Halfway's one just enough

August 01, 1999

ARBUTUS, Md. - Halfway Little League got the only run of the game in its first at-bat, then closed the game with a most unlikely double play to beat Frederick National 1-0 on Saturday afternoon in the first round of the Maryland 11-12-year-old Little League Tournament.

In the first, Jordan DuVall led off with a single, and two walks loaded the bases with no outs. After a strikeout, Ronnie May was hit by a pitch to drive in the run.

Nick Adenhart took over from there, striking out 14 and walking only one in a one-hitter.

But the one hit came to start the sixth, and Adenhart's attempt to get the batter at first went out of play to put a runner on second. He moved to third on a wild pitch before an Adenhart strikeout.

Then on a bunt back to the mound, Adenhart looked the runner back to third before throwing to first to get the out. The runner broke for home, but David Warrenfeltz blocked the plate and tagged him out to end the game.

"It was like, 'Oh no,'" Halfway manager Les Martin said. And then Nick got that bunt and boom, boom, boom. It was over."

Halfway advances to a winner's bracket game at 4 today against Denton.
