Las Vegas holds on in high-scoring affair to eliminate Brooklawn, N.J. The Star Online

Brooklawn (45-6) again showed its resolve by loading the bases with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. And it was inches away from more runs before Las Vegas centerfielder John Sewald’s diving grab of Joe Brooks’ liner wrapped up the victory.

“If he misses it, it’s probably three runs and the tying run on third base,” Day said. “So that was a huge catch.”

Erik VanMeetren’s big hit gave him a game-high four hits and four RBI for a 15-hit Las Vegas offense. T.J. White, A.J. VanMeetren, Michael Blasko and Trey Hoppel added two hits apiece.

Steve Wilgus and John Brue had four hits each to lead Brooklawn’s 15-hit offense. Pat Kane and Brooks added two hits apiece. Trailing 11-2 after 5 1/2 innings, Brooklawn inched closer with three in the sixth, four in the seventh and one in the eighth.

Roper went four innings for Las Vegas, striking out two and yielding four hits and two runs. Hoppel got the win in relief but got touched up for eight runs (six earned) and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings. Adam Wozniak (1/3 inning) and White (1 1/3) closed out the game for Las Vegas.
