9/10 All-Stars

Seaview 6, Huntington Valley 1: Seaview received a huge performance from Braeden Boyles who pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings against a very strong Huntington Valley team Tuesday.

As it did in its tournament opener on Saturday, Seaview jumped out to an early lead, gaining a 3-0 advantage following a couple walks and a two-run single by Jeremy Alcorn. Boyles got some help from his outfielders Luke Slavik and Sam Dater who made two, critical catches keeping the score at 3-0 going into the top of fifth.

Seaview closer Clay Kaneko relieved Boyles and got out of a bases-loaded jam with a key strikeout.

Seaview extended the lead to 6-1 after key RBI singles by Ryan Rivituso and Jackson Schnoor.
