Little League

Meadowlawn wins in softball

Published June 17, 2003

ST. PETERSBURG - A bases loaded intentional walk is rare. But during a Little League game?

That happened Monday as Meadowlawn defeated Cross Bayou 21-9 to claim the District 5 major softball title.

With Meadowlawn leading by three and the bases loaded in the top of the third inning, Cross Bayou intentionally walked potent clean-up hitter Miranda Tener to force in a run. But the plan backfired as Michaela DuBois followed with a three-run double to cap a five-run inning.

"I was surprised they walked her because in Little League you don't walk," Meadowlawn coach Tom Carson said. "This is the first time I've seen a team walking another batter like that here."

After a one-hour rain delay, DuBois added an inside-the-park home run and second baseman Stephanie Bonalowicz had two RBIs in the fourth.

Trailing 15-5, Cross Bayou avoided having the 10-run invoked in the bottom of the fourth by scoring three, highlighted by Jessica Fass' two-run double. Linette McLeod added two hits and an RBI for Cross Bayou, which lost to Meadowlawn 18-10 on Friday.

JUNIOR BASEBALL: Northwest's Keith Stanton struck out 14 in a complete game to win the District 5 title by beating Seminole 6-2. Keith's brother and battery mate David Stanton homered.

SENIOR SOFTBALL: The District 5 championship game between Pinellas Park National and Meadowlawn was delayed by rain. Results were not available by press time.
