Hanagan 14s down but not out in Babe Ruth World Series
“We just played the best two teams in our division and we believe we’re still in this,” said Hanagan following Sunday’s 11-7 loss to Pacific Southwest champion Westchester, Calif., in the second round of the 14-year-old Babe Ruth Baseball World Series in Moses Lake, Wash.
The Hanagans are idle Monday and will resume play Tuesday at 8 p.m. against North Washington regional champ Puget Sound, Wash. The four-game pool play round concludes Wednesday at 2 p.m. against Pacific Northwest champion Tualation, Ore.
Hanagan said his team may be without catcher Nate Hall, who injured his left ankle sliding into a base in the fourth inning.
Hanagan starter Matt Reynolds allowed the first six batters to reach safely in the first inning and was down 4-0 before he registered two straight strikeouts. But a three-run homer from No. 9 hitter Dailin Lee pushed Westchester’s lead to 7-0.
Westchester forged ahead 10-5 and Manchester got those two runs back in the home third.
Swanson went the distance, allowing six hits in six innings. He walked three and fanned five.
