This is the Update Saturday I promised — I’ll keep scores and results rolling on this post until they’re all said and done.
First up is the No. 17 Emporia State baseball team No. 13 Grand Valley State 3-0 at the NCAA Division II World Series in Cary, N.C. Second baseman Jacob White his his first career home run in the fifth inning to give ESU a 1-0 lead and the Hornets tacked on runs in the seventh and ninth to finish things off. Pitcher Colby Killian — the regional tournament MVP — scattered
three hits over seven innings for the win. Kapaun product Dominik King pitched a scoreless eighth and Diego Soto took over in the ninth for the save.
Cowley is leading 9-7 in the sixth over Seminole State at the NJCAA World Series in Grand Junction, Colo. … will update when that game is over. Also stay tuned for JuCo and DII track stuff from their national tournaments.
