Orange Post 127 built a five-run lead in the fourth inning and then held off East Haven’s charge for an 8-6 victory on Sunday. East Haven scored four runs in the failed comeback on a walk in the fifth, a walk in the sixth, and a wild pitch in the sixth.

An early lead helped propel Orange to victory. Post 127 scored on a double by Teddy Hague and a single by Al Smith in the first inning.

Orange scored four runs in the fourth inning. Post 127’s big inning was driven by a walk by Hague, a walk by Jack Nolan, a walk by Smith, and a single by Jared Smith.

East Haven scored three runs in the sixth inning. The big inning for East Haven came thanks to a walk and a wild pitch.

Ben Lodewick earned the win for Orange. He threw five innings, allowing three runs, four hits, and striking out two.

East Haven’s starting pitcher threw three and one-third innings, giving up seven runs, seven hits, and striking out two. The relief pitcher went two and two-thirds innings, allowing one run, two hits, and striking out two.

Post 127 collected nine hits. Smith and Tyler Appel each had two hits to lead Orange.

Orange is now 15-5 for the season. They were scheduled to play tonight at Old Tavern Park, but the field was not prepared.

BREAKING: Orange Little League Files Formal Protest Over Devastating Bad Call

The 11 year old Orange All Star Team went up against North Haven in the Semi-Final Play-offs Tuesday night.

North Haven crushed Orange 11-2 in the pool play last week.

Before they took the field, coach Powell Chodus told the boys that it wouldn’t be another 11-2 game. He said it would be close, but it would come down to whoever executed better.

After two innings North Haven played better than Orange and was leading 6-0, but at the bottom of the third, Orange gained a little momentum and got two runs, closing the gap to 6-2.

In the fourth inning North Haven didn’t score and Orange stole home when the catcher was throwing the ball back to the pitcher, making the score 6-3.

No one scored in the fifth inning, and North Haven didn’t score in the sixth either. Down 6-3, Orange stepped up its game in the bottom of the sixth. With two men on (1st and 2nd bases) and one out, the team’s number 9 hitter Jackson Lee stepped up to the plate. After two strikes, he hit one over the fence for a three run homer that would tie the game.

“It was incredible. The boys were jogging around the bases, the fans were so excited and our players came out of the dugout and lined up behind home plate to congratulate Jackson when he came in,” Chodus said. “The kids were milling around home plate as their teammates were coming in and the home plate umpire called interference. The first two runners were safe, but the kid who hit the home run was out because he was touched before he tagged home plate.”

According to Little League rules this is NOT interference and with the rule book behind them, the Orange coaches immediately protested the call.

This led to a 90-minute delay as the chain of command was contacted, from the district official to Bristol, CT, to Williamsport.

During this delay, North Haven had plenty of time to warm up a new pitcher, and the decision to uphold the umpire’s decision was announced. So, with the score at 6-5, bottom of the sixth and a fresh pitcher on the mound, the first Orange player at bat was struck out and North Haven won the game.

But Wait! It’s not over yet!

The district administrator told Chodus that they still had recourse, and if they submitted a letter of protest by this morning, she would present it to Williamsport and argue their position.

With any luck the call will be reversed and Orange will still be 6-6 in the bottom of the sixth and they will play North Haven until someone wins the semi final fairly.

“This was the most dramatic home run I’ve ever seen,” Chodus said. “I hope they do what’s right.”

Orange Live will post an update as soon as the final decision is announced.
