Would there be one game, or two in the National Division of the American Legion baseball championship at Ryder Park in Grand Island tonight?

Let's go to Ryder where GI Home Federal needed one victory and Creighton Prep had to defeat Home Federal twice.

These teams have met many time in high school and in Legion Ball.

Here in the 2nd, Prep has a man at first with Mike Amodi up there.

He lofts one deep to center and this ball will clear the fence for a two run homer off Seth Roberg and it was 2–0.

GI Home Federal Manager Tino Martinez replace Roberg with Parker Upton on the mound.

Prep looking for more with the bases loaded and one out.

On the fly to left, Roberg is out there. He catches the ball.

The man tags and tries to come home but is gunned down as Phoenix Steveson makes the tag.

It still was 2–0 but believe it or not Amodi hit two grand slams, drove in a total of 10 and Prep beat Home Federal 14–5 to force a 2nd game. In that game Prep Defeated Home Federal 12-3.
