Cross Hit Red was clutch in close games; two of its four wins were decided by a single run. It also posted a 5-2 victory over the CAAK Wildcats and walloped the Phoenix Cardinal 15s by a 14-0 margin.
Five teams posted 3-1 records: Cross Hit Black 16U, MJ Sting Baseball Club, HITS Elite, CAAK Wildcats 18s and the Mid South Prospects. Old Hickory Generals and the TN Express both compiled 2-1 marks.
