>Once again the USMLB will see there World Series come to a game seven and with the way this series as gone it could be anyone’s game. The Brave Vawts will send Samual West to the mound who had won game three of the series while the Monterrey Stars will counter with Brandon Ellis who is starting is third game which he had lost game 4 in the series.
The game started out with a bang as Wade May started out the scoring with an RBI single that scored Ellie Bowman who lead of the game with a single. Ellis was able to get out of the first inning jam with getting Frank Surtain to ground into a 3-6-3 double play. West got through the bottom of the first pretty quick only allow a single to Ricardo Ramirez. At the end of the first inning Brave Vawts 1 – Stars 0.
The Vawts scored once again in the second inning when Mitch Durbin who had been quite until game six hit his first homerun of the series smashing the ball over the right-centerfield fence. The Crowd in Monterrey who was very loud went silent with this homerun. The crowd got right back into the game with Jackson Cooper lead of the bottom of the second inning with a homerun of his, the second one in the series for him. West got into some trouble after this having men on third and first with two outs before getting Brain Turner to end the inning on a short flyball that softly lands into the glove of the right fielder Nick Collins. After the second inning Brave Vawts 2 – Stars 1.
Ellis was able to get a one-two-three inning in the top of the third. West struggled again in the bottom of the third as he gave a leadoff single to Ricardo Ramirez and then walked Mike Bonds but got the next three batters with a strikeout and two ground outs. After three innings Brave Vawts 2 – Stars 1.
In the fourth Ellis only gave a single to Surtain as he got Durbin to look at a called third strike. Clem Barkley lead of the bottom of the fourth inning with a single but that was quickly earsed as Bobby Henry hit into a 3-6-3 double play to kill any rally the Stars where thinking about. After four inning the Brave Vawts 2 – Stars.
Ellis once again flew through the top of the fifth inning getting two flyouts and gourndout. In the bottom of the fifth inning Mike Bond crushed his second homerun of the series to get the game tied up at two. West was able to get through the second two batters without any trouble. After five innings Brave Vawts 2 – Stars 2.
In the top of the sixth inning the Vawts had a good rally going as Collins led of the inning with a walk and then Wade May hit a single two batters later to put runners on first and third with one out. Ellis dug deep to strikeout Surtain and then getting Aubrey Hutchinson to flyout to the centerfielder to end the inning. West look like he was going to coast through the bottom sixth until Henry got a two out triple then pinch hitter Mike Sewell got a walk. West finally ended the inning by getting Turner to flyout to deep left-centerfield to end the inning. The crowd almost came out of there seats thinking that was a big three run homerun. After six inning Brave Vawts 2 – Stars 2.
In the top of seventh Jeremy Morris comes in the relieve Ellis and all he does is give up a walk to the pitcher before ending the inning with a groundout by Ellis Bowman. West had no problems in the bottom of the seventh getting a 1-2-3 inning. After seven inning Brave Vawts 2 – Stars 2.
In the top of the eighth Morris only gave up a single to Cookie Pena before being relieved by Mel Reed who then got Surtain to fly out on the warning track in rightfield. Surtain hit that ball hard as there wasn’t any wind to hold that ball in the ballpark so I don’t know what happened. The eighth inning started out good for West has he got Cooper to ground out to become the first out of the inning but then the inning got horrible bad for the Vawts. Rondell Lowe then hit a single followed by another single by Barkley then Henry hit a RBI double scoring in Lowe and putting runners on third and second with only one out. Walt Lohse came in to become the pinch hitter for Reed and smacked a two RBI triple to bring the score Stars 5 Vawts 2. Lohse had only gotten 2 at bats so far this series but hadn’t gotten a hit until then. The Vawts bring in Gil Lefebvre to stop the bleeding but Lefebvre gives up a three run homerun that bouces off the top of the fence and lands on the other side. The fans in Monterrey really begin to rock the stadium to level which as never been seen here. Lefebvre was able to get the next to batters but the damage had already been done. After eight inning Stars 8 -Brave Vawts 2.
Casey Gumbert will make his first apperance of the series to pitch the ninth inning and does get into some trouble with giving up a double to Luis Carreras and then walking pinch hitter Mac Johnson but ended the game with a weak ground ball by Bowman. The Stars claim there second straight World Series title.
