Spartanburg, S.C. – 66 teams faced elimination today as they fight to remain in Spartanburg continued. At the end of Day Four, each competing division was narrowed to eight remaining teams, four of which will enter Day Five undefeated.

FL impact, Glory Adkins, Hotshots Platinum, and St. Louis Chaos earned the four winner’s bracket wins and will advance to Day Five with an undefeated record.

In the 16-Under division, the competition was at an all-time high as 10 of the 29 games resulted in wins by a margin of only two or fewer runs. The IN Shockwaves, TN Mojo, Williamsburg Starz and SC Elite recorded wins in the winner’s bracket, advancing them into Day Five undefeated. After losing their first game of the day, the OK Bombers, Tampa Mustangs, and Glory Adkins bounced back in elimination play, extending their time in Spartanburg to another day. Also surviving to compete tomorrow after four straight wins from the loser’s bracket is Turnin2.

The 18-Under division featured another explosive offensive day as 227 runs were scored in the combined 25 games of the day. Scoring 66 of those runs were FL Impact and Scrapyard Fastpitch who each recorded four wins, extending their time at Tyger River Park to another day. Also advancing from the loser’s bracket is Carolina Elite and Gametime Stars. Winner’s bracket wins came from GA Power, Glory Adkins, TN Fury and Rock Gold who will go into Day Five as the four undefeated teams in the 18-Under division.
