Cartersville Little League 11U notches second state tourney win


The Cartersville Little League 11U baseball all-star team improved to 2-0 in the Georgia Little League State Tournament Sunday with a 7-5 victory over Warner Robins American Little League. The Cartersville Little League 10U baseball all-star team and the Bartow County Senior Little League baseball team (16U) will return to state tournament action Monday.

The Cartersville Little League 11U baseball all-stars broke open a 4-4 game with three runs in the bottom of the fifth Sunday afternoon and held off Warner Robins American 11U, 7-5, in the second round of the Georgia Little League 11U State Tournament at Rudy York Field in Atco.


Cartersville scored four runs in the bottom of the second inning to take a 4-1 advantage, but Warner Robins American scored a run in the third and two more in the fourth inning to knot the score at 4-4.


A three-run fifth for the locals gave them a 7-4 lead and Warner Robins American managed only a single run in the top of the sixth for a 7-5 final score.


Warner Robins out hit Cartersville eight to five, but a trio of Cartersville pitchers closed out innings when needed.


Brodie McWhorter (3.2 IP, 4ER, 5H, 4BB, 2K) was the Cartersville starting pitcher. Maddox Frazier (2 IP, 1ER, 3H, 2BB, 2K) picked up the pitching win in middle relief, and Julian Cline (0.1 IP, 0R, 1BB) took the mound with two outs in the sixth to retire the game’s final out.


Logan Woody walked to get Cartersville’s fourth inning started. Cameron Cochran doubled and Thomas Peters tied the game 1-1 with an infield single. Cam Williams forced home another run when he reached on an infield error. Special runner Andrew Lutjens and Williams both added runs on wild pitches.


In Cartersville’s three-run fifth, Lutjens was hit by a pitch, Logan Shrewsbury singled, and Casen Cochran singled to load the bases. McWhorter forced in the go-ahead run with a bases loaded walk and Woody was hit by a pitch to give Cartersville a 6-4 lead. After a pitching change, Casen Cochran scored on a wild pitch and the locals had a 7-4 advantage.


Warner Robins coaxed three walks and had a single in the top of the sixth, but Cline got an infield pop out with the bases loaded to end the threat.


The loss sends Warner Robins American to an elimination game in the double-elimination tournament Monday night at 6 p.m. against Peachtree City American.


Cartersville (2-0) advances to a third round game Tuesday night at 6 p.m. against Northern-Columbus (1-0).
