Baseball

Kyle Hatai of the North Torrance Junior Little League All-Star Baseball team went 4-for-4 with four runs and two runs batted in to key his team to an eight-inning 11-9 win over Lennox in the first round of the Section 4 Tournament. North went on to lose to a powerful Manhattan Beach squad, 24-5, on Sunday and played Lennox, again, last Monday in a losers bracket game in an attempt to get to the finals against Manhattan, which has one of the top Junior teams in California and, possibly, the United States. North Torrance was the District 27 champion.
