DISTRICT 38 LITTLE LEAGUE

11-12 NON-SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT

FREDONIA — Tate Catanese tossed a complete-game four-hitter, striking out four as Southwestern beat Fredonia 13-3 in the championship game.

Southwestern was solid on defense for the second game in as many days, including the last inning in which Seth Vaughn stopped a hard grounder and completed the force out of a lead runner at second and Kyler Wojtowicz threw out a base runner attempting to steal second before Catanese struck out the last batter.

Southwestern’s offense scored 13 runs on 14 hits. The top five batters in Southwestern’s lineup accounted for 12 of the 13 runs. Chase Hartnett was 3 for 3 with three runs scored, Wojtowicz was 3 for 3 with three runs scored, Tate Catanese was 3 for 3 with a double and triple, Brody Larson was 2 for 3 with a triple, and Judd Harris was 2 for 3 with a double.

Fredonia’s Colin Luce slides into third base.

Southwestern finished the tournament 7-0, scoring a total of 78 runs and only allowing 20 over the seven-game span.
