The Madison Broncos opened up the Class B Amateur Baseball State Tournament last night in Mitchell with a 6-2 win over the Plankinton Gold Sox. 

The Gold Sox got the first run of the game in the bottom of the first, before Broncos matched it in the second. The Gold Sox then regained the lead in the third, however that would be the last time the Gold Sox led the Broncos.

Madison’s strong fourth inning helped to propel them to a 4-2 lead, getting three runs in the inning, two thanks to walks with bases loaded. The Broncos scored two more runs, one in the sixth and then one more in the ninth to give them the 6-2 win and allow them to advance in the tournament.

Ty Jorgenson scored three of the six runs for the Broncos, two of which came in off of RBI Single’s from Mitch McNary. Jorgenson also had 2 hits. McNary and Heith Williams led the Broncos with hits, each getting three. Williams also had an RBI, while McNary had two RBI’s and a run. 

Getting the win for the Broncos was Tyler Tappe, who struck out six in 7 ⅓ innings, while also allowing six hits and two runs.

Madison will move on to play Garretson on Sunday, August 7th at 5:30pm. That game will be aired on AM 1390.
