Walk off home run wins it for the Snap Fitness A's.
The Majors A’s represented Four County LL in the first round of the District 2 Tournament of Champions today at Brunswick Little League against the representative from Frederick National. It was a very tight game the entire way with no team leading by more than one run at any point. National took the lead in the first inning with a couple of solid hits of A’s starter Charlie Ronan. However, Ronan (who pitched a complete game for the win) settled down and kept National scoreless for the next four innings. Meanwhile, the A’s fought back with a clutch two out hit by Zach Federici to score the tying run in the fourth inning. In the top of the fifth, Kyle “Pablo” Brodt made the defensive play of the game when he caught a fly ball in center field and quickly fired a strike to first base to double off the runner who had strayed too far off the bag. The A’s took the lead in the bottom of the fifth on an infield single by Dylan Nylander which scored Mayes Lane. Lane was on second to start the play, but he never stopped as he came around third and beat the first baseman’s throw to the plate. National tied the game with a clutch two out single in the top of the sixth. But, in the bottom of the sixth, with the score tied 2-2, Logan Buckner led off. On an 0-2 pitch he smashed a ball well over the center field fence for a walk off win for the A’s.
