Tune-up for the World Series

Lexington’s upcoming freshman, Derek Dane, is seen throwing another game during a “tune-up” series leading him and his team, The College Station Twelve 13U, to the World Series in Colorado. The College Station Twelve 13U took the field for their last Nations Tournament of the season before heading to Colorado for their World Series appearance.

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.
