Nevada City team moves on in TOC
Nevada City’s Red Sox, who finished second in the regular season league standings, ousted the Foresthill Little League champs from the Majors Tournament of Champions Thursday at Bear River Little League.
The Red Sox scored a 5-3 win, thanks to strong performances at the plate by several players. Rob Wood went 2-for-2 with a home run to lead the way, while Skyler Carpenter was 2-for-3 with two triples and two runs scored. David Bernadett went 1-for-2, with a key RBI in the top of the sixth inning, and Charlie Stevens also added a base hit.
“I thought the kids battled,” said Nevada City coach Rob Wood, Sr. “The other pitcher was very tough, but by the second time and third time through the lineup we started to hit the ball better and had better at bats. That was the key.”
Four Red Sox pitchers took to the mound in the win with Alex Charvoz starting, striking out three and allowing one hit in three innings. Carpenter, Wood and Cameron Townsend closed out the final three frames, combining for eight strikeouts and one hit.
The Red Sox return to action Saturday, squaring off with the Grass Valley Angels, who finished second in the Grass Valley Majors Division. The Angels defeated the Nevada City regular season champion on Wednesday night by a 13-8 score.
