Junction City wins on Military Appreciation Night

Dylan Thurber draws a walk during Saturday night's game against Barn Baseball Academy.

After taking the first two games of the series last week, the Junction City Brigade looked to sweep the Barn Baseball Academy Saturday night in front of its home crowd on Military Appreciation Night. Pitcher Jack Christian took the mound for the Brigade, and he delivered. 

In the first two games, the Brigade starters got off to shaky starts early, giving up a couple runs and forcing the offense to play catch up right away. After allowing the first two batters to reach base, it looked like that trend was going to continue, but Christian got a big double play from his defense to give JC some breathing room.
