Team Pacific Southwest
There are two players on base for the Colorado team, Zane Pavelko on first and Jaxon Riley Combs on third. Riley-Combs has a stoic look to on his face but he is completely locked in. He has been playing with an aggressive mindset all day.
When the next at batter came up to the plate Jaxon edged off the base. When his teammate struck out there was a pause imbued with confusion. The first base catcher and the pitcher turned their backs on third base and were facing the 2nd base. That’s when Riley-Combs who is tall for his age took off. Using his long stride Riley-Combs makes more than halfway to home before the pitcher and catcher even realize he’s took off. The pitcher tries to recover at the last minute and get it to the first base catcher but by that time Riley Combs easily slides into Home Base. That ended up being the game winning run in the 5th inning.
When asked how he is able to play in such an aggressive mindset Jaxon Riley-Combs responded with, “We just had to stay in there the whole time, we only got got one hit that whole game , we just had to stay in there.”
On Mililani KC team Evan Elarionoff had himself quite a game. Even though the outcome didn’t come out in his favor. He blasted one out of the park for a home run and also added two RBI’s to his stat line.
Colorado and Mililani were toe to toe throughout the entire game. It was tightly contested with pretty staunch defense and pitching on both sides. The tightly contested game ultimately ended 3-2 with Colorado coming through with the clutch run.
