9-11 Majors District 10 Tournament Recap

Jonah pitched four superb innings and drove in the game’s first run as Fairfax American completed a perfect run through the 9-11 Majors District 10 tournament, beating Chantilly 7-2 at Burke Field on Tuesday night to advance to the state tournament starting July 14 in West Springfield. Fairfax Little League will compete for a 9-11 state title for the second straight year after Fairfax National won last year’s championship. 

Fairfax American relied on two overpowering pitchers as it went 3-0 in the tournament. Jonah pitched a complete-game six-hitter in the opener, a 7-2 win over Fairfax National. Then Bradley threw a masterful three-hit shutout in a 2-0 victory over ANSLL that sent the AL to the championship game. After Jonah left the title game with a 2-1 lead, Bradley made it stand up, allowing one run in two innings of relief. 

In the title game, Chantilly only got to Jonah early. Its leadoff batter singled and later came around to score on an error. But Jonah got two flyball outs to escape a two-on, one-out jam. 

Eventually, Fairfax American got the offense it needed. Bradley singled to lead off the fourth inning and came around to score on Jonah’s base hit up the middle. An RBI groundout by Jameson put Fairfax American ahead. Then the AL squad broke out in the fifth, getting an RBI double from Kyle and a run-scoring single from Logan during the five-run frame. 

Bradley gave up a leadoff double in the sixth but needed only seven pitches from there to end the game on three straight groundouts. 

In Fairfax American’s tournament-opening win over Fairfax National, Brian keyed the offense by going 3-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored. In the tense matchup with ANSLL, Logan and Brian had back-to-back singles with two outs in the third inning, and Giovanni lined a double to right field to drive in the game’s only two runs. 

Fairfax National began its tournament run by pounding Chantilly 16-0. In the loss to Fairfax American, Braedon had the big hit for the NL squad, a two-out, two-run double in the fourth inning that made it 2-1. 

The loss sent Fairfax National into the elimination bracket for a rematch with Chantilly that went to extra innings. The NL squad fell behind 5-0 in the third inning but quickly rallied. Aiden got Fairfax National on the board with an RBI single, Tony followed with a two-run triple and Braedon drove him in with a grounder to make it 5-4. Tony then tied it in the fifth, blasting a home run to center. 

Chantilly went ahead 6-5 in the top of the seventh. In the bottom half, Fairfax National loaded the bases with one out, but its season ended on a strikeout and a fielder’s-choice grounder.
