Congratulations are in order for the Dallas Tigers 14U-Hernandez/Arias squad who took championship honors at the Matt Dozier Tournament this past weekend after downing the Texas Bombers Elite 6-3. The three keys to victory in this game were opportunistic base running, timely hitting, and stellar pitching. Chad Brown recorded the win after striking out two, picking off two and surrendering only three hits to an extremely well slugging Bombers team. Bradley Missel took the mound for the final two innings and shut the Bombers down with 4 strikeouts and two hits.
The Dallas Tigers and Texas Bombers Elite each put runners in scoring position on Sunday, but the Tigers were able to capitalize on these opportunities. While the Bombers stranded 8 runners on base, the Tigers only stranded 2.
At the plate, the Tigers were led by Max Lucas’s hitting. Lucas went 2-2 and scored two runs.
Way to start off the season boys!
