Adam Curtis hurled a complete game, helping the White Sox down the A's, 11-4, in Mission San Jose Little League (MSJLL) Juniors play. Curtis allowed three runs in the first inning before settling down to allow just one run over the final six innings of the game. He scattered 10 hits as the White Sox played near flawless defense, committing only one error during the contest. Devon Jones and Patrick Andresen doubled and singled for the Sox. Andresen and Sean Tannenbaum each drove in two White Sox runs.
Jeff Chu pitched nearly six innings of three-hit baseball as the Red Sox downed the White Sox, 8-3, in a battle of the second-place teams. Chu was in command from the start as his teammates provided a quick 4-0 lead in the first inning. Brian Zucker's double highlighted the four-run uprising. The White Sox plated a run to get on the board in the first inning, but then could not touch Chu as he hurled four scoreless innings. Guhan Sundar's two-run single and Chandler Witham's long double helped the Red Sox. Andresen collected a single and double for the White Sox, and teammate Kevin Finch rapped a long triple.
The Mets continued the domination of the Junior Division with a 12-2 victory over the second- place Red Sox. Ryan Mark, Michael Lin and Cal Tarbert knocked out two hits for the Mets, with Lin driving in two runs. Brandon Fuhs, James Gaffey and Kenny Jacoby combined to limit the Red Sox to three hits while striking out seven. Param Bhatter provided the Red Sox offensive highlight with a line-drive double that drove in a run.
The Yankees' potent offense led the way to lopsided wins over the Braves (16-3) and Mets (14-3). Nathan Chang smacked four hits, including a double, triple and inside-the-park home run. Matthew Tang also contributed four hits, while Dustin Chiang and Sam Lowrey added three each. Jason Amico drove in three runs with a pair of hits, while Darin Chamberlain had a booming RBI double.
