Midwest City, OK Routs Chesapeake, VA

Midwest City, the Mid-South Regional champions, made quite a statement in game 2 of the 2010 ALB World Series in Spokane, Washington.  Taking on one of the most balanced teams in the tournament, the Oklahoma natives ran away with a huge 18-2 seven inning victory.   In what may go down as one of the most unique boxscores in World Series history, all twenty-two hits were singles.  Can you believe it? Eighteen runs for Midwest City without an extra base hit.

Midwest City got the scoring going in their first at-bat, plating five runs in the top of the first inning.  To their credit, Chesapeake rallied for two in the bottom half of the inning.  Unfortunately, that was the extent of the offense for the Mid-Atlantic champs the rest of the way.

The Outlaws pounced, taking advantage of opportunity presented to them.  They scored two more in both the second and third innings.  They were held in check for the next two innings, before another five run outburst in the sixth and another for four runs in the seventh.  

Chesapeake managed just one hit after the first inning when they had two hits.  Starter Dean Ali had the worst outing of his career, getting roughed up for seven runs (six earned) in just one and a third innings.  Things didn't get any better from there for the Virginia champs, as relievers Josh Carter and James Bedi pitched two innings combined and gave up nine runs.

Midwest City starter Kevin Hill was dominant, going six innings and surrendering just two runs, one of which was earned.  He walked two and struck out a staggering fifteen batters, as all but three of the outs in that time from came on punchouts.  

The scary part?  Midwest City was without their best player, and possibly the top player in the tournament this week, in starting shortstop Jacob Realmuto who had a .920 slugging percentage last week.  

In his absence, the team put up 19 runs on 18 hits in seven innings.  Eight of nine starters had at least two hits.  The only starter without a hit, shortstop Alex Polston, had three rbis to his credit.

The loss drops Chesapeake, VA into a do or die situation for the rest of the week.  They'll take on the loser of Eden Prairie, MN and Roseburg, OR tomorrow afternoon at about 4pm eastern.

Midwest City, who has established themselves as a favorite, will take on the winner of that game featuring two storied teams at about 10pm eastern.
