Henry got the start for the Goblins, and was extremely durable, pitching all the way to the pitch limit. Bennet pitched in relief, and Leo got the save.
The Goblins bats were on fire early, scoring four runs in each of the first two innings. They then scored two more in the third, and held off WSLL1 with defense. Everyone reached base during the game. Alex, Henry, Bobby, Ryan and Leo all reached base multiple times. Bennet added a triple, and Tyson added a double. Rory also had a great hit, and Nate and Noah both had crucial walks leading to runs.
The Goblins' defense showed up as well against a hard hitting WSLL team. Ryan made two difficult put outs from shortstop, and Tyson caught a hard line drive in the first. Several players made critical throws from the outfield to hold runners. On the mound in the sixth, Leo made two put outs, the second of which was followed by a spectacular throw from Nate and an excellent tag from Alex to complete a double play for the final out of the game at home plate.
The Goblins will play in the championship game WednesdayWednesday night at 6:00 at Fort Hunt Elementary School
