The Broken Bow senior team used a five-run fourth inning to beat Kearney Little Ceasers 8-7 Tuesday night.
â€śWe didnâ€™t walk a lot of batters tonight,â€ť Broken Bow coach Ryan McAlexander said. â€śThe defense played really well and we hit the ball. Those three things are always a winning combination.â€ť
Bow trailed 3-2 heading into the bottom of the 4th before getting RBI hits from Hunter Campbell, Caleb Dodge, Jake McCormick and Garret Ulmer.
Josey Evans also got a run across with a sacrifice fly on the inning.
The Broken Bow juniors played a back and forth game with Kearney Five Points that ended with a big top of 7th inning from Kearney en route to a 10-5 victory.
The Indians trailed just 5-4 heading into the top of the 7th inning before Kearney was able to find the gaps against Taylor Shea, who took over for starter Jake McCormick.
â€śWe faced McCormick the last time we played them, so Iâ€™m surprised we didnâ€™t pick up on him sooner, but eventually our kids made the adjustments,â€ť Kearney Coach Jacob Pacheco said. â€śThatâ€™s what we preach, making adjustments.â€ť
