The Marianna Dixie Majors All-Star team took Bristol by storm last week, knocking off six opponents one-by-one. They dominated on the mound, in the field and at the plate.
Cameron Odom and Brady Brock tag-teamed for a no-hitter against the Chipley Majors All-Stars. Isaiah Spencer struck out every batter he faced over five innings of work in another game.
The pitching staff as a whole combined for 68 strikeouts spread over six games. They allowed only nine hits in the tournament.
Trent DeFelix was the Jeff Mathis of little league, catching every inning of the six games, through record heat.
The final game was a 13-2 win over Liberty County and took only four innings to pick up the win and claim the State Championship. Cameron Odom got the starting nod on the mound, recorded nine strikeouts, one hit, and one walk. Caleb Thomas closed out the game for Marianna. Marianna plated seven runs in the first inning on hits by Caleb Thomas, Isaiah Spencer, Jacobi Hall, Trent DeFelix, and Jake Harris attributed to the runs with walks to Brady Brock, Coleman Reagan, Sergio Wamble and Cameron Odom. Aaron Johnson stood tough when he was hit by a pitch.
Four more runs crossed the plate in the bottom of the second inning with Corey Williams and Aaron Johnson taking one for the team, while Brady Brock and Jacobi Hall were issued walks. Trent DeFelix and Parker Willis had a hit each in the second inning.
The third inning saw Marianna add two more runs to their total to make it a 13-0 game. Cameron Odom, Trent DeFelix and Caleb Thomas all recorded hits in the third.
Marianna will travel to Lumberton, North Carolina to compete in the Dixie Youth Majors World Series in August.
