District 9 DYB AAA (Minors) Tournament: West Robeson American 7, Elizabethtown 2
The game began on Saturday but after Davion Lewis and Cole Butler drew walks, rain suspended play until Sunday. After both runners advanced on a passed ball, Garrett Dunham launched a sacrifice fly to right-centerfield that scored Lewis and a throwing error on the play scored Butler for a 2-0 Elizabethtown lead.
West Robeson turned a hit batter and 2 singles into a run in the home half of the first and trimmed the margin to 2-1. Elizabethtown held the 2-1 lead until the home half of the fourth.
Three walks, a wild pitch and a short sacrifice fly plated a pair of two-out runs and put West Robeson ahead 3-2. Two walks and two West Robeson hits plated 4 more runs, before a diving catch by Colton Daly in rightfield ended the inning.
Butler lined a single to leftfield in the sixth inning for the only Elizabethtown hit.
Dunham started on the mound for Elizabethtown and pitched 3.2 innings allowing 5 runs on 4 walks and 3 hits while striking out two. Torrean Cogdell worked 1.1 innings of relief and gave up 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out one.Share:
