49ers defeat Wild in Interior Legion baseball battle

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Across the street from Growden, our two legion baseball teams were in action against each other.
The Fairbanks Post 11 49ers hosted the North Pole Post 30 Wild, defeating the Wild 6-3 in seven innings. ​
Post 30 actually jumped out to an early lead, gaining a 3-1 advantage after the first inning of work. ​
The Niners erased that deficit with three runs in the third inning to take a lead that they would never surrender. ​
They secured the victory with two more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. ​
Gus Jensen finished with two RBIs for Post 11 on a 2 for 3 effort at the plate. ​
Travis Moore, Shaun Conwell, and William Boswood all added an additional RBI for the Niners. ​
Conwell also pitched 5.2 innings for Post 11, striking out 11 batters and only allowing 4 hits. ​
Josh Bronson pitched 1.1 innings of relief and struck out two batters while not allowing a hit. ​
These two teams will play once again tonight at Arco Field. ​
