Anbinder 10U takes home some more bling as Runners Up in the USSSA 10U C Firecracker Tournament this weekend. After coming from back from a 5 run deficit to defeat the Glory Red 10U team in the first game on Sunday, the 10U Anbinder team next faced the 2nd seeded Eastern Shore Velocity who came armed with a battalion of fans who were ready to take home a win. Sage jumped to an early 2-0 lead and kept up the pace to take the semi final game 7-2. Sage 10U faced the Firebirds in the championship games but after two competitive, hot games, Sage 10U got off to a slow start and the Firebirds were able to jump off with a quick 4-0 lead after one inning. It looked all but over and done when in the bottom of the 5th inning, the girls found a reserve of energy and started an epic come back. Coming from 6-1, the team managed to test the Firebirds' pitcher just to fall short and lose the game 6-5 in the end. The girls fought hard and claim the proud title of Runners Up in the tournament.

Anbinder 10U Nabs Win Over HRYS Glory in Championship of Summer Jam NIT!
The Sage 10U team battled all day starting with a win over the seemingly unbeatable Post 290 Bombers (after falling to them 4-2 in Saturday's Pool Play). They followed up with another win against the Stingrays who had momentum coming into the second game after coming from behind in the bottom of the last inning with 2 outs to defeat the Comets 6-5. But they were no match for Sage fiery offense and impenetrable defense. The Championship game against the HRYS Glory seemed insurmountable since the Sage team has not been able to secure a victory against this newly bumped up B team. But the Sage team started the game with only one possible ending - Championship! Scoring 4 runs in the first inning, the HRYS Glory was not able to gain it's footing and ended up running through 4 pitchers before accepting defeat. Sage wins it 10-5 to take home the GOLD!
