Connecticut Team Advances to Babe Ruth World Series Game
The Norwalk Revolution are on the cusp of glory! The team of 13-15 year-olds are on the warpath and their last stop is the Babe Ruth World Series game. They qualified for semifinals after finishing pool play with a 3-1 record, and steamrolled Albany 10-1 to move on to the Championship match. The Revolution left their opponents in the dust early on; they scored 3 in the first inning, allowed the only run in the second, and then racked up seven unanswered points through the rest of the game.
Norwalk was incredibly efficient with their offense, ten runs on ten hits and six of those hits were extra base hits. As a cherry on top, Ethan Platt smashed a homer in the fourth inning to extend the Revolution's total. After the game, Alistair Morin won Player of The Game for his incredible pitching; he completed the six inning game while only giving up 3 hits and sitting down 11 opposing batters.
Norwalk was denied last year, but are just one game away from taking it all now. The final boss of the series is the host team: Bismark, North Dakota, and the showdown will take place Thursday night at 6pm EST.
