No washout in Flint-region secondary school All-Star ball game after Gold group deletes 7-0 shortfall

There were no washouts Monday in the yearly Mott Community College High School Baseball All-State Game at Whaley Park.

The previously run returned home when Braden Rather of Goodrich was hit by a pitch with the bases stacked and the Gold made it 7-3 when Peter Stewart of Ortonville Brandon and Mason Cook of Lake Fenton drew bases-stacked strolls.

Logan Angel of Fenton followed the strolls with a bases-stacked twofold that scored three additional runs and pulled the Gold inside 7-6.

In the highest point of the 10th, the Gold’s Brendan Alvord of Fenton singled pointedly to focus to tie it 7-7 and Cody Easton of Kearsley followed with a solitary to put the Gold on top 8-7.

Yet, the Black wasn’t done as Caleb Stahr of Corunna singled in the lower part of the 10th to tie it 8-8.

Stahr was named the Black group’s Most Valuable Player after getting done with three RBIs on a solitary and twofold. J.D. Garman of Powers Catholic added two hits and two RBIs for the Black, Cam Orr of New Lothrop had two RBIs and Aiden Brushaber of Flushing contributed two hits.

Nolan Jackson of Holly was named the Gold MVP after arriving at base multiple times. He had two hits, strolled twice and scored a run.

Alvord and Jacob Stewart of Swartz Creek shared the Mr. Baseball Award and Hayden Bailey of Davison was named the most remarkable pitcher after throwing two scoreless innings and striking out three for the Black group.
