Giants claim Babe Ruth title

Tribune Staff Report

South Tahoe Plumbing Supply’s Giants had everything and everyone working in unison in the South Tahoe Babe Ruth 13-14 finals Wednesday night at Todd Fields.

The Giants had seven players deliver two or more hits, and Jordan Lucas and Tyson Frederick combined on a two-hitter as they trashed the South Tahoe Refuse Rangers 18-2 for the championship.

Nick Aguilar and Nick Martin led a high-powered attack with three hits. Lucas, Frederick, Leon Abravanel, Alex Swearingen and Joey Byne chipped in a pair of hits.

Byne delivered a two-run double during the third inning, but it was the fourth frame where the Giants asserted themselves, scoring eight times to break the game open.

The Rangers played with only eight players after the third inning as starting pitcher Robert Spees suffered an eye injury on a missed pop fly. Hence, the Rangers continued with two outfielders instead of three.

Lucas only allowed hits to Brandon Tinlin and Justin Osborne through five innings. He struck out seven. Kyle Olsen had both Ranger RBIs.

Frederick tossed two hitless innings, striking out three.
