Sitka All-Stars Win Semifinal

Sitka defeated Juneau 9-3 on Friday night in the Little League Alaska District 2 Majors (10-12 year old) All-Stars Tournament semifinal at Moller Field to advance to Sunday’s championship game.

Juneau will play Ketchikan on Saturday at 4 p.m. in an elimination game with the winner getting another crack at the home town Sitka diamond boys.

Sitka put up 9 runs in the first three innings of action and would need no further scoring as pitcher Bryce Calhoun kept the Juneau hitters off balance through 4.1 innings, leaving the mound with a 9-0 lead. Bryce threw just 48 pitches and had 3 strikeouts with just 1 walk.

Sitka first baseman Caleb Calhoun had a standout game with four quality put outs on errant throws from his fielders that stifled Juneau rallies early in the game and kept the lead intact.

Offensively Sitka scored 2 runs in the first inning as Emmit Johnson and Chance Coleman both disrupted the base paths to score on a passed ball.

Sitka added 5 runs in the second inning with the bases loaded as Coleman walked to score Brett Ross, C. Calhoun walked to score Josh Gluth, and Trey Johnson ripped a double into left field to score E. Johnson, Coleman, and C. Calhoun.

Sitka’s final 2 runs came in the top of the third as C. Calhoun hit a blooper scoring Evan Grant and Kai Hirai walked scoring B. Calhoun.

Closer T. Johnson came on one out into the fifth inning and finished the game with 28 pitches (4 hits, 3 runs).

 

Juneau scored 1 run in the bottom of the fifth as Ethan Lewis sacrificed in Riley Fick, and 2 runs in the bottom of the sixth as Hunter Carte singled in Nate Fick, and Riley Fick singled in Ezra Vidal.
