TaylorMade Upsets Combat/Laservision 18-3 to advance to Championship Game against Resmondo

It is Championship Sunday here at ESPN Wide World of Sports and our first game between TaylorMade and Combat/Laservision got on its way nice and early at 9:00am. Combat/Laservision was undefeated until last night when they were beat by Resmondo. TaylorMade has been battling back since Wednesday when they too lost to Resmondo in the first round, putting them into the Loser’s Bracket. Both teams go into this game hoping for a rematch against the number one seed Resmondo.

The first three innings of the game were quite one-sided with TaylorMade scoring a total of 9 runs off of 9 hits while Combat/Laservision was silent with no runs and no hits.

The fourth inning brought us the first homeruns of the game for both teams and the first run of the morning for Combat Laservision. TaylorMade still had the large lead of 13-1 going into the fifth inning.

After another big inning for TaylorMade in the top of the fifth, they led the game 18-1, forcing Combat/Laservision to wake up their bats in order to avoid a run rule defeat. Johnny McCraw stepped up to the plate and hits a bomb to left field, giving Combat/Laservision some hope to stay alive in the fifth. Rulli follows it up with a double to the left field fence. But it was not enough for Combat/Laservision. TaylorMade advances to the Championship Game by upsetting Combat 18-3. The final game between #1 seed, Resmondo and #16 seed TaylorMade will begin shortly.
