Rockies take top spot in league

As the Truckee Little League season wrapped up last week, it was the Pizza Junction Rockies team which came out on top in the major leagues, defeating the CHP Giants 6-3 for the league championship.

Pitching for the Rockies, Josh Furr took the mound for a complete game four-hitter, striking out nine batters.

Behind the bat, J.R. Murphy and Chris Bosco each had two hits to lead the Rockies.

“This was the best-played game of the year by both teams,” said Rockies manager Barry Galvin.

The win comes for the Rockies after winning three straight against the Giants.

The Rockies took an early first-inning 2-0 lead, then followed with a run in the second, and three in the fifth, sealing the win.

The Giants managed single runs in the second, third and fifth innings.

The Rockies were led by all-stars Richard Hess, Josh Furr, Daniel Galvin and J.R. Murphy.

The home-team Giants had help from Jamie Maehler in the second inning, when he hammered a single. Greg Shove had a base hit which sent Maehler in to home for a run.

Leading the Giants for the day was Jeff Hansen.

In the third inning, Hansen singled and stole his way home for a run. In the fifth, Hansen repeated the feat, scoring the final run for the Giants.

Alex Collin pitched for an inning and a half and was relieved by Logan Walsh, who had strikeouts in the third, fourth and sixth innings.

“I was extremely proud of the boys for their hard work,” said Giants coach Wes Maehler.

The Rockies ended the season at 9-3, while the Giants finished at 7-3-1, their only losses coming against the Rockies.
