FORT SCOTT, Kan. — The Butler County (Kansas) Yankees proved rough Saturday on the Neosho 18s in the FSCC showcase tournament at LaRoche Field.
The Yankees scored five runs in the first en route to a 10-0 run-rule win over the Wildcats.
Tritten Beavers, who recently led Bluestem High baseball in Leon, Kansas to the first state championship in school history (43 years of existence), proved both strong on the mound and at the plate for the Yankees on Saturday.
Beavers pitched an abbreviated four-inning perfect game and then supported himself and the Yankees with two hits and two RBI.
Eight of the nine players in the Yankees lineup collected at least one hit and five of them enjoyed a multi-hit game. Chris Callahan led the way with three and Dakota Clift, Nolan Riley, Beavers and Clay Wesbrooks each had two.
No runners reached base for Neosho and Beavers struck out six different Wildcats.
Jacob Galbraith took the loss for the Wildcats, going the distance of 3 1/3 innings before the run-rule took effect.
Neosho’s winning streak ended at four games and the Wildcats dropped to 9-3 with the loss. The Wildcats closed out play in the four-day showcase with two games Sunday, against the Wichita Sluggers 16 and the Pittsburg Dragons.
