DES MOINES – The Bronx from Saskatchewan Canada rallied for three runs in the seventh to pull out a 6-5 win over Santa Rosa (Calf.) Fastpich, Saturday night, in the NAFA A-Major World Series.

The Bronx will take on Kelso Fastpitch tonight to decide who advances into the championship game undefeated. Kelso defeated Omaha Primetime Fastpitch 5-1.

Meanwhile, Santa Rosa drops into the losers bracket and must win three games to get back to the title game on Sunday, scheduled for 11:30 a.m.

Santa Rosa closed within a run in the bottom of the seventh on Brian Macler’s two-run homer, but Bronx pitcher Jeremy Kenny got a ground out and a strike out to end the game and send the Bronx into the winners brackt final scheduled for 7:40 p.m. (Games are behind so it will be a late night at the ball park.)
