ROTARY STARS 11, PLEASANT VIEW 6
With the win, the Lebanon squad earned a No. 1 seed in the Dixie Youth OZone State and will play Friday, July 13 at 2 p.m, in Springfield. Lebanon Rotary will play Lookout Mountain in the opener.
Lebanon jumped to a 5-1 lead after one inning, but needed a four-run burst in the bottom of the fifth to keep Pleasant View at bay.
Noah Mulaski opened the inning by drilling a single, then scored ahead of Sobieszczyk's towering homer to left. First baseman Thomas Bryan followed with a line single to left, then was lifted for pinch runner Taylor Petty, who trotted home when Alsup blasted a fastball over the wall for an 11-3 lead.
PV touched Wright for a three runs in the top of the six, two of which were unearned. But the 11-year old struck out a batter and got the next hitter to hit a comebacker to the mound for the final out.
Wright struck out six, walked three and scattered four hits to get the decision.
Dixie Nationals win sub-district
The Nationals won Tuesday's opener 11-3 as Mark McDearman went the distance on the mound, then took the nightcap in quick fashion 11-1 in four innings.
The Nationals will join the Dixie Americans this weekend in the District 4 tournament at Lakewood. The American League won their sub-dstrit in Joelton Monday.
Lebanon dropped game one of the championships to White House 3-2, despite solid pitching performances from Kameron Bond and Evan Britt. Mason Everett had three hits in the loss and Alek Kulas added two hits.
The American League squad wasted no time in the “if necessary” game, blasting White House 16-1 in just three innings.
