The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Medford 8 year old travel team competed in the Delran 9U Memorial Day tournament last week-end and ended the campaign with a 3-1 record (even beating the eventual champion, Southhampton).<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
In the final, following an awesome pitching performance by Jake Miller, Grant Wetterau came to bat with the bases loaded in the 5th and ripped a single to put the boys up 11-5. However, Delran ran wild in the bottom of the inning and knotted it at 11 after stealing home with 2 outs!
The Local Lads pulled it together and scraped 2 runs across in the top of the 6th on a 1 out, bases loaded single over a drawn in infield by Brendan Heine. Michael Vasturia came on to close it out in the bottom of the 6th and struck out the side to preserve the win for the "Boys in White"!
The 8 year old travel team will be competing in the Mt laurel 9B tournament next Friday, July 16th-20th at LaurelAcresPark.
