The Red Sox saved their best for last.

In their game for the Spreckels Park Little League minor championship Friday with the Angels, the two teams threw 342 pitches and combined for 39 walks against just 17 hits with nine strikeouts. Dacota House came in to pitch for the Red Sox in the fifth inning – he was one of seven total pitchers in the game – and allowed just one run in two innings while striking out three to cement the championship for the Red Sox who outlasted the Angels, 24-18.

In their five at-bats, the Red Sox got the maximum allowable runs-per-inning of five in all but the first when they got four. The Angels hit the maximum twice, but it was the pitching of House over the last two innings that gave the Red Sox the separation they needed.

Steven Aquila and Joshua Brake were each 2 for 4 with two RBI for the Red Sox. Lucas Stackpole doubled and Red Sox teammate Aiden Burk had a two-RBI single.

Gabe Torres (2 for 4, RBI) had the play of the day for the Angels when his two-out bases-loaded single in the fourth inning rolled to the right field fence, clearing the bases and with nifty base running he came all the way around to score. Adrian Rios was 3 for 4 with two RBI for the Angels and Alex Gatty was 2 for 4 with a pair of RBI.

 The Red Sox will open the District 67 Tournament of Champions on Sunday, June 15, against either Tracy National or Weston Ranch at Spreckels Park.
