12U All-Stars lose 8-0 in state title game


That would end up being enough for the visitors.

Lebanon managed six singles in the game — two by Kaitlyn Blevins and one each by Payton Ray, Katie McDuffie, Payge Redman and Payten Redman — but could only get one runner past second base.

“We just didn’t go up there being aggressive at the plate,” coach Redman said. “Their pitcher was a good pitcher and she was throwing strikes, but she wasn’t throwing any heat that we hadn’t seen before. We just got up there and didn’t.”

Needing to keep the score where it was at, Lebanon brought Payten Redman in to pitch and she struck out five of the six batters she faced in the second and third innings to keep the score 3-0. Lebanon had a chance to cut into the lead in the bottom of the third, when Ray and McDuffie hit back-to-back one-out singles, but a fielders choice and a strikeout ended the threat.

Neither team did much in the fourth, but Riverfield pulled away in the fourth. Lebanon allowed two walks, three hits and a hit batter and Riverfield scored four runs to go up 7-0.

The visitors added another insurance run in the sixth to go up 8-0.

Lebanon tried to put up one final rally in the bottom of the sixth. Payge Redman reached on an error and advanced to second on a sacrifice by Brooke Dodson.

Payten Redman then laced a single to right field, by Payge was thrown out at home for the second out. Payten then tried to reach third but the Riverfield catcher made a heads-up play and threw her out to end the game.

Lebanon will return a decent number players next year, but it will be the last Little League state tournament for a number of Lebanon players — including the two Redmans, Blevins and McDuffie.
