Sitka All-Stars no-hit Petersburg, lose to Juneau rally

LittleLeagueMajors_500
Five Sitka pitchers combined for a no-hitter on Monday, in the Major League Division of the District Two tournament in Wrangell.

Aedon Dumag, Morgan Simic, JusOran McGraw, Gavin Flores, and Reese Greenough held Petersburg to no hits over six innings.

Left-fielder Dominic Baciocco saved the no-hitter with a diving catch for the last out of the game. Sitka won 13-0.

The Sitka All-Stars also decisively beat Ketchikan on Sunday 12-4, and appeared on their way to dominating the 6-team round robin tournament.

Their luck changed, however, midway through Tuesday’s game against Juneau.

Bryce Kelley launched a grand slam in the first inning, and Sitka added five more runs to take a nine-run lead early in the game. Going into the sixth, the All-Stars held a comfortable lead of 10-4, but it unraveled in the bottom of the inning. Juneau rallied to win 11-10.

Sitka takes on Wrangell at 6 PM this evening, and faces Prince of Wales at 3 PM on Thursday. There will be a four-team playoff on Saturday, and a final on Sunday. The winning team will remain in Wrangell and play the Division One champion for the state title, in a five-game series next week.

If you need a dose of baseball closer to home, there’s Little League action all week in Sitka. The Junior League tournament is underway at Moller Field, with games every afternoon.
