The Hastings Five Points Bank American Legion baseball team entered its Cornhusker League doubleheader Tuesday against North Platte First Nationals on a roll after winning the Ralston wood bat tournament.
Tuesday night, FPB players Jamison Cockrell and Brady Staton overcome some past struggles and also got on a roll.
Cockrell finished the night with four hits, four runs and two RBIs, while Staton delivered a critical three RBI double in the second game to help Hastings sweep the series 6-1 and 8-4 to improve to 12-7 overall and 7-1 in the league.
"(Jamison) didn't play hardly at all over the weekend. He was really struggling and his bat hadn't been there. He was a great teammate on the bench over the weekend. He stepped up tonight and really filled a hole for us," said FPB head coach Russ Kindig. "(Brady) is another guy who hasn't played for us a lot this year — he's had some arm problems — and he stepped in and did a great job for us tonight."
