End of the line

Wishek/Linton/Ashley saw its American Legion baseball season come to an end Thursday with a 4-3 loss to Fairmount/Hankinson/Lidgerwood at the Southeast Region tournament in Enderlin.


WLA, which finished at 1-15 overall, fell behind early and came up just short at the end of the game.


Fairmount/Hankinson/Lidgerwood built a 4-0 cushion in the top of the fourth inning, before WLA got on the scoreboard with a single run during its half of the frame.


WLA rallied for two more tallies in the bottom of the seventh, but Fairmount/Hankinson/Lidgerwood hung on to preserve the victory.


Alex Ruff stroked a double and John Beck added a run-scoring single for WLA.
