Legion Baseball: Velva 15 Valley City 5
Wahpeton, ND (WDAY TV) - There always seems to be one Cinderella story in the post season no matter what the sports.
This year in Class A baseball it's Valley City, winners of just 4 games before the state tournament. Post 60 won their first two of the tournament, but they had their backs up against midnight today facing Velva, winner advances to the championship series, loser has their season come to an end.
Velva jumps out early, Eli Luna with the grounder to the left side, it finds its way through the drawn in infield; Brad Dean scores to make it 1-0.
Valley City had a hard time getting outs this afternoon. This one comes via strikeout as Austin Meyer gets the batter to go down swinging on the curve ball.
Later on more offense from Velva, Drew Efforts splits the gap in left that plates two more runners to push it to 11-1 only in the third.
Velva cruises 15-5.
