The Jamestown Legion baseball tournament began to take shape with six games Friday at Jack Brown Stadium.

In the opening game of the tournament's second day Regina held off Moose Jaw 7-6 before topping LaMoure 5-2. Coon Rapids did all its scoring in one inning to hand LaMoure its second loss of the day, winning 12-0 in five innings.

Pool play continues today when LaMoure tangles with Moose Jaw at 9 a.m., followed by Moose Jaw taking on Coon Rapids at 11 a.m. Regina then plays Coon Rapids at 1 p.m. followed by a home run derby at 3 p.m.

At 5 p.m. the No. 4 seeds, Washburn from Pool 1 and either Moose Jaw or LaMoure from Pool 2, challenge each other and at 7 p.m. the No. 3 seeds from each pool hook up.


Regina 7, Moose Jaw 6 (11 Innings)

Regina's Landon Adelman broke a 6-6 tie in the top of the 10th inning with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly for Regina's first victory of the tournament.

Eric Bryce went 3-for-5 with a home run and picked up the win in relief for Regina while Zach Horsma was 0-for-3 with four walks and a run scored.

Moose Jaw's Derek Kaytor was 4-for-6 with a double and two runs scored

Regina 5, LaMoure 2

With runs at a premium early Regina moved into the driver's seat of Pool 2 with its second victory of the day.

The Rangers grabbed an early 2-0 lead in the top of the second, scoring their first run on a Stefan Peters double to center past a diving Billy Gibbs. The second run came on an error in the infield but the Rangers gave back a run on an error in the home half.

Down 3-1 Donny Schrader shot an RBI double to centerfield, scoring Ben Holen to make it a 3-2 game.


But Regina picked up a healthy cushion with runs in the sixth, a Peters RBI single, and in the seventh, a Greg Friesen sacrifice fly.

Along with his two run-scoring hits, Peters walked and scored a run.

Holen finished 1-for-2 with a pair of walks for LaMoure and Nick Tollefson walked three times.

Coon Rapids 12, LaMoure 0 (5 Innings)

Quiet for two innings, the Coon Rapids offense exploded in the third.

Scoring with a pair of back-to-back RBI hits early and a Jake Pachler grand slam late, Coon Rapids tagged LaMoure starter Nick Tollefson for 12 runs in the frame, sending 16 batters to the dish in the inning in total.

Ross Meidinger relieved Tollefson with two outs and relinquished a single before getting the final out of the inning.

Meidinger broke up Brandon Baumgartner's no-hitter attempt in the fifth inning. Baumgartner struck out the side in the bottom of the fifth to finish the game, finishing with eight.


Devin Croal finished 3-for-3 with two runs and two runs driven in for Coon Rapids while Pachler was 2-for-3 with five RBI and two runs.

Cole Gentzkow, catching his second consecutive game of the day for LaMoure, finished with his team's other hit.

Mandan 18, Washburn 13

In a game that featured 32 hits between the two teams Mandan rallied from five runs down in the middle innings, overcoming a seven-run first from Washburn to claim a victory.

Mandan used three pitchers, settling with Jeff Werner who entered the game in the third and went the rest of the way for the victory.

Brandon Coyle homered, had a sacrifice fly and was hit by a pitch on his way to a three-hit, two-RBI day and Andrew Tweent was 3-for-4 including a triple.

Washburn's Mitch Wachendorf was 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored while Jason Durke was 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored.

Mandan 6, Thompson 3


Mandan led wire-to-wire, roughing up Dave Swatlowski for five runs in the first inning and holding on for the win.

Matt Keller's triple in the top of the first was the big blow, scoring three runs for the Chiefs.

Brian Borr tossed the complete-game winner for Mandan, who finishes pool play with a record of 2-1.

Zach Kvidt was 1-3 with a home run for

Jamestown 10, Thompson 8

Andrew Davidson hit a game-winning two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh for Jamestown's second one-run victory in as many games.

Post 14 played from behind until late as Thompson struck for three runs in the first inning, highlighted by Dave Swatlowski's two-run double.

Jamestown replied with a pair of runs in the home half as Greg Brown scored Zec Tahran on a sacrifice fly and Nick Walden's double plated Levi Gaunska.


Walden tied the game two innings later with a flare to right, scoring Brady Schoeler but Thompson's offense continued to produce.

After taking the lead on a past ball, Zach Kvidt dropped a bloop just inside the first base line, allowing Ricky Morgan to scramble across home.

Thompson added insurance in the sixth when Randy Syrstad singled to right and Kvidt slid safely into home when the ball came out of the glove of catcher Andy Lick. Tyler Kjemhus followed with an RBI double for a 7-3 lead.

But with one swing a half-inning later, Brady Schoeler evened the game at 7-7, driving a grand slam over the fence in right. Post 14's 10th batter of the inning, Kyle Walden, drew a bases-loaded walk for the go-ahead.

With the win, Post 14 secures a slot in the 10 a.m. game on Sunday.
