Monarchs pitching really came through. Feigl started with 6in of no hit ball and 14ks in the first game and Brooks Miller closed. Bronakoski pitched 6in in the 2nd game, struggling in the 1st a lil, but settled down well giving up only 2 earned runs with 7ks, and Ryan Nichols closed. Third game was the only game the pitching really struggled as 7 walks led to 6 runs. Final pool play game Haslup pitched very well against 96ers Blue team that made it to the championship-well enough to win but team didnt come through. Touched 88mph a handful of times. First elimination game Aumann threw very well and did an excellent job of mixing up pitches. Second elimination game was against a very tough New York Nine team that had around 10 current college players on its roster. Miller started and threw 3in and gave way to Bronakoski who after giving up the tying run in his first inning, held the other team scoreless through the rest of his 4 in of relief. Only gave up 2 groundball basehits and a bunt base hit while throwing consistently upper 80's with alot of 88's and 89's on one day rest. Feigl came in and was pretty dominant during his 6 out save throwing a consistent 88-92. Championship game was pitching by comittee with tired arms, and Haslup started going 2, followed by Nichols who went 4, Aumann who went 1 2/3, and Feigl who closed again with a 4 out save. Feigl touched as high as 94 in his outing. Supposedly the gun at the stadium was around 2mph slow, meaning he may have hit as high as 96, and that the Monarchs may have had 3 pitchers throw 90+ in the tournament. Job well done! Hitters came through with countless clutch hits throughout. Very exciting week
