Prescott Orthodontics will play for the District 10 Majors Tournament championship Sunday afternoon after routing Camp Verde in the semifinals Saturday night at Riverfront Park in Cottonwood.
Ortho needed only four innings to dispatch Camp Verde, 11-0, and gain a measure of revenge against the same foe that upset the hometown club in the opening round of this tourney last year.
"It was an unbelievable game," Ortho coach Steve Graham said. "The whole team rallied together offensively (to get the job done)."
Prescott's Brance Christopherson, who on Friday torched the three-run homer that helped guide Ortho to a 4-3 come-from-behind win over Wickenburg in the quarterfinals, pitched a complete-game shutout against Camp Verde on Saturday.
Ortho will move on to battle Prescott Valley in the title game at 4 p.m. Sunday at Riverfront Park. PV defeated host Verde Valley, 3-1, on Saturday to advance.
In the Minors Division, Prescott (Patriot Disposal) defeated host Verde Valley in the semifinals 19-18. Prescott advances to play for the District 10 title against Dewey-Humboldt, which won by forfeit over Sedona on Saturday.

The team's name is Prescott Orthodontics, not Prescott Orthopedics. Congratulations to both the Majors and Minors team for representing Prescott LL so well! Good Luck tonight!
