PORT ST. JOHN DEFEATS MIMS IN BASEBALL
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Wednesday, Major Softball got underway at Rockledge’s McKnight Family Sports Complex with Rockledge Little League meeting the All-Star team from Mims Little League.
ROCKLEDGE 8, MIMS 7: Evalisse Garcia went 3-for-4 for Mims Little League as they went into the bottom of the 6th inning trailing Rockledge 8-4. The Mims’ bats hammered away at the Rockledge lead to bring them within 1 run when an overthrown ball from the outfield gave Mims a chance to tie the game. But the Rockledge catcher retrieved the overthrow and tossed the ball to the pitcher in time to tag the runner at the plate for the 8-7 Rockledge victory in 6 complete innings. B. Snyder pitched the entire game for Rockledge to get the win.
PORT ST. JOHN 5, MIMS 0: At Mims’ Holder Park, both the Major and Senior baseball fields were under water. The Majors game was postponed until 1 p.m., Sunday. But with some coordination between the Mims and Port St. John Boards of Directors, the Senior Baseball division was moved down to Space Coast Communities Sports Complex. For Mims, Daemon Woodruff, Jonah Schwartz and Justin Coyle each hit singles. But Port St. John’s Connor Perrine had a double and a RBI, while Chase LeBlanc and Nicky Klezun each had RBI singles. Chase LeBlanc threw 6 innings and struck out 15 Mims batters for the 5-0 Port St. John win in 6 1/2 innings.
