The Dakota Ridge Eagles were sky high entering the top of the seventh inning, having come back from a seven-run deficit to take the lead against Ralston Valley.
But after the game, they couldn’t have been lower as Ralston Valley catcher Nick McCasky hit a two-run home run off reliever A.J. Valerio to give the Mustangs a 9-8 win on May 4 at Dakota Ridge High School.
“I just left it up. It was a bad pitch,” Valerio said.
