DES MOINES —
Oskaloosa showed no ill effects from the disappointing semifinal loss in cruising to a 9–1 consolation game victory over the Omaha Stampede. Reed threw very well for the complete-game win, and Yates had two hits including a double. Kraber, Blythe, Reed, Dykstra, Hill, Rockhold, Hafner and Colton Jones all had base hits for the Hurricanes.
Oskaloosa is back in action this weekend taking a 15-10 record into the Summer Slam at Davenport. The Hurricanes will then wrap up their inaugural season June 28-30 competing against 50 teams at the 12U State Tournament in Des Moines.
