LATHROP – The Spreckels Park Angels came into Friday’s contest with their postseason life at stake for the third straight time and responded with a victory. They ended the Tracy National Phillies’ season with a 14-4 blowout in District 67 Majors Tournament of Champions action at Mossdale Park.

The Angels came out focused on the task at hand, answering Tracy’s first run to open the game with a nine-run first at bat. Eight of the Angels’ first nine batters would come around to score, practically sealing the deal in the game’s first six outs.

Craig Durao handled the bulk of the pitching for the Angels, starting the game and tossing 49 pitches before handing it over to Sam Buza and Chase Sperbeck to close it out.

Spreckels Park had a huge day at the plate, lighting up the scoreboard with the nine-run first, another run in the third and four more in the fourth to end it. The Angels will try and end the season of their fourth counterpart when they meet up with the Mountain House Giants at 10 a.m.

Dylann Heath led the way for the Angels with a towering three-run homer in the pivotal first inning, while Daniel Aguilar and Hunter Frisk both went 3 for 3. Starting pitcher Durao also collected a hit in the win.

Things could not have started off any better for the Northgate A’s when Jack Weaver led off the game with a solo home run. But Weaver’s solo shot would be the A’s only offense, falling silent the remainder of the game and subsequently ending their postseason run.

Northgate starter Brayden Hardcastle gave his club a phenomenal effort, tossing a complete game on 89 pitches.
