    Clemmons also scored 2 runs . His single up the middle tied the game3 to 3. His steal to home from second base put the green team ahead 4 to 3. His triple hit the fence in center field. He also made some great catches with his speed. He has had a great east zone performance and one hec of a game in the world series.

    The Greensboro all stars played a great game. With the 3 run homer in the 4th by Central Michigan and down 3 to 2 this Greensboro Team came back like true winners. Hudgens did a great job pitching along with Mikita. Corey McKinney hit the ball well and scored when we needed it. Cal Sutphin had a good game along with Tivo . Sawyer did great at the catcher position and had a good hit. Carter had a hit when we needed it. Not only are these guys good at baseball they are good kids. They have really come together as a team. The way they played today they can beat anyone in this tournament. Good luck guys.
