Herts Little League Reporter, Tracey Manning, looks back at Saturday's Under-13 clash between the Herts All-Stars and the Bracknell Blazers.
Herts Little League had a day off but our Herts All-star team played down in Bracknell against their team Branknell Brazers.The first game got of to a fantastic start,big hitters in the first innings Nick Martinez and Kieran Manning,a great catch from Michael Davis who was playing right field had the supporters out of their chairs and holding breaths. Jonny Compton-Weight had a ground rule double as the game progressed we saw some big hits from Marty Cullen jr. Nick Martinez on the mound no-one from the Brazers got to first base in the second innings.
Jose Morillo who was never far from the action made some big hits by his game play got home his team members, pitcher Jesse Reinbold made three strike outs in succession in the 4th innings Carlos Casel jr made a nice catch ,Nick Martinez scored a home run and Jesse Reinbold yet again with some excellent pitching stopped the Blazers in their tracks final score 23-0

2nd game Bracknell Brazers batting first saw Zack Longboy on the mound three out with a brilliant catch by Zack, Jose Morillo had a huge hit and played a superb game other big hitters in this game were Jake Caress, Michael Davis and Marty Cullen jr. In the last innings of the day Lewis Green who came on at the end to close the game didn't disappoint and got three strikeouts.
The All-stars played well as a team but then I have to say in my eyes Jose Morillo was man of the day with a ray of triples and some aggressive base running on both games helped his team win 15-4
