Jamestown Post 14 avoided a winless home tournament with a walkoff victory on Sunday. Nolan Kratz capped a huge game with a two-out, two-run double to finish off Jamestown's 8-7 win over Fargo Post 400 at the Phil Brown Classic.

He clubbed a two-run homer in the fifth inning to knot the game at 5-all.
