Custom Collision took the right road toward becoming champions Tuesday. In round one of the postseason tournament, the collision crew handed Ben Lomand Connect a 9-3 loss in boys 6-8 action.
Keeping Ben Lomand in check during the first four innings, holding them to no runs, Custom Collison started early in the first when Kaden Jones chalked 1 run on the board. Berkley Black and Miquel Garcia added 2 more runs in the second, followed by Cason Davis, Jones and Jaxson Grissom scoring 3 in the third for a 6-0 lead.
The Ben Lomand boys probably started a little late on the offense, but they battled to get what they could as Isaac Smith scored for Ben Lomand’s first run of the game, 6-1. On their last at-bat, Ben Lomand Connect’s Eastlan Green and Huck Damon made it across home, 6-3, as the phone crew fought for more runners to score but they couldn’t get by the earlier deficit.
With the win, Custom Collision will face the top-seeded Edward Jones team Friday at 5:30 p.m. on Hoover-Millraney Field. Edward Jones had a first-round bye.
