Middle Tennessee Radiology withdraws win from U.S. Bank
Placeholder Image

Middle Tennessee Radiology jumped out to an 11-1 lead Tuesday as the team faced U.S. Bank in round one of the season tournament in the boys 6-8 division of the McMinnville Youth League.
U.S. Bank didn’t have any quit in them however, and the ballgame was pretty close despite the huge deficit U.S. Bank fought back from, but Middle Tennessee prevailed for a 13-11 win.
With its first bat, Mid-TN scored 2 runs as Brently Jones and Ryder Gilispie crossed home to get the party started.
A.J. Whitman answered back in the bottom of the inning with a run for U.S. Bank, making a close ballgame at the start, 2-1.
Middle Tennessee Radiology started dialing up the hits and the runs in the second however, scoring 7 runs before the end of the inning. Wesley Romzek, Jones, Gilispie, Ryan Romzek, Carter Lee, Caiden Armstrong and Colten Link all scored in a rally that looked like it could cement a win for the Radiology team, now 9-1 in their favor.
Adding more of a buffer for Mid TN were Brentley and Ryan Romzek, who tacked on two runs in the top of the third for the 11-1 lead.
U.S. Bank got its groove on in the third, as if to say we’ve had enough of this, and scored 8 runs in the inning. Kyptyn Medley, Jackson Moore, Jacob Rybak, Owen McGee, Grayson Todd, Conner McCormick, Ledger Higgins and Rance Stafford proved if you don’t give up, good things can happen having closed the gap, 11-9.
In the fourth, U.S. Bank knotted the game at 11 after Medley and Rybak added two more to continue the comeback.
It came down to the final inning, with Mid TN at the plate. The radiology team had to look deep inside for the resources to score at least 1 run to win the game. They did just that as Jones – his third of the night – and Ryan Romzek came through in the clutch giving their team 2 runs for the victory.
With the win, Middle Tennessee Radiology will face Moose Lodge on Friday, weather permitting, as Moose Lodge defeated Womack Printing by forfeit Tuesday.
