The 3rd-ranked Beckman baseball team improved their record to 26-13 with a 9-5 win over #9 Cascade in the class 2A District 9 final Saturday night in Dyersville. The Blazers were out-hit by the Cougars 10-5 but took advantage of 8 Cascade errors and 14 Cougar runners left on base. Beckman Assistant Coach Fred Martin says they had to switch things up a little to try and get the win.
It was Beckman’s 24th District Final win in program history – the 4th in a row and 5th in 6 seasons. The Blazers will meet # 4 Wilton for the Substate 5 final at Linn-Mar in Marion on Tuesday night at 7 pm.
