The Lewes/Rehoboth Major League All-Stars made it two comebacks in a row July 16, with a 3-2 win over Lower Sussex, as the cardiac kids scored a run in the sixth inning to force a winner-take-all District 3 championship game Wednesday, July 17, at the Woodbridge Little League complex.
Down 2-0 going into the fifth inning, Miles Godwin slammed a two-run homer to tie the game at two. It was the only hit given up by Lower Sussex pitcher Trey Hill, who had 10 strikeouts on the night. It was Godwin’s second home run of the District 3 tournament.
”I told Miles to just go up there and relax and have fun,” said Lewes/Rehoboth manager Matt Brittingham. “He did and knocked a line drive out of the park.”
Godwin started on the mound for Lewes/Rehoboth. He threw 20 pitches and struck out two Lower Sussex batters.
Brady Kosc came in from the bullpen and finished the game, pitching 4 2/3 innings, allowing one hit and striking out three.
Neither Lewes/Rehoboth pitcher allowed a walk, and Lower Sussex could only muster five base runners.
Lewes/Rehoboth had just two hits on the night with Godwin’s homer and Trent Kauffman’s sixth-inning hit to score Chase Resnick, who had walked.
“They are playing for each other right now,” said Brittingham. “We’re playing as underdogs, and we are hungry. They want to win for the team.”
