Effingham Asphalt and Tingley Insurance Agency picked up victories in the Babe Ruth Prep League Baseball Tournament Monday evening at Evergreen Hollow Park and will now meet for the championship.

Taylor Law took a first inning one-run lead over Effingham Asphalt in the opening game. But Asphalt came back to knot the score at 1-1 in the top of the second. The two teams went scoreless through two innings before Asphalt added to its lead with two in the fifth. Taylor Law made a comeback bid in the bottom of the sixth but scored only one run.

Grant Wolf pitched a one-hitter for the win. Chris Cole had the only extra base hit of the game with a double and drove in a run for Asphalt.

In the second contest, Tingley Insurance edged out to a 2-1 first inning lead. JCR Carpentry tied the score in the top of the second but Tingley came back with two runs to regain the lead. JCR then tallied three runs in the top of the third for a 5-4 lead. Tingley, however, bounced right back to tie the score in the bottom of the frame then produced the winning runs for a 7-5 victory in the fifth. Josh Overbeck picked up the pitching win while Lane Koenig garnered the save.

Derek Moschenrose had three singles and drove in two runs for the winners. Koenig had a double while Overbeck had two singles and an RBI. Cory Osborn led JCR with a single and a triple.
