Following a 15-10 win by the Breckenridge Junior Legion, Post 53’s road showdown with Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton, Minnesota, started more than an hour late on Tuesday, July 2. At press time, DGF led 3-2.
Post 397 struck first with a pair of runs in the opening inning. The leadoff hitter wore a pitch and the cleanup man did his job with a two-run bomb across the street behind right-center field.
Post 53 got on the board in the fourth when Jeremy Stack took home on a wild pitch. Hayden Schuler evened the score in the following inning. After getting on with a single, the speedy Breck runner took two bases on a wild pitch. Andrew Kram plated Schuler with a sacrifice fly.
The hosts capitalized on an error and regained the lead with a hard base hit to right.
