North Bellmore, NY – The Rebels opened the South Shore Tournament with a convincing run-rule victory over the Manhasset Indians, 13-1.

Starting pitcher Kevin 5 had a little trouble finding a tight strike-zone in the first as Manhasset grabbed an early 1-0 lead. But he quickly settled in and, combined with Alec 14 closing out the last 2 innings, did not allow another run.

The Rebels offense, aided by too many bases-on-balls offered by Manhasset pitching, scored in 4 of the 5 innings played. This, combined with some clutch hits including singles by Billy 20, Tyler 1, Kevin 5 and a well-struck double by Alec 14 burning the opposing center fielder, helped the Rebels build a big lead from which they never looked back.

Oceanside Tournament play continues noon today at Wright’s Field and the South Shore Tournament picks up again Monday night at 6:00.
