LaMoure gave visiting Valley City trouble with multitudes of runners on base Tuesday night at Townsend Park, but eight Babe Ruth batters landed at least a hit in the 12-5 District win, as did seven in the 13-3 finisher, to complete the four-game season sweep.
â€śOur pitching wasnâ€™t as sharp as it has been, and we had for find ways to overcome it,â€ť Babe Ruth head coach Lance Lukes said. â€śScoring in six of seven innings is one of those ways that we helped: it gave our pitchers some backing to know that we will come up with some runs to support them.â€ť

Valley City Babe Ruth beat Lisbon twice on the road Thursday night, coming back from a 9-5 fourth-inning deficit for a nine-inning 12-9 District win and surviving a three-run third frame in the 6-3 non-District finisher.
â€śWe didnâ€™t come out playing our best,â€ť Valley City head coach Lance Lukes said. â€śWe were just kind of going through the motions and not putting anything really into it. We left too many runners on base and didnâ€™t execute some of the little things that we need to be doing.â€ť

Drew Oberlanderâ€™s third-inning single had Valley City Babe Ruth up 3-2 in Sundayâ€™s Pizza Corner Classic championship, but Carringtonâ€™s two-run single in the fourth sparked an 8-4 trophy triumph.
â€śWe didnâ€™t play our best baseball and, when youâ€™re playing a good team like Carrington, if you donâ€™t play well, you wonâ€™t beat a good team,â€ť Valley City head coach Lance Lukes said. â€śWe made too many mistakes
out there: fielding errors, throwing errors, pitching errors, and Carrington, being the good team they are, took advantage of them.â€ť
