(Walnut) If the Walnut Warriors don’t win tonight it will bring an end to an impressive program history that has featured several big wins and multiple trips to the state tournament.
It’s win or go home for all teams in Class 1A District Baseball tonight but for Walnut there’s even more on the line. Standing in the way of a date in the district finals is a 23-5 Logan-Magnolia team.
Walnut head coach Trey Brix's 15-6 squad will throw their ace Lucas Blum tonight. Blum, a senior, has struck out 127 batters and has a 0.63 ERA. Coach Brix says having Blum on the mound puts the rest of the team at ease.
The winner of this game moves on to the District Final at St. Albert on Saturday where they will oppose either AHST or 5th ranked St. Albert.
