Boyle Bugle Championships - 6/4/2023


Tigers 4, Mariners 0

Cedra Crews etched her name into Mill Valley LL City Championship lore with a brilliant complete-game shutout, lifting the Tigers to the title.

Crews allowed only one hit, walked only one and struck out four while using a parsimonious 63 pitches to handcuff the Mariners. Given the opportunity to finish the game in the sixth inning, the 12-year-old right-hander closed out a dream day with a 1-2-3 final frame.

It added up to the 4-seed Tigers claiming the trophy — after beating the 5-seed Giants, 8-6, and the 1-seed Red Sox, 12-1, to reach the title game.

The game was scoreless into the sixth because Crews was nearly matched by the Mariners starter, Oscar Karlen, who pitched 4 and 2/3 innings of shutout ball before reaching the pitch count limit. Karlen allowed just four hits and three walks while striking out eight to give his team a chance to win.

Forrest Slavin roped a tie-breaking two-run double in the top of the sixth, plating Miles Coley and Ethan Cann for a 2-0 lead. Declan Lam followed with an RBI double of his own, then scored when Erickson Kenyon singled. 

The four runs were more than enough for Crews, who made the day hers.

The 3-seed Mariners reached the title game with playoff wins over the 6-seed A’s, 3-2, and the 2-seed White Sox, 8-5 in an eight-inning epic semifinal.

Cubs 7, Grays 3 

A close game opened the Cubs’ way late when Ethan Weiss broke a tie with a two-out, two-run double in the fifth inning and Henry Ellis pitched a perfect sixth inning to give the Cubs the City Championship. The champs received key pitching from Ryan Lynch, who pitched 2 and 2/3 innings of one-hit ball.

Ellis went 2-for-3 and knocked a two-out RBI hit in the first inning, and Liam Connell started on the mound and and had a hit and two RBIs for the Cubs, who were the 2-seed after a 10-3 regular season.

The 5-seed Grays, who reached the final after upsetting the 1-seed Giants, enjoyed three strong innings on the hill from Walker Yaeger, while Declan Heidenreich crunched a key two-run double to start the game in the top of the first and give the Grays life.


Royals 9, Mets 8 

The Royals overcame a five-run first inning deficit to rally for a City Championship, plating five runs in the bottom of the fifth for the dramatic win in a title game between the top two seeds.

Knox Medow threw three shutout innings for the 1-seed Royals, while Cooper Maddex went 3-for-3, including a triple, and Les Stroud went 2-for-2 with two RBIs and collected the final out at first base after the 2-seed Mets threatened with runners on second and third.

For the Mets, Tyler Feduska hurled three strong innings and knocked two hits, and Evan Erickson laced a two-run double. Jasper Persson also smacked a double.

Defense marked the game as well, as the Royals’ Rhodes Tewksbury snared a line drive at second base and Nolan Corwin threw out a runner at second base. For the Mets, Colin Campasano snagged a line drive to snuff a Royals rally.
