HS State Baseball: Van Buren Stuns Don Bosco
By Josh Christensen, TV9 Sports
DES MOINES, Iowa - Victory was almost near for the Don Bosco baseball team on Saturday in the state tournament.
The Dons had a 5-2 lead over Van Buren going into the bottom of the seventh inning. All they needed was three outs to advance, but Van Buren had other plans scoring five runs to tie the game.
It went into extras. In the bottom of the eighth, Van Buren had the bases loaded. Robert Barker ended up getting hit by a pitch, the winning run would score and the Warriors would shock the Dons winning 6-5 in eight innings.
