Keota Baseball Puts Up Fight v. Monte

6-25 Keota 0, North Mahaska 13

After giving up three runs in the top of the first inning to the Braves, Keota stormed back with a vengeance and took the lead, temporarily. RBI singles by Nate Sieren, Luke Greiner and Dakota Slaughter plated three runs for the Eagles, and a fielder’s choice by John Mather added another run, giving the Eagles four in the frame.
