MVLL AAA Champions Crowned!

In a thrilling Minors AAA championship that featured seven lead changes between the league's top two seeds, the Grays emerged as City Champions when Davis Marshall singled home Brodie Williams in the bottom of the seventh to capture the trophy over the KC Monarchs, 9-8.

The game was forced into extra innings after a wild sixth inning that brought back Boyle Park magic and electricity, so welcome after a two-year respite. The Monarchs, down to their last out, saw Victoria Rice stroke a two-out, two-run single to give the Monarchs an 8-7 lead -- only to see the Grays answer when Michael Kievman smashed a clutch RBI double in the bottom of the sixth to tie it up.

Heroes abounded in the memorable matchup: Marshall struck out seven in three innings, went 2-for-2 and shined at shortstop. Williams went 2-for-3 with two doubles and was a force on the basepaths. Graz Cerchiai went 2-for-2 with two RBIs. The Monarchs answered with standouts of their own: Rory Murphy struck out seven in three innings, and went 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Jacob DiPippa had two hits and two RBIs and snuffed a rally with a sterling dig of a one-hopper at shortstop. Chance Donahue hit a double to the wall, and of course, Rice came through with the hit that lit up Boyle to keep the Monarchs alive.

The Grays finished the season 13-2, and the KC Monarchs wound up 12-3.
