The Baby Breds are now 20-0, as they sweep Dixie this afternoon. In Game One, 7th Grader Brooke Bihl goes the distance, as the Breds win 4-1.
In Game Two, 8th Grader Riley McDermott goes the distance to record the win. This one had some excitement in the final two Dixie at bats. In the top of 4, 7th grade SS Sam Grause turns a "beautiful" 6-3 double play to thwart a Dixie rally. Then we go to the top of 5 for some real dramatics.
With NewCath up 7-3, Dixie starts to mount a comeback, but some stellar defense puts an end to it to preserve the "Perfect Season". The inning started with a fly-out to Daddy's Little Girl 3.0, Megan Burkart in centerfield. Then with one out and a runner on 2nd the Dixie batter hits a "flare" behind the 5-6 hole, as the Dixie player on 2nd races home, Breds SS Sam Grause throws a "seed" to Kacy Zimmerman at the plate and the ensuing "collision" results in out #2
. Finally, with two out and two on, Dixie player hits an absolute "missile" to the left field fence, however she got a little greedy and was thrown out at 3rd, 7 (Sophie Kroger) 6 (Jenna Fryer) 5 (Katie Kelly) to end the game.
Next up for the Baby Breds is a date with the Baby Birds at the Birdcage on Thursday.
