Two LittleLeague teams win

The South Whidbey Little League team, the Rangers, defeated South Skagit 2-1 in the Ted Reep Tournament of Champions in Mount Vernon on Saturday.

It was another solid defensive performance by the Rangers as they threw out five runners. Parker Collins was dominant on the mound and Trent Fallon threw three scoreless innings in relief.

The score was 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth inning when the Rangers’ Jordan Parrick advanced on a passed ball to third and stole home on the same play.

Also on Saturday, the Yankees won their opening game in the Andy Andrade Tournament by a score of 6-2 over Ferrellgas of the Burlington Little League.

CJ Sutfin pitched a complete game, scattering seven hits and striking out eight batters while walking one.

Elijah Nichols and Sutfin were both 2-for-3 at the plate. Nichols and Colton Sterba each scored two runs for the winning team.
