Johnstown takes down the back-to-back Pony-13 World Series champions

Johnstown, PA (USA) defeated the back-to-back Pony-13 Champion Seoul (Korea) in the second round of the Pony-13 World Series Saturday at York Field in Whittier, California. Easton Semelsberger led the way for Johnstown, going 4-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in the 8-2 win over Seoul.

Pace Prosser and Easton Semelsberger each snagged a sinle to get things going for Johnstown in the top of the first. Two batters later, E Janidlo came in and hit a hard groundball deep enough to center field to bring in Prosser and Semelsberger.

Janidlo’s RBI single gave Johnstown the early 2-0 lead, but they weren’t done extending the lead just yet. They got back to scoring in the third inning.

Semelsberger doubled to lead off the third. C Yoder brought him home in the next at-bat with a triple that was crushed to left field. Yoder was later brought home on a groundout by Janidlo and Johnstown found themselves ahead 4-0.

Seoul did they’re part to stay in the game. M Gyun scored off a ground out in the bottom of the fourth to give Seoul their first run of the game.

Seoul continued to chip away at the lead in the fifth. P Min brought in P Seong with a single to left field, but Seoul could have done much more damage. Seoul had runners on first and second with no outs.

The next batter two batters bunted into outs, though, and the batter following that struck out. Seoul left two men on and exited the fifth inning down 5-2.

Johnstown went out to score an insurance run in the fifth inning off of a balk call, then added a couple more in the seventh off a M Pfeil line drive single to right field. Pfeil’s RBIs extended the Johnstown lead to 8-2, where it remained for the rest of the ballgame.

Easton Semelsberger had an outstanding ballgame, going 4-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Mason Pfeil also had a strong outing. Pfeil went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and one run scored.

Connor Binaut put on a standout performance on the mound for Johnstown. Binaut went six full innings against the back-to-back Pony-13 World Series Champions and only gave up three hits for two runs.

Next up for Johnstown, PA (USA) will be the winner of the Seoul (Korea) and Redondo Beach, CA (USA) game. Johnstown next match will be Sunday at 4 p.m. PT.
