DAVENPORT — With the American Legion baseball season winding down, games are becoming more intense. Teams have gotten their fair share of games in and now there is more on the line in each game.

Wednesday’s matchup between Geneva and Bruning-Davenport/Shickley had the feel of a district game, with both teams going back-and-forth in a slugfest that saw four home runs.

BDS came from behind to tie the game three times, and in the fifth inning, it finally took the lead on Riley Tegtmeier home run en route to a 11-10 victory.

“What I was most proud about with our kids is being down three times and coming back every time. That was the most impressive thing,” said BDS coach Rod Tegtmeier.
