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.
