ANDERSON, SC – Ashton Davis and Cole Brisson teamed up to pitch a 2-hit shutout and strikeout 15 batters as they led Bladen County to a 5-0 victory over Alabama Friday in the Dixie Youth Baseball Majors Division 2 World Series.

Bladen County advances to a 2:30 p.m. winners bracket game Saturday against the Virginia state champions, which defeated the Georgia state runners-up 19-0.

Davis (pictured above) struck out the first 8 Alabama batters that he faced before hitting the 9th place hitter with a pitch with 2 out in the 3rd inning. Cole Brisson relieved and walked the 1st batter that he faced before ending the inning with a strikeout.

Brisson struck out 7 in his 3.1 innings on the mound and gave up 2 hits and 3 walks. Davis allowed only the hit batter to reach base in his 2.2 innings on the hill.

Bladen County catcher Corben Chadwick had a hit, scored a run and drove home a run Friday in a 5-0 win against Alabama in the Dixie Youth World Series in Anderson, S.C.

Corben Chadwick smoked a single to right-center field to start the Bladen 2nd inning. After Davis walked, Chadwick came around to score on a pair of wild pitches. Cole Brisson yanked a grounder to 3rd base that plated Davis and raced to 2nd base as the throw home eluded the Alabama catcher.

Cole Brisson dashed to 3rd base on a wild pitch and scored when Drake Gause lined a double down the right field line. An error on the play sent Gause to 3rd base and he scooted home on a wild pitch for a 4-0 Bladen lead.

Alabama loaded the bases in the 4th inning after 2 were out, but a forceout at 2nd base ended the inning.

Chase Bryan spanked a single through the right side to start the Bladen 5th inning, and Luke Bryant smacked an infield hit off the first baseman. Bryan tagged up and darted to 3rd on Gauge King’s fly ball to center field, then scored on Chadwick’s fielder’s choice to pad the lead to 5-0.

Cole Brisson struck out the first 2 batters in the 6th inning, then allowed a single to center field before a fly ball to left ended the game.
