its way through the loser’s bracket to reach
the District 36 championship game. A win
would catapult the team into the Section
Tournament starting this weekend.
After falling into the loser’s bracket, El
Segundo Little League (ESLL) weaved its way
into the championship game against Manhattan
Beach LL. ESLL defeated the favorites 7-5
in the first championship elimination game.
It used a four-run fourth inning highlighted
by a two-run double by Hudson Winteroud
and an RBI double by Owen Reed.
In the championship game, Adler Vaughn
slammed a three-run home run in the fourth
inning to guide Manhattan Beach to a 6-2
win. Trailing 1-0 in the third inning, ESLL
tied the game when Grady Lubs walked and
later scored on Logan Brooks’ RBI single.
The other El Segundo run came in the fourth
inning when Ben Lee hit a sacrifice fly to
make it 6-2.

RBI single in the second inning. But it was
Osborne’s RBI single in the fifth inning that
sealed the victory. Cole Knupfer threw a
complete game six-hitter with five strikeouts.
He was helped along by two double plays

Checking in on
Nootbaar and Palmer
Lars Nootbaar was signed to by the St.
Louis Cardinals last June. Since then, the
eighth round pick has been a standout in
the St. Louis organization. He started this
season playing for Peoria of the Midwest
League before being promoted to the Palm
Beach Cardinals of the Florida State League
(Advanced-A ball level). Nootbaar has been
promoted again and is playing for the AA
Springfield Cardinals of the Texas League.
One of the premiere summer collegiate
baseball leagues in the nation is the Cape Cod
Baseball League. Top players from around the
country play against each other to showcase
their talents for Major League scouts. Jake
Palmer, a high school All-American who
is starting for UC Irvine, is playing for the
Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox. In 11 games, Palmer
is hitting a respectable .278 while helping the
Red Sox to second place in the East Division.
