Semi-Final, Friday, June 16: #1 seed Twin Cities vs #5 seed Mill Valley


Mill Valley 10, Twin Cities 9, 


This Mill Valley 9U team has grit. 


In the top of the 1st inning Twin Cities had a runner at third base with two outs and a deep backstop at Strawberry Field.  A wild pitch sent the runner home from third and pitcher Laszlo Winn crashed home plate, while catcher Jonas Jackson urgently ran to the ball, flipped it to Laszlo who put the tag down....OUT! This kept the game at 0-0.


In the top of the 2nd Twin Cities had another runner at  third with only one out. Twin Cities tries it again. The TC kid comes crashing down the third base line on a wild pitch. Jonas gets to the ball quickly, flips it to Laszlo who puts an amazing tag down, blocking the plate....OUT!!! 


Mill Valley had the momentum and were able to build a 2-0 lead with smart base running and a few key hits by Milo Davies (2-3 on the day), and Tate Shackleton (2-2), helping Mill Valley get their first lead. 


Twin Cities would not go away. They hit the ball hard and built a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the 4th. 


Mill Valley didn't back down. Big hits by Cameron Welstead (1-2), Paxton King (2-2) and Tate again gave Mill Valley a 6-4 lead going into the last inning. 


Laszlo Winn pitched a strong 3 2/3 innings with three strikeouts.


The wheels almost came off in the 6th inning for Mill Valley. Twin Cities bats got hot and hit the ball all over the field in the top of the 6th. TC scored 5 runs in that inning and Mill Valley needed to stop the bleeding. Cody Chittenden came in with 1 out and shut down Twin Cities, keeping the score at 9-6, Twin Cities. 


With Mill Valley down 3 runs, they are down to their last 3 outs. Cooper Maddex had an incredible at bat and was able to start the inning off with a walk. Ryder Glynn and Milo Davies smacked key hits, loading the bases loaded with no outs. 

Cody C was hit on the helmet scoring a run, making it 9-7.


With the bases still loaded Laszlo Winn hits a hard single, scoring a run to make it 9-8. Wyatt Droege (2-3) hits a ball over the 2nd baseman to tie the game at 9-9. — with the bases still loaded...and no outs. 


Jonas "Clutch" Jackson steps to the plate and takes a few big cuts. With two strikes he ropes a ball right down the third base line scoring Cody Chittenden to win the game 10-9 in another dramatic fashion! On to the Championship!!!



Quarter-Final, Thursday, June 15: #4 seed Novato South vs #5 seed Mill Valley


Mill Valley 7, Novato South 6


On a cool afternoon at Boyle Majors, Mill Valley dug themselves into an early hole and were down 6-0 in the 2nd inning.


 This resilient group of boys battled back and got 2 runs in the bottom of the 2nd, with key hits coming from Cameron Welstead who went 2-3 on the day and Jonas Jackson who went 2-3 as well. 


After the 2nd inning Novato South never got another run. 


Starting pitcher Tyler Feduska kept Mill Valley in the game with a strong 4 1/3 innings and had three strikeouts.


The 5th inning was pivotal. Three straight walks to begin the 5th set up a Wyatt Droege double and Mill Valley was able to score 3 runs in the 5th, making it a 1 run game going into the last inning. 


Laszlo Winn relieved Tyler for Mill Valley and pitched a perfect 6th inning. The bottom of the 6th started with a walk to Cameron and then Paxton King came to the plate. Pax ripped a triple to the deep left corner, scoring Cam and tying the game. 


Novato South decided to intentionally walk the next two batters, making it bases loaded with no outs, and Jonas Jackson at the plate. Jonas didn't waste any time and smoked a ball over the third baseman's head to end the game, sending Mill Valley to the semi finals!
