The Clinton All-Stars broke open a close 1-0 game with nine runs in the fourth and fifth innings to take a 10-0 win over Tennessee in the Dixie Youth Ozone World Series in Oxford, AL on Tuesday.

Clinton scored two runs in the fourth and seven in the fifth to secure the win.

Clinton was led on the mound by Wil Stewart, who pitched four innings, giving up two hits, no runs and striking out seven. Zach Fortman pitched a scoreless fifth inning, allowing no hits.

Clinton scored one in the first off of three walks and a double from Austin Copeland.

The fourth saw Clinton score two more off a solo homerun from Wilson Wages, a single from Luke White and a triple from RT Corley.

Clinton ended the game in the fifth with seven runs. Clinton got four singles, four walks and an error in the inning, highlighted by a 2-RBI double from Stewart. 

"Tennessee is a very good team,” said Clinton head coach Matt Stewart. “Their pitching and defense was as good as we've seen this year. Hats off to Wil Stewart for keeping us in the game through four innings, as we were struggling a little at the plate. Great job by our guys of hanging in there and battling at the plate, finally put some good swings together.”

With the win, Clinton advances to play Texas on Wednesday at 1pm at Choccolocco Park in Oxford.
