Not sure of the official name for our tournament this past weekend, but I have been calling it the Greensboro Grasshoppers/Southeast Guilford High Baseball Classic and it all came to a conclusion tonight at what now know is the, ‘NewBridge Bank Invitational’, at NewBridge Bank Park…
*****Only home run of the tournament came off of the bat of Bump Martin(McMichael) and it was a three-run shot to left field, in the top of the second inning, of the SEG game….*****
The Randleman Tigers take the title in the ‘Battle at the Bridge’…..In tonight’s Championship Game, Randleman defeated Wheatmore 4-2 in 8 Innings….
I can’t hold back, without a doubt, this was the best baseball that I had seen all season….Up until this tournament, I had been seeing blowout after blowout for the most part….We had 3-2 games, 3-1 games, 2-0 games, 4-3 games….It was crazy, they all were close….Even the 5-0 win by Southeast Guilford over Raleigh Leesville Road this morning, that game was close too….
Today we saw Southeast win the first game of the day and the final from the 10am contest was:Southeast 5, Leesville 0(WP:Cody Ezzell/LP:Sam Duncan)…Game Two today:Northern Guilford 3, McMichael 1(WP:Austin Coltrane/LP:Lucas Martin)…Game Three:Southeast Guilford 4, McMichael 3(WP:Will Greene/LP:John Hall)….Game Four:[Championship] Randleman 4, Wheatmore 2(WP:Gauge Gannt/LP:Cole Tickle)…..
