GLENDALE—A big first inning lifted the Burbank 10-11 All Stars to the District 16 championship over the Jewel City/Jewish War Veterans-Foothill 10-11 All Stars, completing a two-game sweep in the two-team tournament.
Burbank scored eight in the first en route to a 13-2 title-clinching victory on Sunday evening at the Scholl Canyon Ball Fields. The win came one day after Burbank defeated the Glendale squad in the first of the best-of-three series, 17-1, on Saturday.
Burbank needed just five hits to score the 13 runs, as it capitalized on seven walks and five errors from the JC/JWV-Foothill defense.
Ashley London’s triple scored Amaya Broyls and Lillyanna Travieso to put Burbank on the scoreboard. Alex Davis, Hana Savola, Sidnie Dabbadie picked up RBIs for the three subsequent runs. Burbank sent 12 batters to the plate in the deciding first inning.
