Lakeview advances to league finals

POTOMAC PARK — Brooks Carr needed only 11 pitches to strike out the side in the bottom of the seventh inning to secure Lakeview Auto Parts’ 10-8 victory and sweep of Team One Auto Mall in Hot Stove Baseball’s National League Championship Series Wednesday at Holler Field.

Lakeview improved to 23-1 and will open the best-of-three championship series on Monday when it faces Bedford Thomas Chevrolet at the Hot Stove Complex. Lakeview won Game 1 of the NLCS 12-2 on Monday.

Lakeview worked its way to a 10-2 lead after the top of the sixth, but Team One put together a six-run inning to climb right back into contention. Leading by only two runs, Carr entered and made quick work of Team One in the seventh to earn a save.

Carr also shined at the plate, coming through with a triple, a single and two runs batted in. Cather Aaron Rodeheaver hit a triple and three singles with two RBIs and Logan Yommer added two RBIs on two singles.

Justin Peck led Team One with three singles. Corey Horner hit a triple, two singles and drove in a run and Hunter Nazelrod hit a two-run single as part of the big sixth inning.

Horner had eight strikeouts in a complete-game loss.
