WP: Jacob Sebade      LP: Junior Reed     
Summary: The first inning was disastrous for Hebron, as Pender used three hits, two walks, two hit batters and two errors to race to a 7-0 lead. The big difference in the game was that Pender started their ace, Jacob Sebade, and Hebron's didn't enter the game until the second inning trailing 7-0. Once Caleb Goedeken entered the game for Hebron, he threw slammed the breaks on and threw 4.2 scoreless innings. Meanwhile, Hebron chipped away at the lead but the deficit was too much to overcome. Devon Kaub hit a grand slam over the left field fence in the first inning for Pender. Hebron actually out hit Pender 10-5, with Goedeken, Simon Wiedel, Ben Hintz and Cameron Asche picking up two hits each. Hebron is eliminated, and will go home with a fourth-place finish in Class C. Pender advances to a semi-final with Malcolm.

Day 1

PWGSJon Simonson celebrates after getting a strikout to preserve a 1-0 win for PWGS.

Pitching Star: Jon Simonson, PWGS
On a day filled with brilliant pitching performances, Simonson rose to the top. In a complete game against Dodge-Scribner-Howells, who entered the tournament with a 21-1 record, Simonson was masterful. He gave up just one hit while striking out 12 batters to get the shutout win. He faced the minimum through the first five innings, picking off the only base runner he allowed during that span and striking out five straight batters at one point.

Offensive Star: Drew Zitek, Pender
Zitek was key to Pender's late-inning fireworks to beat Shelton-Gibbon. He slapped a double to drive in Pender's first run, tying the game in the bottom of the sixth inning. He then came around to score and give Pender its first lead. In the seventh inning, Zitek had a 2-out single to extend the inning, allowing Pender to win the game on the next at bat.

Defensive Star: Chase Wietfeld, North Bend-Morse Bluff
The Black Sox shortstop turned the rare unassisted double play to get North Bend out of an early jam, catching a line drive, then beating the runner back to second base. In the fifth inning, Wietfeld made the play of the day with a diving catch to his left to once again end the inning. Wietfeld ended the game with five assists and six putouts while playing error-free defense.

WP: Caleb Goedecken        LP: Trever Carroll
Summary: It was a classic pitchers' duel between Goedecken and Carroll. Hebron scored the game's only run in the third inning when a throw to third base during a steal attempt escaped into left field, bringing in Ben Hintz to score the unearned run. Carroll struck out 12 Hebron batters while taking the loss. Malcolm got two on with one out in the bottom of the seventh, but Hebron turned a double play (moments after blowing a possible game-ending double play) to end the game.

WP: Mitch Mailloux            LP: Gareth Stroh
Summary: After five scoreless innings, things got a little crazy. Pender took a seemingly comfortable lead of 4-1 into the seventh inning, but Shelton-Gibbon drew a couple of walks to start the seventh before John Harders hit a single. After and error and a ground out, Harders advanced to third, then snuck home when the defense was throwing the ball back to the pitcher to tie the game. However, Pender answered in the bottom of the seventh. Matt Urbanek reached on a error, them came around to score after base hits by Drew Zitek and Jacob Sebade. Sebade also started the game pitching for Pender, and was strong through six innings.

WP: Bronson Pahl            LP: Andrew Minarick
Summary: For a while it looked like we might have our third 1-0 game of the day, but after North Bend came within inches of a inning-ending double play in the sixth, Creighton made them pay with three runs. Levi Nelson cranked a double down the left field line for two RBI in the seventh to give Creighton some insurance. Anthony Dodge was 2-for-3 for North Bend-Morse Bluff, while Justin Wilmes was 2-for-4 for Creighton.
