Huberty into pitch the sixth.
What's that a breeze coming through Rogers Park? ... that felt good!

It should be a good tournament. If seeds play out, it could be a Newman/Garrigan final.
Christensen up now ... Mustangs lead 4-1 in top of the sixth.
5-1 now ... Christensen single to center.
1A baseball tournament will come down to pitching depth ... always seems to ... I think Garrigan and Newman both have two or three pitchers that can get outs.
Hess rbi on sac fly ... 6-1 iwth to outs.
I would guess Lapointe will pitch the opener. He's turned into their ace.
3 runs on four hits for the Mustangs.
Yes, Vaske is tough. If he's on, he will be tough to beat. He throws hard and he's a great batter, as well.
Garrigan won a tough NCC. Clear Lake, St. Edmond also good as well and Clarion-Goldfield made a run to the substate final in 2A.
Newman down 6-1 in bottom of the sixth .... top of the order up for the Knights.
Halsted strikes out ... Grant up now.
Yes, Jeff Jerome has done a great job with that program over in Forest City. Isaac Tuttle is the Indians ace ... a left-handed junior ... they also start three freshman .... things looking good for the Indians.
Grant grounds out ... Ruen up.
Ruen drills a 1-2 pitch to the fence in right center field for a double. Balek up now.
Balek flies out to right ... 90-minute time limit for consolation game is called ... mustangs win 6-1.
That will be all from here at the state softball tournament.
