Del Mar Little League Mets win the Coast Cities Majors Championship


The Del Mar National Majors Champion Mets followed up their Del Mar Little League Championship win with the 2013 Coast Cities Little League Majors Championship win. The DMN Mets rolled through the Coast Cities tournament playoff bracket beating the Encinitas National Brewers, the Encinitas Padres, and the Encinitas Nationals by a combined 30-10, to meet up with the Del Mar National Dodgers in the 2013 Coast Cities Majors Championship.

The Mets jumped out to a fast start in the first inning on a Parker Williams solo homerun, followed up with Cole Shearson scoring after a Nick Pauley hit. In the third inning, Ryan Sanborn adds a run stealing home from third base. The Dodgers score one in the third inning and one in the fourth inning to keep it close at 3-2 going into the sixth inning.

In the top of the sixth inning, AJ Mattingly hits a single; Ryan Sanborn reaches on a fielder’s choice; Parker Williams is walked, and Cole Shearson is walked to load the bases. Nick Pauley drives in two runs on a key double to the gap to secure the Mets win, 5-2. A major factor in the game, and the win, was the phenomenal shut-down pitching by the Mets’ Ryan Sanborn. Sanborn pitched 5.67 innings and recorded 14 strikeouts on the way to securing the win.
