They say pitching and defense win championships

And that may be so ...but if you outscore opponents 59 to 14 in a four game stretch...that works too

Kearney Runza ...bashing it's way to an 8th straight district crown

Earning a spot in the legion state tournament in Grand Island

After running rough shot through the competition ...this past weekend in North Platte

I feel everybody is pretty confident at the plate. We're all starting to get good swings on the ball.

Just being a little more disciplined at the plate and not swinging at bad pitches and just being patiently aggressive.

Kearney ...heads to Ryder Park

Winners of 7 straight

It's last loss Millard South

Their opponent in the opening round tomorrow

They do a lot of things like hitting, running, and bunting for base hits. Those type of things. We need to take care of the small ball things that go on in the game of baseball.

We have confidence knowing we can beat them, but it is hard to beat a team the second time. I think we believe we can do it, but we are definitely going to have to score some runs to beat them.

Runza begins play tomorrow against Millard South 4:30
