Askelson Wins It For Montana in 7th
The arm of Billings' Big Sky All-Stars Cole McKenzie was enough to hold the Southern Californians All-Stars from Huntington Beach scoreless for 5+ innings. The bat of Ben Askelson was enough to win the game 1-0 as he put a charge into a hanging curve in the bottom of the 7th inning to enable Billings to walk off with their 3rd win in a row. Of course, 'walk-off' is a euphemism for running and jumping and hugging and screaming. They will wait 'til Saturday and the outcome of Pennsylvania v. Southern California to play for the national championship.
