Juneau’s Gastineau Channel Little League Majors All-Stars scored first, last and in every inning in between on their way to a 19-1 mercy rule rout over Petersburg in the District 2 Tournament at Wrangell on Wednesday.


The big bat of Robert Cox Jr. (3-5) accounted for four RBI, including two home runs and four runs scored on the night, but all of the Majors found bases on the day as Juneau registered 18 hits and 13 RBI with just three strikeouts.
