AMMON â€” A night after watching a late comeback fall short, the Shelley Russets American Legion baseball team retook the field of Hillcrest High School for day two of the Idaho Falls tournament.
While the Russets did a lot of things right during their two games, one thing came back to bite them every time, and those were walks.
AMMON â€” With the bases loaded and two outs and the game tied 8-8, Shelley's Konnor Gilstrap stepped to the plate looking to drive in the go-ahead run.
After working a 2-0 count, Gilstrap took a hack at a fastball that appeared to be right down the middle. But instead of depositing the ball into the outfield for a hit, Gilstrap popped out to the first baseman to end the inning.
