Del Mar Powerhouse 10U boys earned their first tournament championship of the season last weekend in the XDS Battle of the Bats tournament played in Chula Vista. The boys earned the No. 1 seed after pool play and a decisive semifinal victory set them up for a hard-fought championship game. The boys were trailing the entire game until the fourth inning, when the bats came alive and a walk-off single in the bottom of the sixth inning gave them the 5-4 championship victory.
