PORTLAND – The Dalles Little League 10U All Stars were one inning from a perfect record and a semifinals berth.
As it is, the Stars lost their opening game to Hollywood/Rose City by a 12-8 score on Saturday, but rebounded for consecutive lopsided wins over Ashland and Del Norte, Calif. by a combined 25-5 margin to inch a step closer to playing in Thursday’s championship rounds at the Oregon State Championships in Portland.
In these past two victories, the Stars have racked up 24 hits, received 18 walks and had five hitters hit by pitches.
Another big difference is the Stars are getting the clutch hits in key moments, whereas in Saturday’s first game, they totaled 13 hits, received seven walks and a had a batter hit by a pitch, but stranded 10 base runners, six in scoring position.
