Shelby Moulton Crowned Regional Champs



In the Comet 3rd, Ethan White led off with a walk. After a strikeout and a fly out to right, the catcher hit a pitch off the handle and it died between the mound and the 2nd baseman for an infield hit.

A pop out to the other side of the mound brought Howell and Martz together, bumping into each other as they both went for the ball. Martz went down with the ball in his glove for the out.

Gottfriedt led off with a hit and stole 2nd. He tried to steal 3rd, but was thown out. Isaac Kramer came in to pitch and got two strikeouts.

In the Comet 4th, Howell Ko'd Kessler on a 3rd strike curve. Kramer grounded out. A bloop hit got one man on, but he was stranded.

In the Ram 4th, Shelby up 5-0, put the 10-run rule in play. Summers got a bloop base hit over the shortstop. Aaron Byers then bunted and Kramer dove for the short pop up, but couldn't reach it. Byers was safe.

Cameron walked to load the bases and Pullen hit an RBI-single, scoring Byars, 5-0. Pullen was stealing 2nd, when Howell hit a single, scoring Cameron, 7-0. Pullen went all the way to 3rd and Braxton vice came in to run for Howell.

Gottfriedt walked and Spears reached on an error, scoring Pullen. Watson reached on another error, scoring Gottfriedt, 10-0.

Howell tried to end the game in a hurry in the top of the 5th. He rang up the first batter on a 3rd strike curve ball. He struck out the next batter. Quast hit a high chopper down the 3rd base line and Howell got to it, but couldn't get the speedy Quast in time. The next batter lifted a fly ball to center field and Spears squeezed for the win and the regional championship.
