Legion state tourney update: South and Dimond to meet in title game

The Alaska Legion AA state baseball tournament will be an all-Anchorage affair, as Dimond Post 21 put a hurting on Juneau Post 25 Wednesday at Mulcahy Stadium with an 11-1 semifinal victory in the second-chance loser’s bracket.

The state championship game is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Mulcahy, and will feature Dimond and South Post 4, a team that beat Dimond in a Tuesday semifinal. If Dimond can beat South in that game, then an if-necessary game will be played at 6 p.m.

Dimond’s Jordan Clevenger tossed a complete six-inning game with two hits, six strikeouts and two walks.

The state champion will represent Alaska at the Northwest Regional in Eugene, Oregon.
