The Mid-State Dawgs (11U) advanced to the Championship game of the USYBA World Series in Knoxville last week before dropping a close 6-5 decision to Impact Baseball to earn 2nd place in the National Division World Series.
After a rough start in pool play, the Dawgs rebounded with a vengence to go 3-1 in the championship round to advance to the Finals. On Thursday, the Dawgs knocked off the Knoxville Dodgers 4-2 before losing to Impact. In action the following day, they pounded the Dodgers 18-0 and recorded an 8-6 victory over Lakeshore Park to set up a rematch against the Impact.
After playing at 12:15 and 2:30, the Dawgs were required to play yet a 3rd game on Friday at 4:45, and fell one run short in the Championship.
