Three Rivers All-Stars tops Sherrelwood All-Stars, 9-4

Hosting game one of the Junior Little League State Championship at the Glenwood Springs Middle School baseball field, the Three Rivers Little League All-Start team topped the visiting Sherrelwood (Boulder Area) All-Stars, Saturday, 9-4, behind a dominant pitching and hitting performance from Jake Ticer.

Ticer threw five innings for Three Rivers, allowing just three runs on eight hits while striking out six and walking two. To go along with his great outing on the mound, Ticer went 3-for-3 at the plate, picking up a single, double and home run while driving in three runs of his own.

With Tice cruising on the mound, the Three Rivers offense jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings as Ticer led off with a single in the bottom of the second inning. Kaid Nieslanik then followed with a single of his own before Jace Luck reached on an error by the Sherrelwood leftfielder.

Dylan Albright then drove in a run on a groundout to the shortstop before Ash Stolley dropped down a sacrifice bunt. Garrett Anderson capped things off with a double, giving Three Rivers a 3-0 lead.

Looking to add on to their 3-0 lead, Three Rivers came to bat in the bottom of the third and recorded two quick outs before Sam Fitzwilliams hit a single, setting up Ticer for his RBI double to make it 4-0 after three innings of play.

Sherrelwood would respond with three runs of their own in the top of the fourth inning to cut Three Rivers’ lead to 4-3, but they would answer with a run in the bottom of the fourth inning thanks to an RBI single by Stolley to make it 5-3.

From there, Three Rivers continued to add on as Ticer hit a three-run homerun in the bottom of the five, scoring Rio Kauffman and Fitzwilliams to make it 8-3. Three Rivers would add one more run in the bottom of the sixth inning as Jack Pevny doubled and scored on a sacrifice by Joey Beveridge.

With the win, Three Rivers advances to the winner’s bracket of the double-elimination tournament. They’ll take on Durango today at 10 a.m. at the Glenwood Springs Middle School baseball field. Durango topped Arapohoe, 17-1, Saturday afternoon.
