Week 1 of the Select Series is in the Books. Leaderboards, Game Recaps, Top Performances and more.
A great first weekend of the Select Series at Live Oak Sports Complex to kick off 2Dsports youth travel baseball in Louisiana. The 13u Select Series South teams duked it out through the chilly weather and made a name for themselves after the first weekend.
We saw some very competitive games throughout the weekend. Here's a recap of some of the top games:
- Knights Knation Lafayette 13u had a combined no-hitter in their final game on Sunday. Jude Duplechin pitched 2.1 innings, allowing 0 hits and 0 runs while striking out 4 and only walking 1 batter. Maxim Credur and Tylus Metrejean both came in relief to close out the game and complete the No-Hitter in 5 innings.
- The Ascension Select Pirates 13u put up a whopping 15 runs in the 4th inning of their Sunday night game. The offensive firepower by the Pirates was led by Cooper Ladner, Braxton Billingsley, Quinten Elisar, Caleb Wall, Brock Comeaux, and Cade Delaune, who each had RBIs in the inning. The Ascension Select Pirates 13u racked up 14 hits in the game. Turner Goldsmith, Cooper Babin, Gavin Gregoire, Taylor Goldsmith, and Brock Comeaux each had multiple hits for Pirates.
- Rippz Baseball Academy 13u walked-off their Sunday night game with a dramatic 6th inning single by Jaden Ard. Wildcats Baseball 13u capped off their weekend with a walk-off triple by Braylin Kent on a 2-2 count, scoring 3 runs to win.
- In one of the most intense games of the weekend, the inner-program battle between Knights Knation Baton Rouge (Merrill) 13u and Knight Knation Baton Rouge (Brignac) 13u saw KK BR Brignac come out victorious after Mason Diaz's walk-off single to win 7-6.
- The Ascension Sun Devils 13u's bats were rolling in their Sunday nightcap game, plating 8 runs to carry them to a victory. The Sun Devils had 6 different players all tallied a hit, with Travis Henry bringing in 3 RBIs and Andrew Gibbons plating 2 runs.
