The Grenada Rec All Stars’ summer came to a close Wednesday, but not before finishing third overall at the Dizzy Dean World Series in Southaven.
After starting the tournament with an opening win, the all-stars took a 5-4 loss Monday against Corner, Ala. Tyrekis Johnson was the losing pitcher in that matchup after only going an inning and a third. Corner jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Grenada tied the game. Extra base hits by Jayvon Herron, Thomas Ware and Jekerrious Williams gave Grenada life.
Corner rallied in the bottom of the fourth before claiming the win.
Grenada defeated Olive Branch in their first game of the losers bracket 17-4. Dru Barnes earned the victory in that matchup and the all-stars put on a hitting display in which all of Grenada had multiple hits.
“Getting in the loser’s bracket actually made us a little stronger in the tournament,” said Reggie Ross, one of three coaches on the team. “The boys knew that one more loss then the next thing they’d face was the first day of school.”
