2010 SEAA World Series Pigeon Forge, TN
Pool Game 1
Milford Rockstars (Atlanta, GA) vs. Lincoln Storm (Chicago, ILL)
Score: 5 – 11 LOSS
After winning 1st place in 3 of their last 5 tournaments as a class B team and placing 2nd in the other tournaments this summer, the Milford Rockstars took the first step into playing ASA class A ball in the fall with a trip to Tennessee for the SEAA World Series.
The first game against the Lincoln Storm started off as a wakeup call for the girls! In the very first inning the team was bombarded by 11 runs, 4 coming off of a grand slam by the Storm and 4 errors from defense. All was not lost. For the next four innings with Jada on the mound the Storm were baffled by the change up and put up goose eggs for the next four innings.
With time expired in the bottom of the 5th inning, Kyah (on her birthday) started the rally that would show that the Rockstars belong and are ready to compete. Amira, Crystal and Kiana followed with hits to rally the team and put our first points on the board for the tournament. By the end of the game the girls had place five runs on the board and gained the confidence to compete against anyone! Going into the second day of pool play the girls are full of confidence and really believe they can play with anyone!
THE SAGA CONTINUES………GO ROCKSTARS!
Pool Game 2
MILFORD ROCKSTARZ vs. TENNESSEE OUTLAWS
Score: 3 – 4 LOSS
Game 2 for the Milford Rockstars yielded much better results than game 1. Unfortunately, the Outlaws were the home team and had the last bat.
The start of game 2 the girls began the game hitting the ball well. Scoring 2 runs in the first inning and another in the 2nd inning they took a 3 – 0 lead into the 3rd. Things started to unravel after a batter was struck by a pitch, then an error off of a hit 2 center field moving the runner to second base. Two passed balls later the Outlaws scored their first run followed by 2 passed balls to score runners to tie the score at 3 all. The winning run came off a hit in the final inning. This was a very hard loss for the team. They were in control until the last inning when it all unraveled.
As the team goes into day 3 of the tournament and begin bracket play there are many more positives to be taken from this loss than the first. Starting with consistent hitting from the top to the bottom is what we need. Tomorrow the tournament really starts.
Let the games begin!
GM 3 Bracket Play
Milford Rockstars vs. Team Cherokee
Score 4 – 0 WIN
They say, three is the magic number and it definitely was for the Rockstars! Day 3 and the beginning of bracket play was the first time parents saw the girls they have come accustomed to seeing over the last 6 weeks. The first inning started well with the 2, 3 and 4 batters (Dani, Joriea, and Jada) hitting 2 singles and a double to put the Rockstars up 2 to 0 and the Rockstars sending 7 batters to the plate before being retired. Victoria then took the mound and 1,2,3 and the team is back in the dugout to bat. The second inning was not as prosperous but the sticks were still live. Defense is where the team shined.
By the third inning Team Cherokee was just making it way to the top of the order and moved the first batter into scoring positions on 2nd and 1st with one out. The next batter hit a rope in the gap between the shortstop and 2nd base that would normally be a least a single. Not this time! As both players converged the shot was caught for an out and Dani (playing second base) tagged 2nd base and we were out of the inning.
The final inning only one run was generated on by the Rockstars but the team was rock solid on defense. The first out for the Rockstars came on one of the better defensive play from and outfielder this summer. With a runner on second, a line drive to center cleared the infield and the lead-off hitter for Team Cherokee was off to the races. Amira catches the ball on one hop and sends a perfect throw to third base on a rope. Out #1 was officially in the books. After pitching the entire game Victoria started to tire on a couple of pitches and had allowed 2 runners on with 2 errors (Dani and Victoria T) Team Cherokee now had runners in scoring position on 2nd and 3rd. . Kiana, playing catcher, did not allow any passed balls when it counted most. The next play was by Coach Victor. Just before time expired a pitching change was made. Joriea takes the mound and the first batter she faces hits a bullet just above her head that she reaches for and bobbles, the ball falls behind her, she turns and bobbles it again. The runner at 3rd base takes off; Joriea catches the ball for out #2, shows that smile and calmly tosses the ball to 3rd base for out number three and the second double play of the game. Ball Game…. Rockstars win…
With the win, the girls guaranteed themselves at least 2 more games and another trip to the go-carts on the strip!
