Juneau’s 13 and 14 year old little league All Stars defeated Sitka Wednesday night to claim the 2016 Junior Division little league district title.
Sitka Radio Center's Larry Snider reports:
"Juneau swept the first two games of the best of three series in two straight games. Juneau lead off hitter Gabe Storie was hit by a pitch with the first pitch of the ballgame and Christian Ludeman followed up with a single and both scored – and Juneau’s Junior Division All Stars never looked back. It wasn’t a good night for the home team Sitka Junior Division All Stars. After the Sitka Stars answered Juneau’s two run top of the first with a run of their own thanks to a Dom Bachoco single- to make it 2 to 1 Juneau after one inning – it was ALL Juneau the rest of the way. Sitka pitchers gave up 10 walks and hit three batters and Sitka fielders committed 9 errors as the Juneau All Stars rolled to a 16 to 2 win in a game that ended after five innings with the 10-run “mercy rule”. When the dust had settled the Juneau All Stars scored their 16 runs on 10 hits, including two doubles and a single via the Juneau All Stars clean up hitter Olin Rowson. It was just four hits for Sitka."
