Winkler 3 run homerun late is the difference.
Beechwood jumped up to a 2-0 lead.
Kavanaugh homerun makes it 2-1.
Highlands slowly takes control. First tying it up then getting up to a 6-2 lead after a 4 run inning.
Beechwood eeks back in to make it 6-4. Then came the Winkler homerun off the roof in center to make it 9-4. Beechwood makes it interesting, getting it to 9-6 in the bottom of the 7th, bringing Castleman to bat with the bases loaded but a ground out ends it. Nice job by Colin Hollingsworth to come into relief and get out of a few jams.
Really excited to eventually see this matchup again, two great teams, two great coaches.
