2018 Legion Baseball State Tournament Brackets – AA State & AAA State

The AA state legion baseball tournament continued Friday with the final day of pool play from Somerset Park in Sabetha, and so far Silver Like has punched its ticket to Saturday after taking down Iola 7-3.

Silver Lake Scores Early, Tacks on Late to Down Iola

After playing the late game Thursday night and suffering a loss to Hoisington, Silver Lake showed no signs of quit scoring early and tacking on late in a 7-3 must-win over Iola.

Post 160 wasted no time jumping out in front scoring four runs in the first inning on three hits and three walks. Trent Byers led off the inning with a walk, then Mitch Flanagan walked before Cale Adams singled in Byers. Flanagan, Adams and Will Boyd also came around to score thanks to a groundout and two singles.

The 4-0 lead for Silver Lake held until the fourth, as Cale Adams gave up just one hit on the mound through the first four innings. Silver Lake was then able to tack on another run in the fourth on an RBI-groundout from Adams, before adding two more in the fifth on an RBI-groundout from Trent Byers and a run on a wild pitch.

Iola was able to finally get on the scoreboard with a run in the sixth and two more in the seventh, but Adams proved to be too much on the mound as he allowed just five hits total in the contest tossing a complete game.

Offensively Silver Lake only mustered together six hits, but took advantage of six walks and an error.

Silver Lake finished pool play with a record of 2-1, and due to tiebreakers will be the second team out of pool A and play the top seed out of pool B Saturday at 12:15 p.m.

Sabetha’s Season Ends with Dominant Win over Garnett

Behind a no-hitter from Braden Aragabright, the Sabetha Raptors closed the 2018 season on a high-note with an 8-0, five inning run-rule victory over Garnett Friday night.

Sabetha wasted no time jumping out in front scoring two runs in the first inning on an error and an RBI-groundout from Seth Burdick.

The Raptors tacked on another run in the second and two more in fourth to lead 5-0 after three innings, while Braden Argabright did his part on the mound setting the first nine Garnett batters he faced down in order striking out six.

Sabetha tacked on two more runs in the third and one in the fourth on RBIs from Blake Frey and Argabright, before Brandon Brownlee ended the game via run-rule with a 2-RBI single in the fifth.

Braden Argabright was named the McDonald’s “Player of the Game” on 103.9 KNZA, as he toss a five-inning no-hitter allowing just one walk while striking out nine in a dominant performance.

Sabetha ends the year with a record of 30-12, with a 1-2 showing at the AA state tournament in 2018.  

Marysville Takes Pool B with Win over Hays

Despite trailing early, Marysville used a big third inning to take down Hays 6-3 to win pool B and go undefeated in pool play.

Things didn’t start great for Marysville as Hays plated two runs in the first inning on three hit batsmen and an RBI single from Cole Zimmerman.

Marysville finally got on the board with an RBI-double from Brennan Wetter in the third, and then tacked on three more runs in the fourth on one hit, two walks and an error to lead 4-2 after three innings.

That score held until the fifth when Marysville got another run thanks to two errors and a walk as Adam Lindhorst came around to score on an error.

Marysville then put the nail in the coffin with a run in the seventh on an RBI-double by Derek Roever, who was on base four times in the contest.

Adam Lindhorst was also on base three time and scored three runs, while Jonny Crome also crossed the plate twice.
