Vipers Win Invitational Tournament at BG

The Vipers won 12U invitational tournament at Bowling Green this past weekend.
 
Fresh off a runners-up performance in Benton last weekend, the Vipers started in Bowling Green with a win in their first pool play game behind a strong pitching performance by Jacob Main (now 4-2). Main went 4 innings, giving up just 3 hits, 3 runs and striking out 7. The Vipers were able to run rule the West Kentucky Jayhawks by getting a 10 run lead after 4 innings of play. The Vipers were led offensively by Evan Seay 2 for 2, 3-Run HR, 2R, 3RBI – Rhett Cardwell 2 for 2, 2-Run HR, 2R, 2RBI – Bo Robison 2 for 2, 1R, 1RBI – Zac Shoulders 2 for 2, 1R, 1RBI. Vipers win 13-3.
 
The Vipers played back to back games Saturday night, and in the nightcap they were able to win against the South Kentucky Wicked Youth.  Zac Shoulders took the mound and was able to pitch a 3 inning contest to win on mercy run rule again, this time by having a 15 run lead after 3 innings of play. Shoulders (now 4-3) got off to a rocky start by giving up a 2-run homerun in the top of the first. But then shut down the Wicked Youth through the remainder of the game, giving up those two runs on two hits and striking out 4. Offensive leaders for the game include Jake Main 3 for 3, 3R, 6RBI – Zac Shoulders 2 for 2, 2R, 2RBI – Evan Seay 2 for 2, 2R, 1RBI – Brennon McWorthy 2-run homerun. With this 17-2 win, the Vipers enter the single elimination tournament on Sunday as the #1 seed.
 
The #4 seeded Jayhawks fought Sunday morning to earn to right to play the Vipers after winning the #4 vs. #5 game. Jacob Tapp started on the mound for the Vipers and pitched an awesome game and another Vipers victory, going 3 innings and giving up 1 run on 2 hits, while striking out 7. Tapp helped himself offensively with a solo home run in the bottom of the third and finishing 2 for 2. Seay got the nod to close on the hill, pitching the fourth and final inning giving up 3 hits and 2 runs. Offensive support was also provided by Evan Seay 3 for 3, 2R, 3RBI – Bo Robison 3 for 3, 1R, 1RBI – Trey Hutchison 2 for 3, 1R, 1RBI. The Vipers advance to the championship game 11-3.
 
Brennon Quertermous started on the hill for the Vipers in the afternoon championship game against the host team from Bowling Green, the Bearcats. Quertermous was able to get through 5 innings of shut-out baseball in 95 degree weather. He gave up just 3 hits, no runs and had 6K’s, before handing over the closing duties to Shoulders. The Bearcats took advantage of the new pitcher and scored 2 in the top of the 6th, before the Viper were able to get the third out and claim the title. Seay stayed hot with bat to lead the Vipers offensively with another homerun, 2 for 2 for the game, 3R and 3RBI.
 
For the weekend the Vipers were led by the bat of Evan Seay with 2HR and 1.000 BA.  As a team the Vipers hit .580 BA on the weekend and played nearly error free baseball.  The Viper will be back in the Bowling Green area next weekend completing in a USSSA sponsored event at Warren County’s White Park.
