Astros earn sixth seed for sectionals

It’s a bad habit that keeps reccurring for the Hazen American Legion team, one no one can seem to put a finger on. But one thing is for sure, no matter the amount of the lead, any game is within reach of a loss. The Astros proved the theory once more this past week as they allowed a 6-4 lead to slip between their fingers as Washburn claimed the 7-6 walk off win in the seventh inning.

The unfortunate losses forced the Astros to drop a spot in the final stands to sixth but the opportunity is being looked at as a positive. Hazen and Washburn will rematch for the opening round of the Section 8 Tournament this week. The double elimination event runs July 22 - 26 at Mandan’s Memorial Ball Park.
