Pine Island Little League Major’s Division All-Stars’ season concludes
The Greater Pine Island Little League Major’s Division All-Stars ended their season recently.
The All-Stars took on the Gulf Coast Lightning travel team in game one of their doubleheader and took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Davis Wold drew a one-out walk, Mason Wells followed with a walk and Wold was driven home on a Dalton Dooley single.
That would be the only run of the game for the All-Stars, as the Lightning pitching shut down the Stars offense the rest of the game.
The Lightning got three first inning runs off Dalton, the Pine Island All-Stars starting pitcher. The big hit was a two RBI double by Al Moreno. The Lightning added four more runs in the second inning off Dooley, for a 7-1 lead. John Marino had a two RBI double for the Lightning.

Harre walked a batter and hit another, giving up a first inning run to Fort Myers. The Fort Myers All-Stars added two more runs in the second inning on a big two-out single by Tim Butts, giving Fort Myers a 3-0 lead.
The Pine Island All-Stars did not quit, fighting back and scoring two runs in the third inning to trail by only a 3-2 score. Huerta had a big hit in the inning for Pine Island.
