Falcons slash Braves, 13-4 in Little League

THE Tanapag Falcons’ rollercoaster ride in the Saipan Little League’s majors division continued as they evened their record on a lopsided 13-4 win against the Tanapag Braves at the Miguel “Tan Ge” Basa Baseball Field last Saturday.

Photo by Christian V. CruzThe Falcons soared to their third win this season, having started on a 5-0 lead as early as the first inning.

JD Pangelinan went 4-for-5 to lead at the plate, scoring two runs while Ace Evangelista and pitcher Benen Iguel added three apiece.

The Braves (1-5) remained scoreless until the bottom of the fourth when Andres Camacho drove Brandon Pua home on an RBI single.

The Falcons pulled away 10-0 after Pangelinan’s run-scoring single in the third inning, and eked out three more runs at the top of the sixth.

Iguel struck out 10 and walked four.

Pangelinan bagged his second RBI on a single, then posted their third out between third base and home plate in the sixth inning.

Braves’ Noel Cabrera managed eight strikeouts in the first five innings while reliever Justin Cangco struck out one batter and walked one.

Leading the majors division as of Saturday were the undefeated Dandan Comets (7-0), followed by the JPO Enforcers (6-1), San Vicente A’s (5-2), and As Matuis Twins (5-3).

Comets 12, IT&E 2

The Rep. Joseph P. Guerrero-sponsored Comets broke through IT&E with a 7-0 lead, and Aurel Mendiola sealed the game with an RBI single in Saturday’s first game.

Mendiola went 4-for-4 and delivered a first-inning home run while Austin Indalecio and Erik Cruz combined for a two-hitter from the mound.

IT&E avoided a shutout when Won Kim and Michael Jones scored back-to-back runs on wild pitches.

Comets’ Vincent Taman and Austin Hocog piled four runs in addition to one apiece from Christian Achas, Edmund Cruz, Rejay Iskawa, and special pinch runner Norman Villagomez.

Indalecio and Erik Cruz tallied seven strikeouts with six walks.

Ol’ Aces 7, Red Sox 3

Virgil Secharmidal made up for his 1-for-4 performance when he struck a two-run homer in the IT&E Ol’ Aces’ fourth win this season.

The home run drove in Jordan Kosam and Jimmy Kaipat — both of whom scored two runs each.

Earlier, the Bank of Saipan Red Sox nearly evened the game when Ryan Aguon scored their third run on a wild pitch.

Kaipat and starting pitcher Glen Calvo pitched a three-hitter and held them off on 15 strikeouts with five walks in six innings.

Red Sox’s Delon Reusora and Tindin Leon Guerrero managed 13 strikeouts just before Secharmidal’s homer.

Roman and Jerome Reyes chipped in two runs for the Ol’ Aces.
