Led by an excellent pitching display and a few timely hits, winners bracket representative Ron’s Pizza claimed the Minor League tournament championship with a 6-2 victory over Knox County Career Center at Phillips Park on Monday night.

“Our plan was to wear out their pitcher,” Bowers said. “Of their three starting pitchers, they only had one left to use. We wanted to wear him out and get runs off their slower pitchers.”

Both of Ron’s Pizza’s pitchers went three innings in the victory. Byron Justice went the first three innings, gave up three hits, two walks and struck out eight batters. Nicholas Rickard pitched the last three innings, gave up two hits, two walks and struck out four hitters.

Leading the charge offensively for Ron’s Pizza was Alex Bowers. Bowers went 1-for-3 with an RBI single. For KCCC, Brock Talbott went 3-for-3 with two RBIs.
