Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico 16, Greensboro 1
from www.jconline.com:Greensboro, the East Zone champion, lost its tournament opener to Area Zone representative Hoosier North on a controversial play in the bottom of the seventh. It then won five straight games, including Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon victories over Los Gatos.
Greensboro scored eight first-inning runs in that afternoon game, capped by a three-run home run from No. 9 hitter Brody Holloman. But it stranded five runners in the first two innings in the championship and couldn’t keep pace with the Puerto Rico onslaught.
“They just came out swinging – I guess they were hungry,” said Camden Williamson, who scored Greensboro’s only run on Kevin Westlake’s two-out triple in the fifth inning. “We had no errors, so we can’t do anything about that. We just asked our pitchers to throw strikes, and they came out and hit.”
Greensboro, which made its 12th appearance in Lafayette in 13 years, sought its first Colt World Series championship since 1965.
“We stayed together as a team,” Williamson said of fighting through the loser’s bracket. “We didn’t let that get us down. We fought. That’s all we can ask for.”(from www.jconline.com)
