The Humboldt Eagles 19Us suffered back-to-back shutouts at the end-of-season tournament in Fairfield on Friday and Saturday, dropping to 1-2 in tourney play.

The local American Legion baseball club fell 11-0 to the Petaluma Leghorns in five innings on Friday night and followed that with a 5-0 loss to Napa on Saturday.

Hunter Davis got the team’s only hit against the Leghorns, who took control of the game with five runs of the top of the second and never looked back.

Curtis Edge took the loss on the mound, with Matteo Gutierrez and Xander Sorensen throwing in relief.

Saturday’s game was far closer, with the Eagles holding Napa scoreless through the opening four innings before their opponents pulled away late.

Aidan Dorsch pitched five innings for the loss, allowing five hits and four walks and striking out five.

Connor Johnson pitched one inning in relief.

At the plate, Johnson, Sorensen, Gutierrez and Richard Reeves each had a hit.

The Eagles will conclude tournament play with one more game on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m.
