The Del Mar American Little League AA Rock Hounds defeated the Del Mar National League River Bandits 2-0 in a great pitching battle at Sage Canyon Park to win the AA DMLL Championship.  The Rock Hounds were paced by the pitching of Nathan ‘The Old Horse” Lesher, Aidan “Lefty” Parsons and Jake “Go Time” Altman.  Lesher started the game and held the River Bandits in check by having good command of the strike zone.

The River Bandits threatened in the 1st inning with 2 runners on when the Rock Hounds Mike Caterina made a fantastic catch in left field to end the rally.  Parsons than came in and pitched flawless in middle relief before Altman closed the game by striking out 6 of the 7 River Bandits he faced to seal the victory.

The game was scoreless until the 4th inning when Altman knocked in two runs with a double.

The Rock Hounds Championship capped a fantastic season where they finished with a record or 18-4-1.  They were led by Lesher “The Old Horse’ who clubbed 8 home runs during the season and pitched brilliantly.  The Rock Hounds Manager David “Coach Dave” Altman said, “I couldn’t be prouder of these boys!  Their effort and improvement throughout the season was something special.”

The Rock Hounds were managed by Altman, with coaches Sean Lesher, Dave Peterson, and John Woolson. They carried a 12-man roster: Jake Altman, Nathan Lesher, Connor Douglas, Kai Pellegrino, Big Jake Noble, Aidan Parsons, Liam Peterson, Chris Woolson, Henry Takahashi, Kishan Pansuria, Mike Caterina and Griffin Seidel
