The Salina Falcons Senior American Legion baseball team won its zone tournament opener yesterday, knocking off Buhler 10-7.
The Falcons used a five-run fourth inning to take the lead for good. Buhler cut the deficit to a run in the seventh, but the Falcons added two insurance runs.
Justin McCartney picked up the win on the mound.
The Falcons face Newton at 5pm today at Dean Evans Stadium. The winner clinches one of two spots from the zone in next week’s state tournament in Pittsburg. In elimination bracket play, Buhler faces Junction City at 2pm, while Manhattan awaits the winner of the Buhler/Junction City game in the nightcap.
