Read a quick summary of losers bracket action from earlier today:
After a morning of loser bracket play, Taylormade, Suncoast Reebok, Combat/Pharmapar, Shotte, and Darkside make it through. The level of competition was very evident with such close scoring games.
Taylormade defeated Woodlaw 18-16. Woodlaw’s Watson, Higginbotham, and Goins all had home runs, but the 20 hits by Taylormade gave them the extra runs that they needed to move on.
Combat/Pharmapar led the entire game, putting up solid numbers every inning. The same couldn’t go for EWS who struggled to sting hits together to get the runs that they needed. Score – Combat Win 26-20.
With an errorless game by Sinister and Darkside, the defense in the field really played a huge role in the outcome of this game. The two complete scoreless inning in the 4th and 5th played a part in the low scoring game. Overall the team typically with the most hits wins, and it was no different here. Darkside finished the game with a total of 15 hits, compared to Sinister’s 7.
The next losers bracket game was between Sonny’s & Doerflinger where Sonny’s started off well scoring 7 in the first inning to Doeflinger’s 5. Both teams maintained a good pace throughout the game with Doeflinger scoring 9 in the top of the 6th as their best inning. The score ended up with a Doeflinger win 30-25.
