Roseburg, OR Sends Moline, IL Packing

The day began with just six teams left remaining in the country, though only four would survive and advance to Monday's action.  Roseburg, the Northwest Regional champs, rallied from a four run deficit to defeat Moline, IL 9-7.  A six run fifth inning proved to be the difference in this one.


Moline took the lead early with a run in the top of the first.  Roseburg countered to tie the game in the bottom half of the second.  After a scoreless third, Moline jumped out in front with three in the fourth and another run in the fifth.  Roseburg capitalized on two errors by the Great Lakes Regional champs to put six runs on the board in the bottom of the fifth.  


To their credit, Moline rallied to tie the game in their half of the sixth.  The tie was short-lived, however, as Roseburg plated the decisive two runs in the bottom of the inning.  It was in no way a defensive showcase, as eight errors led to six unearned runs.


Jared Priestley, Roseburg's starting pitcher, threw five and a third innings and surrendered seven runs (four earned) on ten hits.  Dakota Cavens came on and earned the win, pitching three and two thirds flawless innings.  Moline's starter, Seth Fuller, gave up seven runs (five earned) in just over four innings of work.  The relievers rounded out the eight innings of work by giving up two runs.


Roseburg's heart of the order provided most of the offense, led by designated hitter Vince Ampi who had four rbis on the day.  Dakota Bacus, the right fielder for Moline, had the best day for his team as he went two for three with two rbis in what was a pretty balanced offensive attack.


Moline's successful season ends with an overall record of 42-9, with an Illinois state and Great Lakes Regional titles.  Roseburg, OR moves on to the fourth day of competition where their opponent and game time will be determined by the outcome of the winner's bracket final later this evening.
