2022 U-18 Baseball World Cup Daily Review:

U-18 Baseball World Cup Friday Thoughts:

Team USA fell behind early against the Netherlands, as starting pitcher RHP Blake Dickerson allowed a home run in each of the first two innings, leaving the Americans trailing 3-0 after the top of the second. However, Dickerson settled in and Team USA went on to win its opening game of the tournament with nine unanswered runs.

Dickerson’s ultimate line was 4.1 innings, three hits, three runs, six strikeouts, and two walks on 70 pitches.

RHP Cameron Tilly and LHP Alexander Clemmey combined for 2.2 scoreless innings of relief, with Tilly tossing 1.2 innings and striking out one batter while allowing just one base runner and Clemmey walking the first batter he faced but striking out the next two and inducing a groundout to end the game. Tilly was declared the winner.

Aidan Miller led the Americans in hitting, going 2-for-2 with a triple, a walk, and a hit by pitch. He didn’t strike out once during the game and scored three runs, the most on the club, while hitting sixth in the lineup.

3B Colt Emerson had a good day at the plate as well, going 2-for-3 with a double, a single, a walk, and a run scored.

1B Bryce Eldridge’s fifth-inning grand slam broke a 3-3 deadlock and gave Team USA an advantage they would not relinquish.

Team USA totaled eight hits, six of which were extra-base hits, while walking twice as many times as they struck out (4) and playing a clean defensive game with no mistakes.

U-18 Baseball World Cup Saturday Thoughts:

2B Kevin McGonigle and C Blake Mitchell both hit home runs in Team USA’s second game of the tournament, which the Americans won 8-3.

McGonigle’s 400-foot home run in the opening inning had a 103-mph exit velocity, while Mitchell’s third-inning opposite-field home run broke a 2-2 tie and gave Team USA a lead it would never relinquish.

Christian Rodriguez, the starting pitcher, pitched 3.2 innings, allowing just one hit and one earned run while striking out five batters and walking four. LHP Cameron Johnson, RHP Cameron Tilly, RHP, LHP Adam Hachman, and RHP Bryce Eldridge worked in relief.

LF Aidan Miller extended his on-base streak and has yet to record an out through the first two games of the event—he went 1-for-1 with a pair of walks in this game. CF/RF No. 1 and 2 batters 2B and Max Clark The Americans were led by Kevin McGonigle, who had two hits.

U-18 Baseball World Cup Sunday Thoughts:

The game between the United States and South Africa was called off in the third inning due to bad weather in Bradenton, Florida.

Team USA jumped off to a big lead in the three frames, leading 10-0 going into the break, with both C Gavin Grahovac and RF Aidan Miller homering.

Miller maintained his hot start to the tournament, going 2-for-2 with a triple and a home run, and has yet to record an out.

RHP Stone Russell started for Team USA and threw two no-hit, shutout innings with one strikeout before the game was called off.

The exact date and hour of the continuation will be disclosed later.

U-18 Baseball World Cup Monday Thoughts:

Team USA defeated Canada in a back-and-forth battle Monday evening, improving to 3-0 in the competition.

Team Canada pounced on USA starting LHP Matthew Dallas, who allowed six hits, four earned runs, two walks, and two strikeouts in 2.2 innings. After taking a 4-1 lead after three innings, Team USA added another run in the bottom of the fourth, gave up one in the fifth, and reclaimed the lead in the bottom of the fifth.

CF/RF Max Clark tied the game at 5-5 with a two-run home ball to right field, and Kevin McGonigle followed with an RBI triple down the right field line to take the lead, and later scored on a wild pitch to give Team USA a 7-5 lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Things got interesting in the top of the seventh inning, when starting catcher Blake Mitchell took to the mound as a righthander and walked the bases loaded with no outs. Mitchell stayed in the game, and despite being scattered and struggling throughout the inning, he struck out the side after walking in one run to make the score 7-6.

Team USA was led by McGonigle and Clark, who both had two hits. Leadoff hitter DH/LF RJ Hamilton went 1-for-3 with a single, walk, and two stolen bases, and No. 7 hitter 1B Bryce Eldridge went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and two runs scored.

U-18 Baseball World Cup Tuesday Thoughts:

The United States defeated Brazil 10-0 in six innings just one day after defeating Canada in the first round.

It was a thoroughly dominant game that helped the Americans win the top spot in Thursday’s Super Round.

LHP Jake Brown started for Team USA and pitched four no-hit, shutout innings on 50 pitches, striking out seven hitters and walked none. LHP Adam Hachman tossed two scoreless innings out of the bullpen to continue shutting down the Brazilian offense—Hachman allowed one hit and one walk while striking out six batters.

Aidan Miller, the tournament’s leading hitter, went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk, and three runs scored from the No. 3 hole.
