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 previously defeated LaMoure 12-2 in June 3â€™s District home-opening win, then Bryce Nelsonâ€™s fifth-inning walk-off single to right notched an 11-10 non-conference win.
