The 14U wood bat league was active once again on Sunday, with each team playing a double header. At the half way point, some teams are starting to eye the top seed in the playoffs. Let's take a look at how each team did on Sunday.
Game of the Day: Storm vs. Tarpons
Tyler McConway started on the bump for the Storm, and Jordan Wergiles took the mound for the Tarpons. Although it seemed to be one of the hottest days of the summer so far, it did not seem to distract these two pitchers. Both pitched great games.
The Storm struck first in the top half of the 2nd after an infield single by Jake Scheid to score Thomas Mason from third after he reached base on an error. The Tarpons made it an interesting game in the 3rd inning when Baron Carvel walked to lead off the inning and then stole 2nd on the next pitch to put him into scoring position. Chris Lehman was up next who hit a shot to left for a single to put men on first and third. Connor Shobe hit into a fielder's choice, allowingCarvel to score the Tarpons first run which tied the game at one apiece.
The Storm caught fire, though, as they scored two more in the 4th inning after a Logan Allen double over the centerfielder's head picking up two RBI. The Storm picked up another run in the 6th when Mason drove in Deji Andrews from second, picking up his first RBI on the day.
The Storm picked up one more insurance run in the top of the 7th when Jesse Feinsod drove in Max Yull from second base after a walk and a steal. Logan Allen closed the game for the Storm pitching two innings and picking up four strikeouts, three of which came in the bottom of the 7th . Final score was 5-1, Storm.
