Another big game from Brady Anderson wasn’t quite enough in the opener.
Post 14 rallied late to take the lead, scoring three runs in the top of the seventh inning for a 4-3 edge. Post 14 could not hold the lead however. Aberdeen tied it in the bottom of the frame and then won it with a single run in the bottom of the eighth off Jamestown reliever Jake Stilwell.
Anderson clubbed a home run, doubled and had three RBIs to lead Jamestown. Landon Weiser added two hits, a run and an RBI.
Tyler Ukestad was effective for 6 1/3 innings on the mound, working around eight hits and three walks.
Joey Gebhardt had the other Jamestown hit and also scored.
