July 18, 2013

Kindred Takes Two from Valley City

July 17, 2013

Two seven inning games were played last night instead of the scheduled seven and five inning games. Officials decided to make up a June 17, rain-out in Kindred, between Valley City Post #60 and the Kindred Legion teams.
The first game was a real pitchers' duel had. Jaden Keys was on the mound for Valley City, and F. Andel was throwing for Kindred. Andel just threw heat, occasionally mixing in a cutter, but for seven innings, he made leather pop. Keys had his curve really working last night, to the point he was buckling batters' knees with it for seven innings.
