Juneau’s Gastineau Channel Little League All-Stars lost 14-4 to Ketchikan at the District 2 Tournament in Sitka on Tuesday.

The game was shortened by the 10-run mercy rule in the fifth inning.

Donavin McCurley (1-2, 1 BB) led off with a walk, Michael Cesar (11-3, 1 RS) singled and Trevar Fiscus (1-2, 1 BB) walked to load the bases. Gist singled scoring McCurley and Cesar scored on later action. Gist stole a base and scored on a wild pitch to cut the lead to 4-3.
