GOVERNORS FIELD, Carson City and#8212; Truckee Little Leagueand#8217;s 9-10 All-Stars continued their torrid pace in the Carson City All-Star Tournament Tuesday night, routing Reno American West 14-1 to improve to 3-0.

On Tuesday, three Truckee pitchers combined to hold the Reno American West All-Stars to one unearned run in the first inning.

Austin Johnson started for Truckee and pitched two innings. Bennett Drummond pitched the next two innings, and Ethan Rohlf recorded the final two outs in relief. The game was called after five innings on the 10-run mercy rule.

Jack Englert hit a two-run triple and scored on an overthrow in the third inning, and Joey Gravell swatted two hits in the game, one of which drove in a pair of runs.

After tonight, the Carson City All-Star Tournament becomes single-elimination.
