VFW: Wietzma lifts Worthington in dramatic fashion

LENNOX, S.D. -- Trevor Wietzma's walk-off three-run home run dramatically won the consolation championship of the Team Chase Benefit Tournament for the Worthington VFW baseball team over the weekend.

Worthington trailed Alcester, S.D., 2-1 entering the bottom of the seventh inning when Carson Hagen led off with a single and Roque Soto doubled to put runners on second and third, bringing up Wietzma, who slugged his second homer of the season to win the game.

Luke Drooger was the winning pitcher, going seven innings and allowing three hits. He walked three and struck out seven.

In their first two games, Worthington lost to Groton, S.D., 10-0 in six innings and beat Lennox, S.D., 11-1 in four innings.
