The Titans and Pirates opened the Spreckels Park Little League junior-division season Saturday at Brock Elliot School with a bang.

And in the end it was the Titans who banged the loudest in their 15-7 victory. The Titans broke away from a 6-6 tie going into the seventh inning with a big seventh-inning surge.

Makana Ward gave the Titans the lead for good with a bases-loaded single. William Reeder led the Titans’ hit parade with a 3-for-5 effort and four RBIs. Jayson Manuta was 2 for 5 with three runs scored.

Manuta was also the winning pitcher, as he worked the final three innings and struck out five will giving up a pair of unearned runs. Alex Jorgensen got the start, cruising through four innings and fanning five.

Jesus Esquivel did his job on the mound for the Pirates but got little help from the defense. He struck out eight batters, and only one of the five runs scored on him was earned.
