Millbrae falters short of Joe DiMaggio title
July 25, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

With their hopes set on recapturing the prestige once held by the city, the Millbrae Joe DiMaggio head found itself on e win away from winning the World Series.

But, it just wasn’t meant to be.

The Millbrae Mavericks, co-managed by Robbie Garrison, were unable to handle the momentum of the Tri-City Gamblers.

Having already beaten two teams in back to back nights to stay alive in the tournament, Tri-City rode its heat and swept Millbrae to capture the Joe DiMaggio World Series.

After advancing to the championship series of the Peninsula League tournament in 2012, only to fall to San Carlos, Millbrae was determined to not only win the Peninsula League title, but make a legitimate push for the Joe DiMaggio World Series championship.

It finished with an 18-3 record this season in league play, finishing in a three-way atop the Peninsula League standings with Pacifica and San Carlos. It then captured the Peninsula League tournament title to punch its ticket to the World Series.

In the World Series, Millbrae rolled through the winner’s bracket and set themselves up nicely come the Series final on Wednesday.

But Tri-City inched out a 7-5 win in Game 1 of the series and then ultimately rode that momentum to a Game 2 win.

Millbrae last captured a Joe DiMaggio World Series title 26 years ago.

BELMONT-REDWOOD SHORES FALLS

It turns out, the boys from the Belmont-Redwood Shores Majors little league team aren’t invincible after all.

All it took was the No. 1 rated pitcher in all of Northern California, Javier Felix.

Felix did what seems unreal. He shut down an offense that had averaged nearly 12 runs a game during a 10-game postseason winning streak this summer. It was his superb pitching — and a home run — that pushed Santa Cruz American past Belmont-Redwood Shores 2-0.

The shutout was definitely BRS’ lowest run total of the summer. Before then, Belmont scored double-digit runs in seven of its 10 games. Their lowest run total was two against San Ramon in the Section 3 championship game.

Nick Lopez and Luke Bugbee picked up hits for BRS.

Belmont-Redwood Shores must now venture into the consolation bracket. They’ll take on the winner of Thursday’s game between River Park National and West Sacramento on Friday at 7 p.m.
