It will be a busy weekend for Rapid City legion teams as Post 320 hosts the Billings Royals and Post 22 is putting on the Veterans Classic ... the Stars took on the Royals at Pete Lien Field tonight while the Post 22 varsity opened the Veterans Classic with a game against their junior varsity Expos.
And the Royals didn't waste any time jumping on the Stars in this one as they put 10 runs on the board in the first two innings.
Here we are in the second and Billings' Ethan Opp lifts a pitch from Stars reliever John Thorsteson into right field for an out but the sacrifice fly brings in the 10th run of the game.
Thorsteson would coax Billings' Cade Torg into a fielder's choice groundout to short to end the second inning as the Stars try to hang around in this one.
But Billings starter Dann Blanchard was solid as he fields the comebacker from Wyatt Hunt on this play for the easy out in a 1-2-3 third inning.
Billings would go on to win this game 15-0.
