West Seattle unloaded a strong arsenal of offense for success in its latest tourney triumph.
Ulee Hammer's grand slam homer in the bottom of the fifth finally allowed the District VII West Seattle Little League Majors ages 11-12 baseball All-Stars to subdue District IV Camas 21-8 in a 10-run mercy rule first round victory of the 2014 Washington State tournament hosted by District VII at West Seattle's Bar-S Fields on Sat., July 12.
"We're still grinding," said West Seattle manager Jason Woodward. "I saw good body language. They were cool and calm. Hitting was great."
For the first three innings, the teams exchanged scoring shots evenly.
Camas initiated proceedings with Dante Humble's solo homer on the second pitch of the game fueling a 3-run District IV visitor's introduction.
From the top of the West Seattle batting order, Henry Muench tattooed a lead off home run in the home at bat of the same inning to ignite a trio of WS runs that also featured Hammer's run-scoring double.More ›
