Win & In Recap

Cheney 5, Great Bend 3

Down three  to zero  after 5, the Diamond Dawgs got a run back in the top of the 6th and scored two in the seventh to force extra innings. For Great Bend, starter Gyenonglu Kim was excellent for six innings before giving way to the bullpen with a lead in the seventh. But Bradley Demco was dominant in relief for the Cheney Diamond Dawgs and turned the tide long enough for the offense to get back into one. Demco threw 5.1 scoreless innings of relief while striking out seven and only allowing two hits. Phil Ingram had three hits and Travis Young scored twice to seal the win. The Cheney Diamond Dawgs have qualified for Championship Week with a game set for Sunday at 4pm against the Seattle Studs.

Mulvane Patriots 5, Austin Shockers 1

Ryan Erickson held the Shockers silent but it was Channing Williams who stole the game in the top of the ninth with a clean steal of home to produce the winning run. Dalton Dinkle added a two run double to open up the score. Erickson sealed what was ruled as a one hitter, the lone blemish being a fourth inning. Mulvane advances to Championship Week and will draw a first round matchup with the San Diego Waves at 1:30pm on Sunday.
