THE BLUEBIRDS AND BEANTOWNERS ADVANCE AFTER EXCITING SEMI-FINAL VICTORIES
The Peewee Division Championship Round kicked off today with two exciting semi-final games on Diamond # 2.
In the morning semi-final, the Jays (4) made the most of their opportunities to trump the Lizzies (1) 11-8. The Jays pitching brigade held the Lizzies potent offensive machine in check as the Bluebirds batters punched across eleven runs in the final three innings for the victory.
The Red Sox (2) edged the Yankees (3) 8-6 in the afternoon semi-final game. The Red Sox pitchers neutralized the Bronx Bombers batters in early portion of the game as the Beantowners were able to build up an 8-3 lead after three innings of play. Despite a late charge by the scrappy Yankees, the Red Sox hung on for the win.
Kudos to Ugo (14) of the Yankees who hit a two-run homer over the left field fence in the top of the first inning. It was the third home run hit at Diamond # 2 during the tournament.
