Elko edges Austin at state tourney

The Elko Express baseball team advanced in state baseball play last weekend, defeating the Austin Blue Sox, 2-1, in a game played Saturday at Glencoe. The game was postponed by rain from Thursday.

Lefthander Brian Muell was the winning pitcher but had help from Josh Roiger, another lefthander, who pitched the last two innings and earned the save.

Roiger came on with two runners in the eighth and got one out, then hit a batter to load the bases.
