The Falls U14 Junior Phoenix Gray squad came home with the championship in the Pewaukee Battle of the Bases tournament on Saturday, May 20th. The good guys beat Oak Creek 5-3 in a back and forth battle, scoring the final two runs in the top of the 6th to break the tie, and then holding off the Oak Creek offensive, stranding the tying run on the base paths. They then put the Pewaukee Pirates away 19-5 thanks to a 16 run 2nd inning with 10 of the 11 Phoenix batters collecting hits in the inning. The Falls then beat Cedarburg in the championship game 15-6, scoring every inning. It was a great day for the boys in burgundy hitting .410/.474/.518 as a team. And although the bats were on fire, it should not overshadow the pitching and defense. The Phoenix fielders made clean plays throughout the day avoiding any big offensive innings by the opponents. And our pitchers scattered only 16 hits on the day, striking out 17 batters. It was an incredible team day taking home the hardware.
