GAME 3: SOUTH TROY DODGERS-2 FROZEN ROPES-DALLAS-1: South Troy stayed alive in the Connie Mack World Series and eliminated national powerhouse Frozen Ropes-Dallas with an exciting win on Tuesday afternoon. The win not only advances South Troy into the national SUPER SIX, but also has an element of big brother looking out for little brother, as the victory avenges a loss that the 15U Dodgers endured against the same Frozen Ropes-Dallas program in the Championship Game of the Ken Griffey, Jr. World Series last week. In today’s elimination game victory, South Troy struck first, when Alex Koshkarian singled home Sean Egan in the 2nd inning. In the bottom of the 2nd, Frozen Ropes loaded the bases with one out against South Troy starter Tyler Childrose, but Childrose struck out the next two Texas hitters to get out of the jam. In the 4th, Frozen Ropes threatened again. After Frozen Ropes pushed across the tying run, Jared Marquissee stepped on the hill for South Troy and induced a big inning ending double-play with the bases loaded. The scored stayed tied at 1-1 until the 7th when Darrian Blanks led of the Dodger half of the inning with a walk. On a hit and run, the terrifyingly quick Blanks was able to race to third on a ground-out by Kevin Smith to the right side. Josh Quesada then laid down a perfect suicide squeeze allowing Blanks to score. Brian Stanczuk pitched a strong final two innings for the win. The Dodgers now await their next opponent on Wednesday.
GAME 2: SOUTH TROY DODGERS-5 DETROIT METRO STARS-1: South Troy got their first win of the World Series Tournament on Sunday with a 5 to 1 decision over the Detroit Metro Stars.

Nick Cheseri (6 1/3, 1 Run, 5 K’s, 2 Hits) started for South Troy and pitched well. In the bottom of the 4th, South Troy’s Sean Egan made a fine catch on an errant throw, and then a heads up play to fire the ball to the plate as the runner on 2nd was trying to score. Danny Maynard dug the ball out of the dirt and applied the tag, keeping the game tied. The game stayed tied until the 6th, when South Troy put two runners on base via error, and Kevin Smith tripled them home with a deep fly to right field. Smith then scored on a squeeze bunt by Josh Quesada to make the score 5 to 1. In the 7th, Brian Stanczuk came in to get the final 2 outs for the save. South Troy continues play on Tuesday at 2:00 ET.
