May 9, 2019
Colfax and St. George's locked up in a close battle Saturday at McDonald Park in the first round elimination game. Colfax senior Nate Akesson took the win after dueling with St. George's senior Xander Workman.
The decider came in the third inning when Bulldog senior Kelen Becker tagged a two-run double for the Bulldogs. That plate battle featured two baseball players who left big marks during the winter's NE basketball campaign.
Becker's hit was one of just four by Colfax in the game and scored the only two runs of the game.
Akesson allowed the Dragons just two hits and struck out 11 bat...
