Tune-up for the World Series
The Twelve went unbeaten in the tournament with Lexington’s upcoming freshman Derek Dane throwing another complete game. He threw only 78 pitches, giving up 1 run in the 6th inning. The Twelve scored 3 in the bottom of the 4th and 3 more in the bottom of the 6th, with two of those coming on a two-run homerun. From there on, Derek, along with a great defense, took care of the rest and completed the game with a 6- 1 victory over a very good Cy-Fair team.
The Championship game was to be the Austin Slam and the College Station Twelve going head to head, but after only 1/3 of an inning, the clouds opened up and made the fields unplayable. Derek has only 1 loss for the season in any games he started and he has only given up more than 2 runs in a game once all year.
The Twelve looked very sharp in their final tune-up before they prepare to travel to Colorado to play teams from California, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Texas, Washington and Wyoming.
