Outlaws edge


The Outlaws bounced back from Saturday’s loss to edge LeSuer-Henderson 5-4 as American Legion State Tournament Division II play continued at LeSeur on Saturday, July 30.

Janke pitched five and two-thirds innings with three strikeouts, four walks and three hits. Whited closed and pitched one and one-third inning with no strikeouts, no walks and one hit.

Janke had three hits, including two doubles and he had three RBIs. Wyatt Lampel had a double and scored two runs. Charlie Adamczak had two RBIs and scored a run. Carlson and Whited each scored a run.

Unfortunately the Division II tournament was not a double elimination format. A tie-breaker was employed with runs being scored against the teams used as the determining factor.

Although the Outlaws notched the one-run 5-4 victory over LeSuer-Henderson on Saturday, they had the three-run 6-3 loss to St. Charles on Friday. LeSuer-Henderson had a two-run 5-3 loss to St. Charles on Friday.

The Outlaws had a 4-0 lead in the sixth inning during Saturday’s game, but LeSuer-Henderson was able to tie the game up at 4-4. Despite the Outlaws winning the game by one run at 5-4, the opponents were given the nod to advance via the tie-breaker.

LeSuer-Henderson lost 11-1 to Giant Valley on Sunday, but beat Pierz 12-2 for third place.

The 8th District Division II repeat champion Outlaws had finished very strong as they had come into that tournament with a 9-18 record and swept all three games to earn the trip to the state tournament with a record of 12-18 and won one of their two games at state to end up with an overall record of 13-19.
