Michigan Outlaws 16u Pratt wins the Davison Classic, earning their second berth to NSA Worlds!
The Outlaw 16u Pratt girls battled the heat along with each team that came their way. They cranked out 58 hits and scored 54 runs this weekend leading them to their championship! They started off the tournament scoring 7 runs in the first three innings, leading them to a 11-2 mercy over the Mayhem on Saturday morning. From there, they went on to play Line Drive Gold. The girls scored eight runs in the first three innings leading them to another mercy with a final score of 10-0. The girls had a break and a rain delay after their first two games. The extreme heat and bad weather couldn't stop this team from another victory as they turned out six runs in the second inning giving them a 10-1 win over the Northern Bay Blazers! This finished out their Saturday but left them knowing they would need to win back to back games on Sunday to get them to the championship game.
The Outlaw 16u Pratt team showed up Sunday morning ready to go all the way and started the day off by playing Edge. A superb sixth inning enabled the girls to come back from a 2-0 deficit to win the game 5-2. Immediately following the win against Edge, the girls played a tumultuous game against the Shamrocks from Battle Creek. The girls dug their way out of a 7-0 deficit to beat the Shamrocks 12-9. This win took the girls to the championship game where they would face the Foster Oilers from Marysville. It was a tie game at 1 run each until the Outlaw girls put up three runs in the fourth and an additional two runs in the fifth inning. The girls allowed two runs by the Oilers in the fifth, but held onto their lead to finish the game with a 6-3 win.
The girls faced some strong teams this weekend and battled hard to win the tournament. The win granted them a berth to the NSA World Series, which they had already earned a couple of weeks ago by placing 2nd in NSA States. The team is headed to Indianapolis on Monday morning to continue their battle and show the other forty-seven 16u teams at Worlds what Outlaw girls are made of!
