Giant win for the Giants

In Tassajara Valley Little League play, the Braves defeated the Giants last month, 9-2, to force a second championship game, in which the Giants scored two runs in the top half of the first, and the Braves responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first.

The Giants scored single runs in the top of the second and top of the third innings to take a 4-2 lead. The Braves rallied with three runs in the bottom of the third to take a 5-4 lead, highlighted by Nathan Landman's two run homerun. The Giants scored three runs in the top of the fifth inning to take a 7-5 lead, then the Braves scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth to tie the game at 7-7. The Giants then scored two runs in the top of the sixth, highlighted by Marc Heller's go-ahead RBI infield single.

The Braves had runners on base in the bottom of the sixth, but the Giants pitcher "Steven" pitched out of it to earn the save and the Giants prevailed 9-7 in an outstanding game.

Giants are Blake Dougherty, Adam Wooten, Sean McGowan, Brandon Bol, Jack Milne, Marc Hellerk, Boston Hubbard, Mitchell Yep, Brendan Cindric, Steven Anderson, Bailey Hubbard, Austin McFarlane, Brian Cindric, Steve Milne and Dirk Dougherty.
