LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Tim Thornton drove in two runs, Bryn Redhead gave a gutsy performance in the circle, and Hector’s NAFA Selects of Denver, CO, held off Page Brake of Salt Lake City to take an 8-5 victory in the AA / AA-Major Division of the Las Vegas Road Trip X tournament at Sunset Park, Saturday.

The Selects hadn’t been hitting the ball especially well in earlier games, but they erupted for four runs in the first inning on Thornton’s two-run double, and added two more in the second and one in the fifth to get past the hard-hitting lineup of Page Brake.

“We started slow and they took a 3-0 lead on us,” said Selects’ manager Matt Thornton, younger brother of Tim Thornton, “but our bats came alive.”
