The Freeport Pretzels may be the best #12 seed you've ever seen. They upset the Third Seed Harlem in their Regional Semifinal on Wednesday.
Today they look to keep the magic alive against the 6 seed Hononegah.
Tied at 2...In the 6....Indians threatening with runners on second and third...Tyler Gilles grounds to second...The runner on third caught in a rundown..Freeport takes advantage...Gets the runner out.
This game would go to extra innings...Bottom 8....Andy Hansche lays down a perfect bunt down the first base line. Freeport can't get the runner out...So after a walk...The bases are loaded for Gilles.
And it's the junior coming up big....the base knock up the middle..Phil Shrider comes across to score the game winner...Indians win the Freeport Regional Championship by the final of 3-2 in 8 innings. They await the winnner of Rock Falls and Sterling. But they are going to have to wait awhile
