The Dell Rapids Post 65 Legion baseball team picked up its third win in a row and seventh overall Monday, July 1st, as they beat Aurora 9-6 in Dell Rapids. Wes Hansen hit his second home run of the season among two other hits while driving in four runs to lead the Dell Rapids offense. Spencer Kerzman pitched six innings, Tanner Solberg threw the seventh and eighth innings, while Hansen finished off the game in the ninth.
Aurora made the game tense in the ninth inning by loading the bases with one out, but Austin Kubly made a great play by running back on a soft fly ball to shallow right field and then threw out the runner at the plate to end the game.
Dell Rapids Post 65 will host West Central on Monday, July 8th, and then travel to Aurora on Tuesday, July 9th, in upcoming games.
