New Orleans defeats Brooklyn 10-0 to improve to 3-0 in AAABA play
New Orleans improved to 3-0 in the pool play round of AAABA Tournament play Wednesday, defeating Brooklyn 10-0 in seven innings at Roxbury Park.
The Boosters scored a run in the first on an RBI single by Christian Westcott. Lane LeBlanc walked to lead off the second before scoring on a double by Kaile Levatino.
A two-run single by Brady Faust in the second padded the lead to 4-0. New Orleans added three in the fifth and three in the seventh before their 10-0 mercy rule defeat of Brooklyn.
Wednesday’s win marked the Boosters’ third mercy rule victory in the tournament.
With the win, New Orleans closes pool play as the #1 seed in pool A, and the Boosters will face Altoona Thursday at noon Central time in the single elimination quarterfinal round.
This summer marks New Orleans 75th anniversary of the franchise’s first AAABA appearance in 1946. The Boosters are the defending champions, having claimed the 2019 title before the tournament’s pandemic-induced cancellation in 2020.
