Reno pitcher one-hits 9-10 All-Stars

South Lake Tahoe’s 9-10 All-Stars won their first three games of the district tournament with good pitching and hitting.

On Thursday their opponent – Reno National – demonstrated those skills in posting an 11-0 pool play win at Shadow Mountain Complex in Sparks.

“They pitched a kid who won a pitch, hit and run contest down here and he did a number on us,” said South Lake Tahoe skipper Kevin Higgins.

Cody Higgins collected South Lake Tahoe’s lone hit, a single to right-center in the second inning.

South Lake Tahoe mounted a serious threat in the fourth inning, loading the bases with a pair of walks and an error, but Reno ecaped the jam.

Leo Trebotich pitched three innings for South Lake Tahoe and Tyler Sharp worked one.

Despite the loss, South Lake Tahoe advanced to the quarterfinals as a third seed. The All-Stars will play an opponent to be determined at 8 p.m. tonight.

Saturday’s’ semifinals are at 11 a.m. and the finals are set for 2 p.m. Sunday.
