Friday opened with Bay Area and Chick-fil-a as the loser’s bracket played out all day long and then the winner’s bracket finals between Competitive Edge and MPT was the final game of the day.  Bay Area scored early and often taking a 13-0 lead into the bottom of the 3rd.  Chick-fil-a never could get the offense going and even though they scored 6 in the last 3 innings they still came up short 13-7.  David Johnson, Brady Bate, Dante Broom and Justin Mucciarelli at the bottom of the order all reached base safely 3 times for Bay Area.  And Chick-fil-a’s Tre Porter and Jacob Clifton hit the games only home runs.

Bay Area’s last minute pickup Capp in left field robbed Stidham of a homer.

#5 Competitive Edge/Olmito/Suncoast (FL-Major)

vs

#3 MPT Rentals/Juno Athletics (NJ-Major)

Link to Condensed game

Competitive Edge made it to the winner’s final as a ‘AA’ team beating Westpoint, Resmondo, and Proton in the 1st two days and many thought they had a good shot to win the Major and become only the 3rd ‘AA’ team to ever do this.  But they came out flat and put up zero’s in the 1st, 2nd, and 7th innings vs MPT Rentals.  Meanwhile Ryan Harvey homered in the bottom of the 1st and Joe Joe Bennett went 4-4 batting for the “cycle” for MPT.  In the top of the 4th Competitive Edge grabbed a narrow 4-3 lead on back to back solo homer’s by Ryan Honeycutt and Joe Boland and Competitive Edge had a 6-5 lead in the top of the 5th on a Tyler Ervine homer but it was all MPT the rest of the way as they put CE away with a pair of sac fly’s in the bottom of the 6th and held CE scoreless in the top of the 7th to win 10-7.
