The Manchester 15 year-old Babe Ruth All-Star team had to win twice on Monday to earn a berth into the state tournament. And win they did; beating Franklin County 13-3 and 5-4 in the night-cap.
In game one Dallas Bryan knocked in Andrew Henley with the run that institute the 10 run rule. Daniel Gassman was the winning pitcher.
In game two with the district championship on the line the score was tied 4-4 in the 7th. Kyle Douglas doubled and later in the inning scored on a Dallas Bryan fielder’s choice making it 5-4 Manchester. In the bottom of the 7th Franklin County had the tying run at 3rd and a 3-2 count on the batter and tried to steal home but the runner was tagged out to end the game.
