Canova and DR Mudcats both avoided first round upsets at the State Amateur Baseball Tournament at SF Stadium Thursday afternoon. And they will face each other in a 2nd round matchup...
Jesse Kurtenbach's dramatic 2-run HR in the 9th gave Dells a 4-3 win over Garretson, spoiling a great pitching performance from Kirby Morsching.
The in the 2nd game of the day Chamberlain built what looked like an insurmountable lead when Bryce Kreutzfeldt crushed a 2-run double in the top of the 5th and it was 6-0 with Canova came to bat in the bottom of the 5th. That's when Devin Alfson hit the first of back to back 3-run HR's. He also connected in the 7th to tie the game and the defending champs scratched out 2 more runs for a dramatic 8-6 win.
