NBC World Series Day 9
More NBC World Series Results
....Patrick Cooper of the Hays Larks lead his team to victory in the 5:00 PM game yesterday as he pitched a complete game giving up only 1 run. Hays scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the second and added what proved to be the game winning run in the bottom of the 5th. Nevada pitcher Anthony Pryor was the tough luck loser as he pitched 5 innings giving up only 2 earned runs. The Griffons made it close by scoring a run in the 8th, but in the end the Larks pitchers were too much to overcome.
....Like many of the NBC World Series games, the action started early in a match up between the Derby (KS) Twins and the Game Time (LA) Rockies. The Twins notched five runs to their belt in the first inning - leading to another run scored in the second inning. A single run scored in the fifth inning by the Twins was the last score the remainder of the game. Twins pitcher Eric Braekel picked up his second win of the tournament (he pitched for 5.1 innings), also notable was third baseman Skyler Rawlins who drove in three runs off just a solo hit in two at bats.
....The past few days have brought us a few run-ruled games, Anchorage brought us another in Monday’s 10:30 AM game. The Clarinda (IA) A’s had no answer for the Anchorage Glacier Pilots and gave up eleven runs in a shortened six inning game, unable to score or stop the opposing team. Anchorage pitcher Jason Mitchell threw all six innings of the game - giving up three hits, striking out seven batters and walking zero. Ryan Gebhart, Anchorage center fielder had another outstanding game with three RBI on two hits and one run scored in four at bats.
