Our son Jared plays for the Raleigh Warriors. We were at the game. They almost came back and won in the 7th inning. They were down 9-3 at the start. Then followed five or six consecutive hits and a walk. The game winning double play was a "line drive" to the first baseman, who caught it and tagged first. So it ended 9-7. It was a heart-breaker for our team. I hope the Stallions do well in the Homeschool World Series!
