Bartow, which scored one run Monday, had even less luck in its semifinal matchup with West Tampa, Fla., losing 5-0.
The first four batters scored for West Tampa in the bottom of the first inning, where Bartow pitcher Courtney Bailey had all three of her walks in the game.
"We gave up four runs, and I think it was only off two hits," said coach Jimmy Bailey. "I think the girls were a little nervous ... We just made a few errors, made a few bad (judgment calls).
"You just can't give good teams extra outs."
Bailey also acknowledged his team's struggles at the plate.
Bartow got just four hits -- Courtney Bailey, Bethany Ballard, Cassidy Howren, Ashlynn Russell -- and never got a runner past second base, according to Jeff Shinall of the Bartow County Parks and Recreation Department.
Following the first inning, Bartow held West Tampa scoreless until the sixth inning.
"The girls, they didn't give up, they fought," Jimmy Bailey said. "Courtney just bore down and pitched her heart out."
Courtney Bailey finished the game with two strikeouts and gave up five runs and five hits.
All those runs were unearned, Shinall said.
The loss eliminates Bartow, bringing an end to its hopes of playing in the Junior League World Series in Kirkland, Wash.
Bartow opened the tournament Saturday with a 14-1 win over a team from Myrtle Beach, S.C., and followed with a 12-5 win over Roxboro, N.C., Sunday before losing, 11-1, to Cape Coral, Fla., Monday.
"It's hard to lose ... but it's hard to be sad about it," Jimmy Bailey said. "They played great all summerlong, and they deserve all the credit ... they've done everything I've asked and believed everything we were teaching them.
"I think they've learned a lot."
Bailey not only spoke glowingly of his team, but of the Bartow recreation department as well as supportive parents and grandparents.
"The county doesn't get enough credit," he said.
Despite the painful ending to its title aspirations, Bartow can look to next summer.
"We'll just get reorganized and come back next year," Bailey said.
