MAAA Baseball Matchup Heads To KREI With West County Hosting Bismarck

(Leadwood) An MAAA conference matchup hits the Regional Radio airwaves Tuesday afternoon when Bismarck and West County face-off on AM 800 KREI.

The Indians have a record of 5-1-1, with the tie coming from a game against Steelville reaching a time limit. Since then, Bismarck is on a three-game win streak which includes a first-place finish in their own tournament and winning the last two games by a combined 31-14.

Indians coach Chris Hayes says his guys have been locked in at the plate.

Bismarck’s hottest bats are from sophomore Garrett Mork and junior Gavin Butery hitting .600 and .550, respectively.

That lineup will be tested against West County senior J.D. Whitter, who may be even hotter. Whitter threw a no-hitter in a 4-0 win against Grandview last Thursday striking out 16 in the process and he helped himself at the plate, too, going 3-for-4 with a home run.

Bulldogs coach Bobby Simily says he’s good to make back-to-back starts.
