After Northgate Little League managed just one hit two days earlier, Richard Perez capped a 15-hit barrage for the Red Sox on Wednesday with a two- run walk-off home run as they pummeled Mountain House 18-8 in an elimination contest of the District 67 Majors Tournament of Champions at Northgate’s Gillen Field.
The game ended in four innings due to the mercy rule.
With Northgate leading 15-8, Max Abrew (2 for 3, two RBI, triple, run) led off the Red Sox fourth with a walk and came in on double by Daryl Carpenter (4 for 4, five RBI, three doubles, four runs), his third double of the night. Ryan Allen (3 for 4, four RBI, double, three runs) singled in Carpenter, setting the stage for the monster bat of Perez who was 4 for 4 with six RBI, two triples and four runs.
Northgate made a statement to start the game with a seven-run first inning highlighted by Allen’s two-RBI double and RBI singles by Carpenter, Perez and Landyn Parker.
Samuel Miller was 2 for 2 with two doubles and three runs for the A’s and teammate Jeremiah Sosa was 2 for 3 with two RBI and a double.
The season ended for Mountain House, and the Red Sox continue in the consolation bracket and play either Manteca or Spreckels Park on Friday at 5:30 p.m.
