An exciting few days at Hiller Park in McKinleyville will conclude on Tuesday night with the District 26 TOC championship game.

And a McKinleyville team is guaranteed to be crowned champion, the only question is which one.

On Monday night, McKinleyville’s Trinity Diesel defeated Arcata 9-4 in one of the two semifinals, with McKinleyville’s Rich Drilling getting the better of the Redwood Empire Giants 5-1 in the other.

First pitch on Tuesday night is set for 5:30 p.m.

Tate Saso led the way for Rich Drilling on Monday with another strong performance on the mound, while Talon Turner and Everett Gruetzmacher combined for the victory on the mound for Trinity Diesel.

On Sunday, Arcata beat the Klamath Trinity Giants 8-2, Rich Drilling defeated the Southern Humboldt Pirates 6-2, Trinity Diesel defeated Willow Creek 7-5, and the RELL Giants squeaked out a 5-4 win over McKinleyville No. 2 in extra innings.

The 14-team tournament began on Saturday.
