Despite getting just two hits against Hayden in the Minors All-Star semi-final game last week the Mt. Graham Little League All-Stars won 7-2 to move into tonight’s District 11 Championship Game.
Andrew Trujillo had both hits in the game but MGLL was able to take advantage of some errors and walks by the Hayden defense. Deagan Faunce pitched 4 and 1/3 innings and allowed just 1 unearned run. According to Head Coach Justin Echols Faunce was “lights out” on the hill and the defense was “stellar”.
MGLL will have a rematch with Hayden again tonight in the title game. Hayden defeated Pinal Mountain 16-15 in the play in game.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:30pm tonight in Hayden.
The winner will advance to the Minor All-Star State Tournament starting July 12th in Tempe.
