CA Juniors victorious in first round TOC Game 10-7



The Cupertino American Nationals won an exciting come-from-behind win over the Moreland/CA Indians, 10-7 in the first round of the Juniors Division TOC.

 

After the Indians jumped out to first inning 5-0 lead, CA Nationals pitcher Tatsumi Eng settled down with an outstanding pitching performance, holding the Indians scoreless over the next 3+ innings.  The Nationals started the comeback in the second inning with a Justin Shin walk and Arul Gnanasivam single.  Trevor Weidner had an RBI groundout to score Shin, and Anurag Vedagiri had a clutch two-out single to score Gnanasivam.

 

In the top of the 5th, Jonathan Wu started a 4-run rally with hustle and grit.  Wu got on with an infield single, and following a error on the Indians pitcher on a fielders choice trying to get the lead runner and an out, Shin hit an opposite field 2-run single scoring Wu and Eng (who reached on the Fielders Choice).  One out later, Weidner a clutch 2-out 2-run single scoring Civilikas (who was hit-by-pitch) and Shin, to give the Nats a 6-5 lead. 

 

The Indians a unearned run back to tie the game in the bottom of the 5th, but the Nats scored 4 more in the 6th with help from a 3 walks loading the bases, and Chris Civilikas driving in 2 runs with a bases loaded double scoring Vedagiri and Eng, followed by an RBI groundout by Shin scoring Johnnie Teng, and a clutch 2-out single by Gnanasivam scoring Civilikas.  Nats lead 10-6 after 6 innings.

 

Gnanasivam relieved Eng in the 5th, and pitched a scoreless 6th helped by a 4-6-3 double play started by Luke Mitbo (Mitbo-Eng-Shin).  After two walks in the bottom of the 7th, Civilikas entered the game to pitch, and escaped a bases-loaded jam limiting the Indians to one run to make it 10-7.  Civilikas induced one of the Indians sluggers to pop out to Shin in foul ground for the first out.  Shin made a great catch up against the first base dugout fence, and Civilikas dropped the hammer getting the final two outs on strikeouts with the bags still juiced, and the potential tying run on 1st .

 

As a result of this victory, on Tuesday 6/16, CA will be playing Tricities at Purissima field in Los Altos.  Game will begin at 5:30pm.
