( NC-Brooklawn Legion was knocked down to the losers bracket  by Midland, Michigan and will now have to win every game or be eliminated from the World Series. 


Brooklawn committed some costly errors in tonight's game, which started 3 hours late because of rain.  


An error in the third inning allowed Michigan to jump out to a one run lead. The error happened on a popup that dropped between Brooklawn’s pitcher, the catcher, and the first baseman. 


But the Brookers came back in the top of the 5th scoring 4 runs.  Michigan got one in the sixth.  In the seventh an error by Brooklawn with two outs allowed Michigan to get two more. Michigan got a rally going in the 8th scoring 4 runs. The final score Midland 8 Brooklawn 4.


The Brookers short stop Robbie Alessandrine made a beautiful play in the 4th inning. A hard hit ball came flying at Allessandrine who jumped in the air to catch it, and then while he was still in the air threw out the  Michigan runner at first. Allessandrine also made a nice play to get the last out of that inning.


Brooklawn will play Sunday. Time and opponent to be announced.
