Oceanside, NY – The Rebels improved to a perfect 3-0 Saturday in the seeding round of the Oceanside Tournament with a lop-sided win over the HBQVB Orioles, 17-3. It was their second run-rule shortened game in a row.

After falling behind 1-0 in the middle of the first inning, the Rebels bats came alive with their most productive outburst to date. The hit parade included doubles by Matt 7, Kevin 38, Kevin 5, Tyler 1, Billy 20, and Nick 2, and a triple by Matt 11. Also tallied in hit column were Alec 14, and Eric 4 who later stole home.

As we’ve come to expect, the Rebels featured strong pitching, solid defense and their hallmark smart, aggressive baserunning — Jack 8 provided a great example of this when, maintaining his secondary lead off of second base, the HBQVB catcher slightly overthrew his pitcher and Jack, without hesitation, advanced to third.

The Oceanside Tournament continues this Thursday night at 8:00pm at Wright’s Field.

The Rebels return to North Bellmore tomorrow night for game two of the South Shore Tournament.
