American Legion Baseball: Kansas AA State Tournament
With two outs in the top of the seventh inning, starting pitcher Derek Bycroft stared at the final Marysville batter.
Seconds ago, he gave up his first hit of the game a double that barely missed the glove of Iola centerfielder Isaac Vink. With the no-hitter no longer in play, he focused.
A pitch led to a groundout to second baseman Blake Ashmore ending the game and securing the Post 15 Iola Indians fourth American Legion AA State Title on Saturday at Somerset Park in Sabetha.
