ML Game 1


Baker Printing     6

Campbell's Boathouse     2


Defending ML champions Baker Printing got off to a great start on opening night. In the bottom of the 1st, Casey Calloway blasted an opposite field 3 run HR to give Baker all the runs they would need to capture their 1st victory by a score of 6-2. Baker had excellent pitching from Kyle Virbitsky and Alex Burman. Kyle struck out 6 of the 9 batters he faced while allowing only 1 hit by Jacob Grady. Alex fanned 5 batters over the final 3 innings and limited Campbells to just 2 runs.

Kyle Virbitsky had 2 hits, 2 runs scored and drove in 1 run while Manny Ruffin drove in another run with a single in the 2nd inning. Justin Ross made his Little League debut special by getting a single to right field in his 1st official at bat! He also made the final out of the game tracking down a fly ball in right field.

Cambells received strong pitching performances from Xandy Hammitt, Andrew Robinson, and Jimmy Weyler who combined to strike out 11 Baker hitters.
