring home Chance Krueger and Smith.

SVLL increased its lead with two more runs in the fourth inning. Dominic Nankil singled to get things going, plating Libed.

Sweetwater Valley defeated Imperial Beach in a shootout on Sunday to win the district championship. The teams lit up the scoreboard by combining for 23 runs.

The elder Besker noted that hitters on both sides were strong at the plate, as the teams combined for 26 hits, including seven extra base hits. Sweetwater Valley racked up 15 hits, including four extra-base hits.

Sweetwater Valley scored three runs in the top of the first inning, braced by a by a two-run home run by Stencil, but IB held a 6-3 advantage after plating six runs in the bottom of the second inning.

It proved to be a battle from there, with Sweetwater Valley scoring three times in the top of the third inning and four times in the top of the fourth inning to take a 10-6 lead. SVLL tacked on three runs in the sixth inning on an RBI triple by Libed, an error and an RBI double by Nankil.

The teams traded runs for most of the contest, leading to five lead changes in the game.

“We began playing and there was a shift in momentum early — first for us and then against us,” the SVLL manager said. “The kids showed great resilience and a never-give-up attitude as they kept plugging along and chipping away, and eventually got the job done. They have great character and have come together very well as a baseball team. Sunday was another great team win to win the district championship.

“We will move forward and continue to strive to win one inning at a time in our quest to win the Section 7 championship.”

Kasey Regala got the win in relief for Sweetwater Valley by pitching three innings while allowing one run. Libed, Nankil, Stencil and Fahme combined for eight hits and six RBI.
