North Platte splits doubleheader against Grand Island
Grand Island rallies late to steal game two
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -
North Platte Legion hosted Grand Island on Wednesday night, splitting the doubleheader.
Bryce Butterfield started game one for the Nationals, pitching well and getting run support early on. North Platte continued their trend of scoring early and often with three runs coming across the plate in the first inning, en route to a 7-1 win.
Game two looked to be in North Platte’s favor after Gus Krebber hit a grand slam to give the Nationals a 6-1 lead in the second inning. Grand Island would rally late in the game, however, and score the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh, coming away with a 7-6 win.
