Legion Baseball

Last night’s First State Bank American Legion junior and senior baseball games with Lincoln Southwest at Novak Field were called off due to wet grounds.  The First State Seniors will play in the Omaha South Tournament this weekend, the First State Juniors will play in the Omaha Central Tournament, this weekend, as well.

In senior legion baseball last night, Hickman defeated Blair 4-3.

Omaha built an early 6-run advantage, and held off the Oklahoma City Dodgers over the rest of the game in an 8-5 victory on Wednesday night at Bricktown Ballpark.

Omaha Storm Chasers

The Storm Chasers (23-29) will continue the series this evening at 7:05. LHP Jon Dziedzic(2-5, 3.25) will throw for Omaha, while Oklahoma City will counter with LHP Caleb Ferguson.

Lincoln Saltdogs

An afternoon downpour and a rainy forecast for the rest of the night has pushed the scheduled game between the Lincoln Saltdogs and the Winnipeg Goldeyes to today.  The postponement means the two clubs will play a doubleheader starting at 11:05 AM at Shaw Park.

The two games will each be seven-inning contests.

The rematch of the 2017 American Association Semifinals is tied at one game apiece.  Lincoln (6-6) won 14-6 on Monday while the Goldeyes (7-4) claimed a 6-4 win on Tuesday.
