NELL 10 Year Old Tournament
Media LL 8
Coming off a tournament championship win last week, the Media 10 year old tournament team continued its winning streak in its first game of the NELL tournament. Media bested Plymouth 8 to 4 in a scorcher played at mid-day on one of the hottest days of the summer.
Media got on the board in the first inning on a single by Zavier Alvarez-Burock, who then stole three bases to score the first run. Vince Caruso had a great game hitting 2 for 2, including a double and making a beautiful overhead catch to end the fourth inning. Other sluggers included Brian Gunn, who had a single and a double, Malcolm Williams, who contributed an in-the-park home run to clear the bases in the third, and Sam Holefelder, who hit a two-out double in the fifth to keep the game alive.
Patrick Stroup was the starting pitcher hurling seven strike-outs in two and 2/3 innings. Isaac Golub came on in relief adding two strikeouts to get the team into the fourth inning. Zavier Alvarez-Burock put out all five batters he faced to end the game.
