Lees, a 6-0 senior from Richmond, VA, topped out at 85 mph but his out pitch was a big, deep curveball around 70 mph that he commanded with precision in working 4 innings.  Ruse, a 6-2 senior from Harford, MD, took more of a power approach to retiring 9 straight hitters, 5 on strikeouts.  Ruse has a deceptive delivery and pounded the strike zone with a 86-89 mph fastball.

6-3, 230 lb first baseman Dennis Mitchell continued his hot hitting with a leadoff triple in the 2nd inning and scored the first Orioles run.  Mitchell has big left handed power and has consistently hit well at WWBA events this year.

Jernigan threw 5 innings, allowing 3 hits and striking out 6 hitters.  The slender, projectable righty pitched at 88-90 mph from a mid 3/4's arm slot and showed good feel for a 11/5 curveball in the mid 70's.  Sidearmer Dylan Dickens finished up for the Dirtbags, topping out at 80 but throwing a nasty frisbee slider with a big sharp break.

SS Mikal Hill continued his outstanding play for the Dirtbags, going 3-4 at the plate and driving in 3 runs.  Hill could be a very strong MVP candidate if he continues his fine play both offensively and defensively and the Dirtbags make a run deep into the playoffs.

C Connor "D.C." Andrus is also having a very strong tournament for the Dirtbags and went 2-3 with an Rbi in addition to handling Jernigan and Dickens well.
