HOME RUNS HELP WEST DEFEAT MID-ATLANTIC IN GAME SEVEN OF THE 2007 LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES

WILLIAMSPORT, PA (August 18, 2007)… Game Seven of the 2007 Little League World Series was filled with home runs, including the first pitch when West’s Seth Fretheim hit one over the fence. After three more runs for the West, the Mid-Atlantic team from Salisbury, Maryland was eager to show the crowd how they won the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship. After stealing third, Seth Windmuller scored for Salisbury. “I always tell myself not to swing at the first pitch unless it’s right up the middle,” said West’s Seth Fretheim when asked about hitting a home run on the first pitch of the game, “It was right up the middle, so I had to swing at it.”

West’s Luke Parrish started the second inning with a home run bringing Seth Fretheim and Cody Bellinger with him to make it 7-1 West. Mid-Atlantic’s Craig East hit a home run late in the second inning brining Seth Windmuller and Scott McGiffin with him scoring three points for Mid-Atlantic.

Cody Bellinger started the third inning hitting a home run making the score 9-4 after Edgar Galiz rounded the bases as part of Bellinger’s hit. Mid-Atlantic’s Ryan Aebly scored another in the end of the third. West scored four more times in the fourth inning making the score 13-5. Mark Waguespack navigated his way around the bases to make the score 13-6 at by the end of the fifth inning. Three more home runs for West made the final score 16-6.
