Williams Tosses Three-Hitter in World Series Finale

October 4, 2003 · MT Media Relations
John Williams appeared to be back in his old form on Saturday, hurling a three-hit complete game as the White Squad finally got on the board with an 8-0 win over the Blue in the final game of the annual Blue-White World Series.

Williams got help early in the contest as his team struck in the top of the first inning. With two outs, Jeff Kemp doubled to left center and Ryan Darnell followed with a single to plate the run.

The White team would seal the deal in the top of the fourth. With the bases loaded and two outs, Troy Harp blasted a line drive over the left field wall for a grand slam, giving the White a 5-run advantage.

The White team went on to add another run in the fifth and two more in the sixth in cruising to the victory.

Williams struck out five while walking only one in his complete game effort. Darnell, Harp, and Chris LeGuenec each had two hits to lead the White attack.

The Blue Team, which had won the previous two games in the series, got hits from Josh Archer, David Patterson, and Tommy Decker.

Travis Horschel, who gave up five earned runs in four innings, took the loss for the Blue.
