2015 USSSA Major World Series
Game #8 Recap
Compound Athletics/Easton 38
Compound Athletics celebrate another homer
The Illinois/Easton grudge match started with some defense as Precision left fielder Davis Bilardello made a nice sliding catch in the first inning and big Johnathon Williams made a diving stop and throw at third base for Compound Athletics in the bottom of the 2nd. I say grudge match because a number of players on these two teams play league ball together. Compound then exploded for 9 runs in the top of the 3rd inning and led 14-5, Zach Messer with a 2 run homer. In the top of the 4th Lyf Nimmo gave Compound an 18-6 lead with a 3 run homer and Ben Dunn added a 3 run triple to make it 25-6 in the top of the 5th! Precision kept the game going with 7 runs in the bottom of the 5th but Compounds Kyle Pearson who hit 4 homers in the game hit one into the flags in left field. Pearson was joined in hitting homers by Brad Lunda, Johnathon Williams, and Matt Vern and Compound shocked Precision 38-18.
