State B Tourney in Mitchell
The defending state B champs from Alexandria took advantage of six Canton errors & five walks to advance to the next round in Mitchell, 15-7. Tyson Gau didn’t have his best stuff, allowing 7R (5ER) on 13H w/ 8K & 3BB in the CG effort, but the Angels’ bats were solid & they got some help from the Aces. Gau threw 162 pitches in the win, and he got it done at the dish as well, going 4/4 w/ a HR, 2R, and 3RBI.
Danny Flahie snapped a 3-all tie in the B8 w/ a bases-clearing triple as Madison took down Four Corners, 6-3. Flahie also doubled in the game and drove in four on the night. Nick Bird threw 2inn of relief for the win w/ Brady Banse getting the save in the 9th.
Little League Regionals in Indiana
The Sioux Falls Little Leaguers punched their ticket to the Midwest Region Finals in Westfield, IN, w/ a come-from-behind walk-off win over Missouri yesterday, 6-5. The South Dakotans sent five runs across in the B6 to remain as the lone unbeaten squad in the bracket. Trailing 5-1, Sioux Falls got back-to-back walks to start the frame. After a 2-run double made it 5-3, a hit batter and a single tied things at five with nobody down. After a pair of walks and a strikeout, Missouri stayed in it by getting out #2 at home on a fielder’s choice. An error on the next play would let SD move on to the finals, though, as the comeback was completed, 6-5. Sioux Falls awaits the survivor of elimination games between MO (Webb City), NE (Kearney), and IA (Johnston).
