Ottumwa 13-year-old Babe Ruth squad wins MWP opener

FOUNTAIN, Colo. — Ottumwa pounded North Platte, Neb., on Friday 11-2 to earn a win in their opening game at the 13-year-old Midwest Plains Regional Babe Ruth Tournament.

Ottumwa scored four runs in the third on a two-run double by Dillon Berg, a walk by Alec Hensley, and an RBI single by Tyler Ward.

It was a good day at the plate for Ottumwa’s Torell Washington. Washington went 3-4, drove in one and scored two runs. He singled in the first and third innings and tripled in the fourth inning.

North Platte, Neb., couldn’t get anything going as long as Jarhett VanEnglenhoven was on the mound. VanEnglenhoven gave up just one hit, allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out one during his four innings of work.

North Platte’s Kaden Wroot went 2-3 and scored one run. He singled in the fourth inning and doubled in the seventh inning.

Ottumwa is back in action this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. The local youth squad was still awaiting its second opponent in the regional tournament, which was being determined between the winner of the fourth and final opening game on Friday between Hi Tower, Minn., and host squad Fountain, Colo. Hi Tower had a 1-0 lead early in the game after scoring a first-inning run as the Courier went to press.

Ottumwa 15-year-old’s regional opener rained out

Only one game at the 15-year-old Midwest Plains Babe Ruth regional tournament was able to get in as rain caused Hi Tower, Minn., and Wellington, Kan., to duck showers throughout the opening game of the day. Hi Tower finally put away an 11-1 win in a game that took over five hours to complete due to off-and-on delays due to the weather before the remaining three games of the opening day were called off.
