It may have not been the prettiest baseball game ever, but it was the win that counts the most as the Brewton 13-year-old Babe Ruth team crushed the Evergreen All-Stars Thursday night in Evergreen 22-1.
The Brewton team jumped on Evergreen early and often as they scored eight runs in the first inning to grab an early 8-0 lead after the top of the first inning.
After being shut down with no runs in the second inning, the Brewton team scored 14 runs in the inning to grab a 22-0 lead after two and a half innings of play.
After taking the early 22-0 lead, and needing five innings of play for a complete and official game, Evergreen scored one run in the bottom of the inning and both teams decided to forfeit their last six hitters as Brewton took the 22-1 win.
With the 22-1 win, Brewton advanced to Friday's winner's bracket game and faced Monroe County at 5:30 p.m.
Monroe County defeated Atmore 10-5 in the opening game of the tournament.
In Brewton's game, the starting Brewton pitcher went two innings on the mound to earn the win as Dalton Evans and Caleb Stewart pitched in relief in the win.
All three Brewton pitchers combined for a no hitter in the win. Dehoff went two innings and had five strikeouts, two walks and no runs. Evans walked two batters and was charged with a run as Stewart closed out the game with two strikeouts.
Offensively for the Brewton All Stars, Dehoff and Ryan Hunt led at the plate with a 3-for-4 night with three singles each.
Hunter Mullins and William Whittle both went 2-for-4 with two singles. Josh Maloy, Cam Blackman and Jeremy Myers all went 1-for-2 with a single.
Dalton Evans went 1-for-4 on the night with a single.
In the top of the first inning, Hunt reached on a walk followed by Cody Smith's walk. Mullins singled in both runners for Brewton as they took an early 2-0 lead.
Wes Maddox then sacrifice bunted Mullins in for a run to give Brewton a 3-0 lead.
Following the sacrifice bunt by Maddox, Dehoff, Blackman, Evans, Whittle and Hunt all singled consecutively and Jeremy Myers added a single as Brewton held an 8-0 lead after the top of the first inning.
After two leadoff walks by Dehoff in the bottom of the first inning to put runners on first and second, Dehoff struck out three batters in a row for Brewton.
Brewton was then shutout in the second inning, but Dehoff struck out two of four batters in the second inning to keep Brewton with an 8-0 lead.
In the top of the third inning, Brewton scored 14 runs on six hits, nine walks, and one hit batter to claim a 22-0 lead to put the game out of reach.
Evergreen added a late run in the game to cut the lead to 22-1, but that would be the only run of the game for the Evergreen All-Stars as Brewton won 22-1.
Brewton was scheduled to take on Monroe County Friday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. in the winners bracket of the 13-year-old tournament.
