The Salina Sliders won the first tournament in the program’s history, going 4-1 at the Hutchinson Wood Bat tournament.

The Sliders defeated the Rangers Baseball Academy of Park City 7-5 in the semifinals, before defeating Wellington’s South Central Gassers 5-2.

In the semifinal, the Sliders had just five hits, but capitalized on three errors and eight walks. Blake Jones picked up the win in relief.

In the finals, Mark Vaughn was the winner in relief, working out of a bases loaded jam in the fourth.

The Sliders will go to the Hutchinson College Showcase next weekend.
