Salem/Montrose/Canova Post 140 advanced to the Championship game of the Region 5B tournament on Wednesday, with a 7-0 win over Lake Norden. Post 140 took advantage of an error, and an RBI groundout from Griffin Clubb, to take a 2-0 lead.
That was plenty of run support for Jack Neises. The SMC starter allowed just 4 hits, and struck out 5 in a complete game shutout win. Neises also had 2 hits and 2 RBI at the plate, to help send his team to the next round.
Salem/Montrose/Canova gets today off, while the rest of the tournament will battle in the Loser’s Bracket today. One team will advance to take on SMC tomorrow for the Region 5B title.
