Xplosion capture Babe Ruth championship


One explosive inning at the plate, and a serving of efficient pitching from Dean Melinda, guided the Tennessee Xplosion to the Horace Mann Insurance Elizabethton National Babe Ruth tournament championship.
Melinda hurled a four-hitter, and the Xplosion cut loose for seven runs in the fifth inning, in a 8-2 victory on Friday night at Elizabethton High School.
“Nine Ks for Dean Melinda, he did a wonderful, wonderful job,” Xplosion coach John Lee said. “He’s pitched very, very well all year. I’m excited to see what he is going to do on the high school level.
