Entering Thursday's double header with Harwood, the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team wasn't too concerned about getting the sweep.
Instead, the team was focused solely on the first game, a 14-4 win in five innings that clinched the No.3 seed in next week's Section 1 tournament in Lidgerwood.
"We kind of had to win and stay out of Wahpeton's bracket," said Valley City infielder Josh Gilbertson.
It was a victory that kept the team from dwelling on a 9-0 no-hit loss in the second game, which largely used the team's reserves.
