Elko Express qualifies for State Class B Tournament

The Elko Express baseball team qualified for the State Class B Tournament Monday, winning its second straight game in a four-team Region 5B double-elimination playoff being played at Elko.

In its first game on Sunday, Elko defeated Savage, 3-2.

On Monday night the Express downed Burnsville in eight innings, 10-0, to gain a berth in the State Class B tourney.

Glenn Parker pitched a two-hitter against Burnsville. Elko had 13 hits with Corey Grisim batting five for five.

The seeding game for the state tourney will be tonight (Thursday) at Elko at 8 p.m.

Elko won the State Class C Tournament last season, which meant they had to move up to Class B play this year. The Express will play in the state tourney on Thursday, Aug. 20 at Arlington. Game time will be either 6 p.m. or 8:30 p.m., depending on the result of the region final.
