Final Round

Championship Final

Lakewood 8, Millikan 7
Aljay Davis scored the winning run on a bases-loaded walk to Chris Cordova that capped a six-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning for No. 8 Lakewood (22-6). Michael Carp led off the bottom of the seventh inning with his seventh home run of the year to pull the Lancers within 7-3 and Mike Harris hit a two-run homer to tie the game with one out. Carp went four for four with three RBIs, Davis was three for three and Harris added three hits and three RBIs for Lakewood. Josh Williams (8-2) relieved starter Justin Wheeler in the sixth inning and allowed two hits with two strikeouts in the final two innings to earn the victory. The teams split a pair of Moore League games this season, with Lakewood winning 6-0 on March 26 and Millikan winning 1-0 April 28. Center fielder Steve Fraser went four for four with two doubles and two RBIs for Millikan (16-11), which benefited from two fielding errors to score four runs in the fifth inning and increase its lead to 6-1. Fraser singled to score Chase Raymond with one out in the top of the sixth inning to give the Rams a 7-2 lead. Danny Lyben tripled and scored on a single by Carp to give Lakewood a 1-0 first-inning lead.
