Pecos LL, JL squads facing LV

The Pecos Junior League and Little League All-Star teams will have morning games in San Angelo over the next two days, as the Junior Leaguers try to stay alive in the District 4 Tournament for 13-14 year olds, while the Little Leaguers look to advance to the District 4 Tournament finals.

Pecos' Junior Leaguers will play first, after dropping their tournament opener last weekend to San Angelo Western by a 16-4 final score. They'll be at the San Angelo Northern complex off U.S. 87 for a 9 a.m. game on Friday against San Angelo Lake View.

The Little Leaguers will also face Lake View in their next game, at the Northern Little League complex off 19th Street, in a 10 a.m. start on Saturday. The winner will advance to the tournament title game at 5 p.m. on Sunday, while the loser has to hang around to play an 8 p.m. game on Saturday in the double-elimination tournament.

The 11-12 year olds also opened play last weekend in the District 4 Tournament, and came away with a 6-0 victory over Western. Lucas Chavez got out of a couple of early jams to pitch the shutout, striking out 12, while Pecos scored four runs in the fifth inning to break open a 2-0 game.

"They've got about seven kids on the (San Angelo) select team, so they thought they were going to win," said manager Richard Chavez. "Lucas had faced them before in select team play, but he had never pitched against them."

Under the rules, Lucas Chavez can't pitch on Saturday, so either Timo Reyes or Saul Baez is expected to pitch Saturday's game.

Junior League coach Ray Palomino didn't know who he would pitch yet against Lake View, following Pecos' loss to Western. Isaiah Rayos started and took the loss in that game, lasting just one inning due to control problems.

"We had a lot of times when our pitchers would get two strikes on the batter and then would walk him," Palomino said. "We had about 10 or 11 walks, and there's no way you can win with that many walks."

"I don't know how good Lake View is, but I know they got beat pretty badly by Northern," Palomino said.

If the Junior Leaguers win, they would still have to win three more games over the weekend in order to come away with the District 4 title and advance to the sectional round of the tournament.
