The Stockade were finally able to score in the eighth inning off an RBI single from third baseman, Jordan Caillouet, that would start a spark through the final inning.
Salina added a second and final run in the ninth inning with a RBI double to left field from shortstop, Logan Trowbridge, butultimately would not be able to come back from Kansas City’s early start.
