Mountville’s Logan Harelson changed things up Friday when facing Manheim Township in the 73rd annual LNP Tournament Midget-Midget championship game.

“I used a different kind of curveball to throw off their timing and then the fastball when I needed it,” he said.

With the way the Streaks played in their four games this week, the lanky lefty made the right decision.

Harelson struck out 12 Township batters in 5 1/3 innings, and reliever Ethan Green got the final two outs, helping Mountville to the LNP title, 4-3.

The win, in front of a huge crowd at Kunkle Field in Mount Joy, was the 901st for Indians coach Bob Sauders.

“If you’re around long enough,” Sauders joked when asked about the milestone. “Mountville is a special association. It really is. We are a community — look how many people were here. People come out and support the players and the kids. It’s great to see that.”

The top-seeded Indians trailed 3-2 heading to the bottom of the fourth as Streaks pitcher Josh Boll was on top of his game.

Levi Hackman led off the home fourth with a single to right-center. He was erased on a fielder’s choice by Ryan Jackson, who promptly stole second and scored on Josh Toole’s double off the fence in right, tying the game.

Toole gave way to courtesy runner Anthony DiNardi, who took third on a groundout and scored on Jordan Young’s infield hit, giving the Indians their first and only lead of the game.

Harelson struck out five straight in the fourth and fifth innings and opened the sixth by fanning the first batter, then left to a huge ovation.

Green entered, inducing a ground ball for the second out and, although he hit Ryan Turner with an 0-2 pitch, got a strikeout to end the game and the tournament.

“I was confident. He threw well all season and he hasn’t thrown against them,” Harelson said of handing the ball off to Green. “I knew we could do it. We just had to play our game.”

It was Mountville’s second one-run victory of the week, although the 4-3 final looked much different than the 12-11 win past Warwick on Tuesday.

“That’s what we call baseball,” Sauders said.

After topping No. 2 Warwick on Wednesday to reach the final, fourth-seeded Manheim Township jumped on the Indians in the top of the first.

Boll led off the game with a long double to right-center. One out later, he scored on an Andrew Flury single up the middle.

Mountville answered in the bottom of the inning on a Harelson single and Hackman double.

Hackman reached third on a balk, but Streaks second baseman Kaden Kemp robbed Jackson of a hit and alertly doubled Hackman off third to end the inning.

Ty Mulholland singled in the top of the second, stole second, went to third on a flyout and came home on an error, putting the Streaks up 2-1.

However, the lead lasted until the bottom of the inning, when Logan Weyforth singled with one out, went to second on a throwing error, stole third and scored on Young’s RBI groundout.

Yet, the Streaks answered in the top of the third as Flury drew a leadoff walk and Owen Marks grounded an opposite-field double over the third-base bag, sending courtesy runner Kemp to third.

Mulholland’s infield hit plated Kemp, but Indians catcher Josh Toole prevented further damage by gunning out Mulholland on a steal attempt. 3-2.

Lost in the performance of Harelson was Township’s Boll, who threw a complete game, holding the Indians to only six hits with just one walk and four strikeouts.

“Josh is a gamer,” Streaks coach Brandon Eckman said. “We needed him tonight and he really stepped up. He pitched a gem. That’s the best I have seen him pitch, probably since 10U.”

During the postgame ceremony, Sauders told the crowd that Friday’s game could have gone either way.

“Mountville is tough; we played them 4-3, and like coach (Sauders) said, it could have went either way,” Eckman said. “I am proud of these guys. We weren’t supposed to be in the championship game. We were the fourth seed coming in.”
