Big Hitting Performance Carries USA Glory Past JPRD to win the Babe Ruth Softball 14U World Series

BB GloryA superb effort by Shae Ebert led USA Glory (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) to a 12-10 win in seven innings over JPRD West (Jefferson Parish, Louisiana) in the championship game of the 2016 Babe Ruth Softball 14U World Series.

Ebert rocked JPRD West with two home runs.  Ebert went 3-4 in the game with five RBIs and three runs scored.  Ebert homered in the fourth and sixth innings.

USA Glory was in a difficult situation in the fifth inning before it recovered for the win.  Janyrie Ganaway racked up five RBIs on one hit for USA Glory.  She homered in the second inning.

Both squads had things going at the plate, tallying 22 runs and 27 hits, including seven extra base hits.

USA Glory hit three home runs in the win.  Home runs for USA Glory came when Ganaway homered in the second inning and Ebert homered in the fourth and sixth innings.

The top of the second saw USA Glory take an early lead, 2-0.  USA Glory’s offense woke up as Ada Brown singled before Ganaway homered, plating Brown.

USA Glory brought home one run in the fourth inning and matched that run total in the fifth.  In the fourth, USA Glory scored on a solo home run by Ebert.

It didn’t take long for JPRD West to respond as they scored two runs of its own in the fifth.  JPRD West scored on a two-run home run by Sofia Conaway.

The game was never in doubt after the seventh, as USA Glory scored five runs on a three-run error, a groundout by Mahala Battiest, and an RBI single by Ebert.

Berkshire Force 16U Girls Win Babe Ruth Softball World Series Championship

 The Berkshire Force (Massachusetts) 16U softball team started the Babe Ruth World Series with a pair of losses in pool play. Berkshire Force

They finished with five straight wins, culminating in a 5-1 decision over WVAC-Debary (Florida) for the Babe Ruth World Series Championship.

After their winner’s bracket final game against Jensen Beach was postponed for one day, the Force won 6-4 to advance to the championship.

Then after waiting out the day and finally starting their championship game, the Force found themselves down 1-0 after a half inning.

No matter.

In the bottom of the first, Toni Satrape hit a bunt single that plated Britney Perkett to tie the game.  Then, in the third, the Force took the lead for good with a four-run inning.

In the frame, Perkett led off with a bunt single – the second of three on the day – and scored two batters later on a ground out from Hayley Tobin.  Ashley Keegan came up next and hit a double that scored Elena Cerveira, Satrape followed that with a single and, after an error by Debary, Cerveira came around to make it 4-1.

That chased DeBary starter Kendall Walsh from the game.  Marissa Adame came on in relief, but Erin Murphy welcomed her to the game with a hard-hit single through short that scored Satrape and made it 5-1.

From there, Keegan was nearly untouchable.

The Taconic pitcher faced just three batters in the fourth, four in the fifth, and three in the sixth.  In the seventh, Debary got two runners on with one out, but Keegan slammed the door shut with two straight ground outs to end it.

Keegan had an efficient day, striking out three on five hits and one unearned run.  She also went 1 for 3 at the plate with a run batted in.

Murphy went 1 for 3 with the run batted in.  Perkett went 3 for 3 with two runs scored, and Satrape finished 2 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI.
