The American Honda A's won the Rookie Baseball Championship, by edging out the Rita Ice Orioles in a dramatic extra inning affair 7-6. Both teams played hard to the end, which made it a great battle on the field.
The A's scored in the first and 2 in the second to carry a 3-0 lead into the top of the fifth and final ining so we thought.
The A's defense upto this point was tremendous turning 3 double plays and fileding and making the plays, but so to were the Orioles, who also played great defense and turned in adouble play of their own to kill an A's ralley.
The fifth inning sent all parents attending into a crazy nail biting affair. With the A's up 3-0 and 3 outs away, the Birds made their come back. With a few fielding miscues by the A's the O's stormed back to tie the ball game 3-3. The A's had runners on 2nd and 3rd and 2 outs in the bottom of the inning, but got out of it with a ground out to the pitcher.
The O's scored 3 times in the top of the 6th as they continued to battle and play hard as both teams did all nite long to take a 6-3 lead into the bottom of the sixth and 3 outs away from the Championship, but the A's who never gave up all year, made a great champions come back to score 4 times in the bottom of the sixth to send the fans into frenzey and them to a Rookie Championship.
Players - Ryan -Bryan-Brett-James B-James E- Jake-Nick-Nathan-Matt -Gavin-Patrick -Eddie all had a great year and improve every game, Im very proud of them and congrats to the O's for their fine year.
