6-4-3 Double Play received some of the best pitching seen in recent WWBA history to win two playoff games today and become the first team to claim a place in the semi-finals.
In the round of 16, 6-4-3 got a combined 1-hitter from RHP Luke Crumley (2011, White County HS, GA) and RHP Andrew Smith (2010, Roswell HS, GA) to defeat the San Diego Show 1-0. Crumley pitched the first 5 2/3 innings, allowing the sole hit, before giving way to Smith, who struck out 4 of the last 5 hitters. 6-4-3 scored their run without the benefit of a hit in the third inning, as Show RHP Ryan Wilkins threw a 2-hitter of his own.
In the Quarterfinals.RHP Lucas Hart (2010, North Cobb HS, GA) spun a masterpiece, throwing a complete game 7 inning no-hitter against Treasure Coast Young Guns in a 7-0 win. Hart was very efficient in locating 3 solid pitches for strikes, a 85-88 mph fastball, a 72 mph CB and an 80 mph change up, with the change up being especially effective. CF Grant Newsome (2010, Alpharetta HS, GA) went 3-4 to lead the Double Play offense.
6-4-3 Double Play will face off against the winner of the East Cobb Braves/Chet Lemon's Juice game in the semifinals.
