Dudley and Mancha drive USA closer to playoff spot in Men’s Softball World Championship

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

WHITEHORSE, YK, Canada – Lean and fit Tyler Dudley doesn’t have the big, burly build of the prototypical power hitter, but his incredibly quick hands can whip a bat around with lightning speed.

When Dudley hits a softball, it can go a long way.

And two of his gigantic wallops did just that in leading Team USA to a 12-2 victory over the Dominican Republic in the Men’s Softball World Championship at the Pepsi Softball Centre in Whitehorse, Tuesday.

With the USA trailing 1-0 in the bottom half of the first inning, Dudley came to the plate with the bases loaded and promptly drilled a triple down the left-field line to clear the sacks and give Team USA a 3-1 advantage.

WHITEHORSE, YK, Canada – Duane Weiler fired a shutout, Jeff Nowaczk blasted a grand slam, and the defense was once again superb as the United States beat India, 11-0, in four innings under the mercy rule, at the Whitehorse Pepsi Softball Centre, Monday.

The win evens Team USA’s record at 2-2 in Pool A of the Men’s Softball World Championship and keeps the team in the hunt for a medal-round playoff spot.

Weiler was in command the entire way, allowing one hit and a walk, along with eight strikeouts to notch his first win in the tournament.

The USA scored four runs in the first inning, highlighted by Tyler Dudley’s two-run homer over the centerfield fence. Back-to-back singles in the second by Pat Sagdal and Marcus Tan added another run, and a six-run barrage in the third put the game safely in the win column.

Catcher Jeff Nowaczyk provided the fireworks in the sixth with his bases-loaded home run, and Ochoa’s double plated the final two runs in Team USA’s 10-hit attack.

The United States (1-2) returns to action Tuesday against the Dominican Republic which currently sports a 3-0 record, tied with Canada for the top spot in Pool A.

The game is scheduled at 5 p.m. (PT) and can be watched live on Sports Canada TV
