B.B. Bates, Andrea Harrison and Devon Lindvall boosted the Bruins (48-11) this past weekend in Oklahoma City with power and defense from the outfield. Harrison has been on a tear all tournament. Bates had a huge 2 run HR against the Bulldogs and it was spectacular defense from Lindvall in outfield that helped preserved Bruins 5-2 win over Georgia. Now they meet their toughest challenge yet as they take on arch nemesis Arizona Wildcats (52-12) in the championships series.
