Upsala/Swanville (US) Post 350’s legion baseball team earned a win in its season opener at Holdingford, June 11.
US won the District 6 game 7-3, thanks in large part to Austin Johnson’s offensive game.
Johnson had a pair of hits, two RBIs and two runs scored in the game.
Justin Cichon added a pair of hits, an RBI and a run.
Myron Ripplinger earned the win on the hill by pitching the first three innings in shutout fashion, striking out five.
US also played at Browerville, Thursday, but results were unavailable by press time. The same goes for Holdingford, who played at Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa.
Both teams will play Monday. US plays at St. Augusta, and Holdingford hosts Kimball.
