Legion baseball: Moorhead Blues hang on to win wild one against Fargo Post 400
The Blues held a 13 run lead early in the game but had to hold off Post 400's rally to secure the victory on Wednesday.
MOORHEAD — The Moorhead Blues looked to have things sewn up early against Fargo Post 400 on Wednesday but — late-inning fireworks later — the Blues had to hold on for a 20-17 win.
The Blues scored eight runs in the first inning, the last three coming on Justin Stalboerger's three-run home run. The Blues scored two more in the second, the big blasts being Carter Heinsch's two-run home run and Tyden Bergeson's two-run double.
But Post 400's Cheyton Senn hit a grand slam and Easton Rerick hit a solo homer in the fifth, and Rerick capped a six-run sixth with a grand slam that left the Blues clinging to a 13-12 lead.
But Moorhead righted their ship with four runs in the sixth, another run in the seventh and two more in the eighth for a 20-12 lead.
Post 2 rallied once again, scoring five runs in the top of the ninth before the Blues closed the door.
