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.
