Deer Park, Texas Earn Their First Victory of the World Series

Deer Park, Texas earns their first win of the 2019 Mustang-9 World Series 14-7 over Wilmington, North Carolina.

The South Zone Champions struck first in the bottom of the first inning courtesy of a Paxton Garcia double to left field. However, their first lead would be short-lived as North Carolina brought in two runs in the top of the second inning. Ashton Troutman singled up the middle, scoring Lincoln Scharf from third base. Two batters later, Briggs Ulrich grounded out to shortstop, allowing Troutman to score.

Both the bottom of the second inning and the top of the third inning turned into a pitchers’ duel as both Briggs Ulrich and Mason Homan got outs for their respective teams in quick succession.

Down 2-1, Deer Park went on a run in the bottom of the third inning, scoring on a Kason Edwards flyout to second base and singles from Garcia and Cody Hickman to take a 4-2 lead. East Zone Champions North Carolina would answer, though, taking advantage of an error, a passed ball, Asher Stumpf’s two-run triple, and Grayson Roscoe’s effort to steal home for a 7-4 lead.

However one big inning was answered by another, as Deer Park scored nine runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 13-7 lead. Mason Homan scored first on a passed ball, then Kason Edwards doubled to left field to tie the game at 7-7. Garcia’s single brought in the go ahead run before an error and a walk added to the lead. Trey Riddle and Ethan Sauceda each singled to bring in runs as well.

From then on, it was all Deer Park, Texas as Wilmington’s offense was effectively stopped in the fifth and sixth innings. Garcia doubled for Deer Park to bring in the final run in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Paxton Garcia led all batters, going 4-for-4 at the plate with three RBIs. Asher Stumpf finished 1-for-2 with two RBIs to lead North Carolina. Mason Homan finished with four strikeouts for Texas, while both Briggs Ulrich and Ashton Troutman finished with two strikeouts for North Carolina.

With the win, Deer Park will play Torrance, California at 5:00 PM. Wilmington, NC will play Manila, Philippines at 2:30 PM
