The Salina Falcons Senior American Legion baseball team is heading back to state for the third straight year after defeating Manhattan 11-7 on Wednesday at Dean Evans Stadium.
Manhattan built an early 3-0 lead, but a five-run fourth inning and a four-run fifth inning put the Falcons up 9-3. Manhattan would get no closer than three runs the rest of the way.
Conner Boyer picked up the win in relief, while Sam Mermis converted the save.
The Falcons will open play in the Class AAA State Tournament on July 30.
