Last updated on Saturday, August 17, 2013

(TAYLOR, MI) - The Bedford Junior League All Stars couldn’t hold onto a 3 run lead as the team representing the Europe/Africa Region rallied for 5 runs in the top of the 7th to win 9-8.

Bedford struck first in the bottom of the 2nd with 3 runs powered by an Austin Long 2 run double. The Czech Republic countered right back with 4 runs in the top of the 3rd inning.

The Bedford All Stars would bounce back and score runs in both the 5th and 6th inning to take a 7-4 heading into the final inning.

However a couple of misplayed balls in the top of the 7th opened the flood gates and the Czech Republic crossed the plate 5 times to take a 9-7 lead.

Bedford would plate one run in the bottom of the 7th but stranded the tying run at 2nd and fell to the Czech Republic by a final of 9-8.

Bedford finished their week at the World Series with a record of 2-3. All three losses were by just one run.
