The Westbrook Eagles won the 2013 City championship by defeating the Dairy Queen 10-9 before a large crowd at the little league complex on Sunday evening. One of the most competitive and exciting games of the season featured nine lead changes during the six innings of play. Trailing by a run in the top of the 6th, Michael Young led off the inning with a clutch base hit and with determined base running, scored the tying run. Colby Haynes, who reached on a hard hit ball that was ruled an error, scored what would be the winning run with aggressive base running as well. Dairy Queen, the defending champions, hit the ball well in the bottom of the sixth, but the Eagles made the plays in the field. Winning pitcher, Derek Klement fielded a shot back to the box by Kyle McKone and Colby Haynes tracked down a towering pop fly by Derek Corbett to end the game. Derek Klement pitched a great game for the Eagles when he was inserted into the game in the 2nd inning. Derek would allow six runs on only four hits while striking out six over five innings of work. Starting pitcher, Brandt Herbert pitched well for the Dairy Queen over four innings. Tyler Brackett and Derek Corbett each pitched one good inning as well keeping the game close for DQ and keeping it very exciting for the fans. Offensively, the Eagles were led by Jack Shibles with three hits including two doubles. Cam Morrison and Michael Young were once again repeat hitters for the Eagles. Josh Rowe, who was held to one hit, finished with eleven hits in the playoffs to lead the way for the Eagles. Kyle McKone and Brandt Herbert were repeat hitters for the Dairy Queen while Derek Corbett provided the hardest hit ball of the evening, a long home run in the 3rd inning.
