"Our biggest problem this year is allowing the one big inning on us," Broken Bow coach Kyle Stringham said. "When we can limit that, it kinda lets us keep our head in and go through one of those longer games. They kept playing hard on defense and not allowing a lot to go through."
Taylor Shea had a very productive night at the plate, recording singles in all five of his plate appearances and driving in one run. Kleeb finished the night with a single and an RBI double while crossing the plate twice himself.
