Johnstown, PA advance to Pony-13 World Series Championship Game

Johnstown, PA (USA) defeated Redondo Beach, CA (USA) in a close match-up to earn a spot in the Pony-13 World Series Championship Game. Johsntown’s starting pitcher Connor Yoder pitched a complete game and scored Johsntown’s only run in the 1-0 win.

The first run of the game wasn’t scored until the top of the third inning. Connor Yoder made it on base after a fielder’s choice, then an error advanced him to second. Ethan Janidlo followed Yoder up with a single of his own with a flyball to right field. Yoder scored off Janidlo’s single and Johnstown took the 1-0 lead.

Redondo Beach starting pitcher Matthew Verdugo was solid in the four innings he pitched despite giving up the one run. Verdugo allowed three hits while striking out a couple batters. The Redondo offense is what had to get going.

Redondo Beach had the last ups: a chance to win the game with a walk-off or send the game to extra innings. Cameron O’Neil started the inning off with a single for Redondo. A sacrifice bunt and an in-field single put O’Neil, the potential tying runner on third.

There was another sacrifice in the next at-bat, though and O’Neil was tagged out at home plate. The next batter flew out to end the ballgame. Johnstown escaped with the 1-0 win.

Connor Yoder put on a top-notch performance on the mound in the matchup. Yoder went seven full innings and gave up six hits. The most important thing, though is the 0 he left on the scoreboard for Redondo.

Now Johnstown, PA (USA) clashes with Hilo, Hawaii for the 2019 Pony-13 World Series title at 7:30 p.m. PT at York Field in Whittier, California.
