Another five-run inning was all the Dell Rapids Legion baseball team needed to notch their second victory at the 2018 State B Legion Tournament in Redfield. Dell Rapids would add a seven-run inning for good measure on their way to a 12-1 victory over Tabor on Saturday, July 28th.
With the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the third inning, Matt Gillogly singled to right field scoring Ty Wood for the first run of the game. Two batters later Elijah Story hit a grand slam home run to left field to give Dell Rapids a 5-0 lead.
Tabor scored their lone run in the bottom of the fourth inning. Joey Slama hit an RBI double that scored Bryce Scieszinski.
Wood hit a sacrifice fly for the second out of the fifth inning, but the flyout scored Keegan Miller to make the score 6-1. Dell Rapids then scored six more times before the third out. Josh Roemen hit an RBI single, Jake Rechtenbaugh and Roemen scored on an error, and Gillogly hit a three-run home run to make the score 12-1. Tabor did not score in the bottom of the fifth inning, and the game ended on the 10-run rule.
Eddie Price pitched a complete game allowing one earned run on two hits while walking three batters and striking out eight. Holm and Gillogly both had two hits in the game. Roemen, Price, Story, Rechtenbaugh, and Wood also had hits. Story and Gillogly both had four RBIs each in the game.
Dell Rapids will play Spearfish on Sunday, July 29th at 7:00 p.m.
