DELPHOS — The Delpha Chevy Reds captured the Tri-County Little League tournament title last Friday night.
The Delphos Reds will try to do the same Thursday in the Delphos Minor League tournament after knocking off regular-season champion Cubs 7-3 Tuesday night at Stadium Park’s Little League diamond.
They will oppose the Tigers at 6 p.m. The Tigers (12-4), the regular-season runners-up to the Cubs, run-ruled the Pirates (9-7) 13-2 in five innings at the same time on Diamond 4.
The Reds (10-6) took advantage of 14 bases-on-balls issued by four Cubs (13-3) hurlers. Ashton Moore walked three times and Lincoln “Abraham” Mueller, Justin Mox, Seth Brinkman and Nate Buettner each walked twice.
The Reds also got a strong pitching performance from starter Zach Grone (3 innings, 3 hits, 3 earned runs, 2 BBs, 6 strikeouts) and reliever Isaac Fairchild (3 IPs, 1 BB, 3 Ks).
