Potnick fires gem, but SLT loses in 7th

It was a typical Little League postseason baseball game: The pitchers dominated and runs were as scarce as parking spots at Harveys Resort & Casino.

South Lake Tahoe ace Alex Potnick matched Sparks Centennial’s No. 1 pitcher goose egg for goose egg. But after Potnick exited the game after the sixth inning, Sparks broke through with five runs in the seventh to win the Little League 11-12 All-Star District Tournament game late Monday in Carson City.

Leo Trebotich knocked in South Lake Tahoe’s only run with a late-inning single, extending the game into extra innings. But Sparks hit a pair of home runs in the seventh to put away Tahoe.

South Lake Tahoe’s offensive attack also included a double by Jake Braun and singles by Rylan Tepper and Colton Marchesseault.

South Lake Tahoe will continue pool play today when it meets Reno American East at 8 p.m. at Governor’s Field.
