Starting pitcher Zack Reyes tossed five shutout innings and the Little Little Falcons soared to a 9-0 win in the Majors division of the Saipan Little League on Sunday at the Miguel “Tan Ge” Basa Pangelinan ball field.

Only two games were played over the weekend after the SLL participated in Saturday’s Carnival, held in celebration of the Mariana Resort’s 37th anniversary.

The Comets won by default against the Jets, while the Natibu Sports Association Braves also scored an easy 11-2 triumph over Team McDonald’s.

Reyes gave up two hits while retiring 12 and walking four batters he faced before being relieved by Avan Evangelista in the top of the sixth with Sean Rabauliman up to bat.

Reyes struck out Kaipo Dikito for the first out before Evangelista came in.

Rabauliman got on base on a fielding error by James Salalila, but got stranded on first base after Evangelista fanned John Pangelinan then forced Delbert Sablan to a game-ending infield fly that was caught by Isiah Teigita.

Evangelista was a home run short of hitting the cycle going 3-for-4 with three runs and an RBI. He had a double in the first inning and an RBI triple in the second.

Keoni Serrano went 2-for-3 with one run scored and a double in the fifth where the game was already in the bag for the Little Falcons.

Kyle Kapileo had an RBI single in the second, while Melanio Sablan drove in two runs in the Little Falcons’ four-run first inning rally.

Braves 11, McDonald’s 2

Vicente Camacho blasted two inside-the-park home runs, while catcher Anthony Dison and third baseman Tristan Norita had one each in the Braves’ victory.

Camacho went 3-for-3 with solo homers in the second and fourth innings with two RBIs. Dison belted a two-run shot also in the second tagging along Heath Camacho in reaching home plate. Norita had a solo round-tripper in the fourth.

Vicente Camacho tossed four no-hit innings with one unearned run, where Donovan Deleon Guerrero scored on a Dison throwing error in the top of the fourth. He also struck out 10 batters and walked three.

Anthony Norita threw two two-hit innings allowing one earned run by Joven Atalig, who singled in the fifth, while fanning five and walking four.
