Brownstown/St. Elmo High School opened the National Trail Conference Baseball Tournament with a 6-3 win over Cowden-Herrick/Beecher City Friday.

The two teams were tied at 1-1 after the first inning and 2-2 after three. CHBC took a 3-2 lead in the top of the fourth but BSE came back to take the lead away with two runs in the bottom of the frame then tacked on single runs in the fifth and sixth for the win.

Lewis Brown and Rocky Himes had two singles each for the winners. Himes knocked in three runs while Brown had two RBI. Wade Ireland had a double.

Nate Philpot threw a two-hitter with three walks and eight strikeouts. The lone hits from CHBC came from Doty and Manley with a single each.
