Jacob Cheeseman’s RBI groundout with the bases loaded capped a 6-run 7th inning, and gave the McCook/Miner Legion team an 11-10 walk-off win over Dell Rapids on Monday night.
Down five runs entering the bottom of the 7th, Kalub Carmichael and Sam Gillespie started the rally with back-to-back doubles. After the next two batters were each hit by a pitch, Jackson Fiegen laced a hit to left to drive in two more runs. Dylan Klinkhammer then drew a bases loaded walk before Cheeseman drove in the winning run.
Sam Gillespie finished with 2 hits and 3 runs scored for McCook/Miner. Tuschen also had 2 hits, and Fiegen drove in 3 runs. The loss for Dell Rapids spoiled a great day at the plate for Jon Wilhelmsen, who scored 3 and drove in 3 runs while also hitting a 2-run homer.
McCook/Miner Legion improved to 7-2 this season, with Dell Rapids falling to 11-5.
