National League (5th/6th Grade Baseball)

Playoffs 2018
2018 Yarnell Diamondbacks

Congratulations!

Congrats to the Yarnell Diamondbacks for their championship season!  Yarnell defeated the Yuma Dbacks 10-8 in 6 innings to cap off their #1 regular season record.  

It was a tough game back and forth between Yarnell and Yuma. Picking up in the top of the 6th inning the score was 10-8, and Yarnell was deep into their bullpen at that point with Yuma in a do or die situation.  First batter struck out, next batter walked, then the 3rd batter of the inning grounds out to the 3rd baseman, Carter Deckwa.  The 4th batter of the inning walks, so with 2 outs and 2 runners on with a 2-1 count, a hard grounder is hit to Carter Deckwa at third base again.  The ball was bobbled momentarily, but then secured and fired to 1st for the out. 

Congrats to Coaches Matt Deckwa and Anthoney Short on a championship season, and to Coach Shawn Vandyke and Aaron Cook for a tremendous run at the title.
