The Albion Cornerstone Legion Baseball Seniors concluded the program’s return season by losing a pair of contests in the American Legion Area B-5 district tournament at Central City.
Valentine used a nine-run sixth inning to rally from a 10-2 deficit and defeat the Albion Seniors 13-11 Thursday. In loser’s bracket play Saturday, host Central City eliminated Albion Cornerstone 10-7.
Valentine 13, Albion 11
Building an eight-run lead, Albion Cornerstone looked like it was well on its way to an opening victory Thursday, July 19, in the Area B-5 district tournament at Central City.
Albion could not hold off a late-inning Valentine blitzkrieg, however, allowing 11 runs in the fifth and sixth frames of a 13-11 loss.
Central City 10, Albion 7
Unlike in its district opener, Albion Cornerstone got off to a bad start in Saturday’s B-5 elimination game, falling behind 10-0 and coming up short in a 10-7 decision against tournament host Central City.
