It was a pitcher's duel between Mid-Island Little League and Post Oak Little League from Houston, TX, but Mid-Island took a 2-1 win to stay undefeated in Williamsport.
Gregory Bruno, who is Mid-Island's ace, tossed 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball to keep Houston's lineup at bay throughout the afternoon. Bruno also collected six strikeouts as well.
Houston had their ace in Ryan Selvaggi on the mound as well, and he was dealing early on. In the bottom of the third, though, Mid-Island finally struck after getting back-to-back hits. Selvaggi, then, got a little wild, tossing two errant pitches that allowed a run to score.
