Williams went 2-for-3 with a home run. … Bloomingdale's Sal Giardina finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs while teammate Sam Morgan added two RBIs on two doubles. … Falcons catcher Juan Fontela was 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. … Middleton's Seth Jorden went 2-for-3 with a triple.

Defensive gems of the day: Crusaders rightfielder Ryan Henry made a sliding catch to rob Leto's Robert Browning of extra bases. … The Falcons' Kevin Vidal exacted payback by robbing Henry of an extra-base hit of his own on a leaping grab on a hard-hit liner to right.

Did you know? The Bulls and Chiefs combined to use 10 pitchers in their 24-run slugfest, with no pitcher lasting more than two innings.

Dugout chatter: "Even though we had no chance of moving on after losing the first two games in the tournament, I was real happy at how our kids competed all game even though it kept going back and forth." — Bloomingdale coach Kris Wilken
