So from the time Brandon Miller hit a laser shot over the fence in right in the first Keystone Little League at-bat of the game Monday night to support the elimination of Lafayette, Louisiana, Lamade Stadium crowd roared huge Clinton County All-Star who never stops.
After scoring three runs in total from their first two matches, Keystone Little League scored 10 runs in his first two at-bats, while Landon Breon and Miller along with a no-hitter as advanced with a 10-0 Keystone of four tickets to win.
“They were definitely hitting the ball. You could see today in the cage,” said manager Bill Garbrick Keystone. “They were seeing the ball well and hitting the ball well. We have been followed in the game.”
Keystone Little League now face Warner Robins, Georgia, a 5-4 winner over La Grange, Kentucky, at 8 pm round.
Lafayette is removed from the Little League World Series.
“Our main objective was to reach and hit the ball, no matter how successful. Simply did not. Children believe that, as in Waco, to get here, we got everybody,” Lafayette head Leland Padgett said. “We have come here and freezing has on us. We came from Waco, where it was 107. I do not know the answer. I do not know what happened (in our bats). It’s beyond me.”
Louisiana Breon was then removed at the top of the first; Miller hit a 2-1 pitch over the fence in right field and turned to a raucous crowd in a mass of 28,367 noisy fans. Keystone Little League has drawn 103,430 people during its three games so far at Lamade Stadium.
“That was very strong. It was great,” said Miller. “Everyone supporting the whole team motivated us.”
Garbrick Alex followed with a walk and Talon Falls, was beaten by a pitch. Both riders went on a wild pitch for a strikeout. After the second out of the inning, Wyatt Koch hit a double to left to plate two runs and give Keystone a 3-0 lead.
That was just an ad, however, to the bottom of the second trapezoidal when they scored seven runs to put the game out of reach. Tyler walked and Mike McCloskey Keibler double to start the inning. After Miller arrived to load the bases, Alex Garbrick a two-run single a 5-0 lead.
A trip to Niagara loaded the bases again before Breon cleared the bases with a double to give his team an 8-0 lead.
“It was a curve (hit) and games in recent years have not been doing well in the plate,” said Breon. “He came out of a curve over the plate and hit me.”
Reeder added option of a gardener and McCloskey RBI capped the scoring with an RBI single to make it 10-0.
The only drama left was whether or not Breon was to complete the first no-hitter of the 2011 World Series.
“I knew nothing of non-hitter to the last entrance right before leaving the field. Tyler told me in the dugout.’s when I learned,” said Breon.
He got a popout for the first out of the room, but after a walk put him on 50 pitches, Bill Garbrick came to remove the game. If Breon had stayed, there would have been able to pitch until Saturday at the earliest. Breon is now available to pitch again Thursday.
“I tried to explain to (Landon) as they were doing what we were doing. In such a situation is a difficult decision to take the guy with a no-hitter,” said Bill Garbrick. “Think what we can expect that Landon explained; He took it well.”
Miller came in and retired the final two batters on a fielder’s choice and floating to end the inning no-hitter four.
