TRACY — It was hard to tell which was hotter Wednesday, the scorching San Joaquin Valley sun or the smoking Manteca Giants bats.
Every starter got a bat on the ball at least once for the Giants who totaled 17 hits in a 19-0 four-inning mercy shortened thumping of the Tracy National Reds in consolation action of the District 67 Majors Tournament of Champions.
Manteca scored four runs in the first inning, six in the second and eight in the third. Jojo Brizuela (three RBI, double, three runs), Landon Chamberlain (two RBI, double, two runs) and Eli Terpsma (double, two runs) were all 3 for 4, Andrew Villa was 2 for 2 with an RBI, double and four runs, Bryan Lopez was 2 for 3 with three RBI and three runs and Nate Dorn was 2 for 4 with an RBI.
Reece George (run) and Wesley Currigan each had two RBI and Michael George (double, two runs) had one RBI.
Chamberlain, Reece George, Brizuela and Terpsma combined on the hill to throw an inning apiece and limit Tracy to one hit. Chamberlain, George and Brizuela had two strikeouts apiece – with George setting down the Reds in order in the third – and Terpsma had a perfect fourth inning with three strikeouts.
Manteca faces the Patterson Dodgers today at 5:30 in consolation action.

Patterson Dodgers 8,
Lathrop Giants 6 (8)
Giants fielding gaffes sunk a gutty pitching performance by Seth Owen and allowed the Dodgers to stay alive with the consolation win.
In the top of the eighth inning with the score tied at 5-5, Patterson got the first two batters aboard due to poor defense. Unfazed, Dunn struck out the next two batters and had two strikes on the third batter when a three-error play allowed three runs to score for an 8-5 lead. Lathrop got the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the inning but would get no closer.
Jasper Tover led the Giants offense, going 4 for 5 with two runs. Caleb Van Wetter (double, triple) and Riley Stromgren (double, run) were each 3 for 4.

Minors
Manteca Marlins 11,
 Lathrop 5
The Marlins downed Lathrop in a consolation contest at Brock Elliott School and face Weston Ranch today at 5:30 p.m.
