FPB splits with Aces in doubleheader

Five Points Bank's Sam Reimer bats against Las Vegas Aces
Friday at Duncan Field.

While on its way to Omaha for the College World Series, the Las Vegas Aces senior American Legion baseball team made a stop in Hastings to play Five Points Bank.

Hastings dropped game one 7-2 but proved that the house doesn't always win, beating the Aces 4-1 in the nightcap.

"We told the guys after game one and told them, 'If we have an identity right now... it's probably our pitching and our defense,' " said FPB head coach Russ Kindig. "We just told them to relax and have fun... If we keep playing like that and put things together and get some timely hits we're going to win some baseball games. We just showed it right there."
