Vernon on Monday after Mt. Vernon beat the Express on Sunday.
    Aviston (17-6) also took down Centralia and Mt. Vernon on Saturday.  They advance to the Fifth Division Tournament this weekend in Fairfield.
    Aviston 9, Mt. Vernon 7:  The Express hung on for a nerve-wracking win over Mt. Vernon on Monday night.
    Mt. Vernon scored a pair of unearned runs in the top of the first inning before the Express scored the next six runs to take the lead for good.
    Brett Goestenkors got the Express on the board with a 2-out single to score Calvin Rakers to get the Express within 2-1 after one inning.
    Caydn Schuchman singled in the second inning and was chased home on a double from Logan Hamilton to start a 5-run rally.  Calvin Rakers and Camden Wempe each reached base to load the bases.
    Drew Dant cleared the bases with a smash to left-center field to blow the game open at 5-2.  Goestenkors came up clutch again with a 2-out single to score Dant as the lead moved to 6-2.

    The only other guarantee is their opponent will be St. Jacob who sits in last place with an 0-12 record.
    All other regular-season standings are subject to change next weekend.  Currently, Trenton and Aviston are tied for second place with 9-4 records while Central is currently 8-5 in fourth place.
    Germantown sits in fifth place with a 7-5 record while Beckemeyer is 4-8 and Breese is 3-10.
    Centralia 9, Germantown 5:  The Buds earned a split with their second game win on the road on Sunday.
    Most of the scoring came in the first three innings where both teams scored once in the first inning before the Buds outscored the Reds 4-1 in the second inning to take the lead for good.
    The Buds got to Germantown starter Trevor Kohrmann who took the loss as he allowed four earned runs on six hits, three walks and two punch outs.
    Brandon Repking came on in relief of Centralia starter John Frech.  Repking was the winning pitcher by going 3-2/3 innings where he allowed just one hit and two walks.
    Centralia outhit the Reds 10-7 with DJ Session having a strong effort by going 4-for-4 with four singles with two runs batted in.  Quincy Aldrich had two hits while Cody Jansen scored three times.
    Alec Kuhl had a homer for the Reds and was 2-for-3 with two RBIs and one run scored.  Brock Hill added a triple, two stolen bases, a single, one run scored and two batted in during the loss.
    After Hill and Session exchanged RBI singles in the first inning, the Reds struck with Kuhl’s homer to lead 2-1.
    Aldrich answered in the bottom of the frame for the Buds with a 2-run double in front of a 2-RBI single from Todd Bauer that gave them the lead at 5-2.
