HWSA Day 2 Recap- May 1st

Tuesday, May 1, 2012
Auburndale, Florida

NOAH Jaguars beat Spring, Tx Mustangs 10-5 in the third seeding game. 

Josh Ferguson started on the bump for the Jags to face the Spring Texas Mustangs.  The loser of this game drops to division III with the winner moving to the Qualifier round where a win puts your team into Division I  and a loss puts you in Division II.  Ferguson came out strong retiring six of the first seven batters in the first two innings stranding the lone baserunner on first after he had reached on an error. Jags jumped out to an early lead by scoring 4 runs in the first, 1 in the second and 2 in the third on 3 walks, triples by Joe Sabatini, Austin Dillingham and Austin Stevens. The Mustangs got on the scoreboard by plating a run on a single and double in the 4th inning. Third baseman MacKenzy Shipman had a put out and assist in the inning.  The 5th inning saw a couple of miscues and three hits and a walk to bring the Mustangs back to within 2 runs.  Wes Dominguez replaced Ferguson and got the last out to end the inning.  Dominguez pitched the 6th inning by walking two but coming back to retire the last 2 batters with K's and getting the save in the 10-5 Win.  The Jaguars now move to the Qualifier games looking for another win to move into the Platinum Division.

Jags will play Woodstock, GA on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. CST. If they win they will be in the Division 1 (Top 8) Bracket for the second year in a row.
