The American Legion Titans senior and junior baseball teams faced one another Friday night to kick off the three-day Ellis County Futures Tournament. The seniors came back to defeat the juniors 7-4 after trailing by two runs in the fourth inning “It was a good win, especially to come out here against a younger team,” senior Ryan Woods said. “They impressed me. They came out throwing punches. Great job by them.”
Senior starting pitcher Jason Waldeck (3 IP, 8 H, 4R — 4 ER, 3 W, 5 K) gave up eight hits and four runs during his time on the mound. Ryan Woods (4 IP, 1 W, 3K) took over during the fourth inning to hold the juniors the remainder of the game.
