Tri-Valley’s 14-year-old Babe Ruth All-Star team completed a perfect postseason run Saturday, winning the Babe Ruth World Series with a 3-1 victory over the Southeast representative.
Tri-Valley, the representative of the Pacific Southwest, swept through the playoffs by sweeping the State, Regional and World Series, finishing the postseason with a 6-0 record in the World Series played in Williston, ND.
Saturday’s win was over a team from Tallahassee, Fla., as the team scored three runs in the first and then relied on pitcher Grant Hoenninger and his defense.
Hoenninger ended up allowing just five hits while striking out nine.
