From time to time it is how you start out as an alternative of how you finish. 

Oak Grove Submit 379 figured out that lesson the difficult way on Friday dropping a pair of game titles in the remaining day of pool play in the American Legion Wooden Bat Invitational held at Concealed Valley Park. 

In the opening game, a late rally came up brief in a 3-2 decline to Lincoln (Neb.) Judds Brothers Construction in a match that made the decision the champion in pool D. 

Judds Brothers scored all a few operates in the initial inning and then held off a late charge by Oak Grove in the last inning to clinch the title with a 4- pool engage in mark and earn a berth into Saturday’s quarterfinals. 

Oak Grove yielded 6 early runs and couldn’t get better in the next game of the working day, falling 11-2 to the Omaha (Neb.) Submit 211 PDG Storm. 

Oak Grove Post 379's Brody Armstrong (12) reacts after striking out in an 11-2 loss to the Omaha (Neb.) Post 211 PSG Storm in an American Legion Wood Bat Invitational game Thursday. Oak Grove went on to an 11-2 loss.

Just after a 2- commence to the event, the two straight losses meant Oak Grove (17-8-1) fell into the consolation portion of the bracket and will await to see who it plays in the crossover part of the event Saturday (pending the weather conditions). 

In the 3-2 loss to Judds Brothers, a trio of free of charge passes to open up the top rated of the very first inning grew to become the downfall for Oak Grove.
