2010 16U BCS FINALS CHAMPIONS

Palm Beach PAL


004_(3)


Palm Beach PAL and The South Florida Elite Squad (black) battled in a barn burner Sunday at City of Palms Park for the BCS Championship.  Offensive production was little to speak of as the game was heavily dominated by both pitching staffs.  PAL and Elite's hurlers combined to scatter just eleven hits and three runs throughout the contest.


Left hander Ivan Pelaez (Miami, FL 2012) started the game for the Elite and was nearly untouchable for his six innings of work.  Pelaez allowed just three hits and one run while striking out five.  He did not walk or hit a batter in his outing.  The projectable Pelaez hit 88 MPH on his fastball and was named an honorable mention for most valuable pitcher for the tournament.


Pelaez: 12 IP, 10 H, ER, 12 K


The excellent performance by Pelaez would go to waste as the Elite bullpen proved not to be so elite in relief of the left hander.  The bullpen walked three straight after a lead off pop out, setting the stage for some late inning dramatics at City of Palms Park.


Palm Beach left fielder Danny Young (Lake Worth, FL 2012) followed the three walks with probably the most exciting, and successful strikeouts of his career.  Flame throwing right hander, Nick Travieso (Pembroke Pines, FL 2012) was called upon in relief and came in with the bases loaded to face Young.  Travieso hit 93 MPH on the gun and got credit for a strikeout against Young, but the strikeout came on a wild pitch, which scored the winning run for Palm Beach.

Sam Murphy (LHP, Lake Worth, FL 2012) started the game for Palm Beach and pitched four strong innings.  He allowed just one run on five hits while striking out two and walking one in a quality no decision.

Left hander, Parker Danciu (Delray Beach, FL 2012) pitched the final frame to pick up the win.  He struck out one and was perfect in all other categories.  The lefty hit 88 MPH in his short outing and would later be named the tournament's most valuable pitcher.

Parker Danciu: 4 G, 2 W, 2 (S), 6.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 10 K

Palm Beach's Peter Rivera (Wellington, FL 2012) was given an honorable mention for his outstanding defensive prowess and approach at the plate.

Rivera: 9/25, (3) 2B, 3 HR, 4 R, 8 RBI, 2 SB
