Alliance is headed to the Juniors Legion Baseball State Tournament as champions of the B7 District.
In Tuesday night’s B7 Championship Alliance roared back early and beat Ogallala 10-4 to earn the trip to Nebraska City.
The game was essentially decided in the first two innings. Ogallala jumped up 3-0 in the first without driving in a run using the bat. A hit-by-pitch and back to back bases loaded walks brought in three runs.
Alliance answered with eight in the top of the second in similar fashion. Three Spartans came in on walks and Alliance singled home three more in the big inning.
State begins this weekend with Alliance playing the final game of the night Saturday at 7:00 p.m. MT against the hosts – Nebraska City. If the Spartans win they’ll play Sunday night, an opening loss puts Alliance in the Sunday 1:00 game.
