On June 20 in Millersburg the West Holmes Youth Baseball (WHYB) u12 tournament got kicked-off at Deer Run Park. The first game on the bracket was the number four seed Team Wolfe who went up against the five-seed Team Felton.
Felton used a pair of five-runs innings, one in the fourth and one in the fifth, to open up a huge 10-0 lead and then they won in five innings 15-3.
Felton will now face off against the number one seed in the tournament, Team Eastep. That game is set for 6 p.m. in Millersburg.
Blake McCombs led the way for Team Felton with the bat as he hit two inside-the-park home runs and added a triple for his four hits. He drove home four runs and scored three himself.
Helping McCombs was Bronson Birchfield who did some hitting and some pitching. Birchfield got the win on the rubber, striking out five while also collecting two hits of his own at the plate.
Team Wolfe got an RBI triple from Mason Wolfe and Mason Taylor added a triple and a run. Wolfe falls to the loser’s bracket and will now face Team Yoder on June 21 at 8:00 p.m.
