Diablos end tournament tied for 17th
The West Texas Diablos didn't play any more games after suffering a pair
of losses last Thursday in the USSSA's 12 and under AAA Baseball World Series,
but they did move up 10 spots in the final standings, finishing in 17
th place overall.
The Diablos, which featured four Pecos players and seven others from Odessa,
ended up tied with seven other teams with 4-3 records in the tournament's
championship bracket. The Diablos went 3-1 in pool round play in the 84-team
tournament to earn a berth in the championship bracket, then defeated the
Texas Warriors out of Grand Prairie, 10-1 in their first game in double-elimination
play, before dropping an 8-4 decision to the Andrews Mudcats and a 10-5 game
to the Tulsa Padres on Thursday.
Two other Texas teams, the Spring Klein Bombers and El Paso Seminoles,
also ended up tied for 17th after posting 4-3 records. The Cape
County Bandits out of Cape Girardeau, Mo., won the tournament with a perfect
9-0 record, beating the Quad City Hitmen, 10-2, in the championship game.
The Humble Wildcats placed the highest among Texas teams, in a two-way tie
for seventh. Andrews and the East Texas Athletics were next, in a four-way
tie for ninth, while the Texas Warriors and Texas Tribe were part of a four-way
tie for 13th place.
Cody Hernandez, Robert Nunez, John Paul Salcido and Isaiah Rayos were
the Pecos players on the Diablos team.
