A phenomenal pitching performance by Jacob Martinez coupled with nine errors by the Weston Ranch Brewers that give the Spreckels Park Little League Tigers a 10-0, four-inning win Monday in major District 67 Tournament of Champions consolation action at Lincoln Park. 

The Brewers had just one baserunner when Javier Delgado reached in the fourth inning on an infield error. Outside of the final out of the game which was a running catch by Kyle Boulter of Christian Cuevas’ towering fly ball, only one other Weston Ranch player got a bat on the ball when Jude Debose grounded out in the first inning. Martinez struck out 10, including six in a row in the second and third innings. 

Sonny Elder (2 for 2, three runs) got the Tigers machine going by leading off the second inning with a home run. After reaching on an error, Zelmar Vedder scored on an error and Joey Obrochta singled and came home on a passed ball. Elder singled and scored on a wild pitch in the third inning and three Weston Ranch errors helped lead to six Spreckels Park runs in the fourth inning with the lone hit of the frame being a two-RBI double by Mikey Elder (2 for 3, double, two RBI). Weston Ranch’s errors led to nine unearned runs.

The Tigers face Tracy National at Lincoln Park today at 7 p.m.
