Early home runs power Brigade to close win against Rattlers, will head to finals


ROSSVILLE (KSNT) – Back-to-back home runs from Cole Breichesen and Collin Chandler to start the game was a pretty good sign for the Brigade as Junction City is headed to the Cowdin Cup finals after beating Rossville 9-8 in game two of the semifinals.

Junction City took an early lead after scoring 3 runs in the first inning, however the Rattlers were able to answer quickly as Danny Mitchell Jr. tied the game up with a 3-run homerun in the bottom of the first.

Breichesen hit his second home run of the day in the 2nd inning to regain the lead for JC, but just like the first, Rossville answered back by scoring a run in the bottom half to tie it.

This game would go back and forth, as it was tied at 8-8, in the 8th inning before Junction City took the lead and sealed the victory.
