After going 3-0 in pool play, the Hays Eagles Legion baseball team earned the No. 3 seed in the championship bracket, then picked up an 8-3 win against Longmont-Erie on Saturday night in the quarterfinals of the Wild West Festival Tournament.

Kade Parker picked up a complete-game victory, but the Eagles committed five errors, helping Erie put up three runs on five hits.

Parker (2-3) struck out seven and walked one, allowing one earned run.

Hays (21-6) is set to play in today’s 1 p.m. semifinal at HHS Field. If the Eagles win, they will play for the title at 5 p.m. at Larks Park.

Trenton Henningsen finished 3 for 3 with two runs scored and one driven in, while Jake Sedbrook was 2 for 3 and drove in three runs. Connor Rule and Layne Downing each collected a pair of hits.

The Eagles, behind a shutout for starter Brady Bieker, defeated the Colorado Baseball Academy, 9-0 in five innings, to move to 3-0 in pool play Saturday morning.

The Eagles needed some late heroics from Downing and Cole Schumacher to overtake Rock Creek in eight innings in their tournament opener Friday.

Hays had a 2-0 lead before an error-laden fourth inning helped Rock Creek put up four runs and take the lead.

Starter Kaden Rohr struggled to get out of the fourth as Rock Creek scored its four runs on just one hit with two Eagle errors.

Then, trailing 4-2, Hays battled back in the bottom of the seventh.

Schumacher, who had the hot hand Friday, led off the inning with a single, then eventually came home on a two-RBI single by Downing that tied the game.

Downing came in and recorded the final out of the top half of the eighth inning, and ended up with the victory.

With the game tied, Marcus Altman led off the eighth by reaching on an error at second base. Then, Sedbrook reached on an error, but the Eagles got two quick outs.

With two outs, Schumacher hit a laser to center field, scoring Altman from second base to secure the Eagles' win.

Schumacher finished the game 3 for 4 with a run scored and one driven in. Parker was 2 for 3, and Downing 2 for 4 with two runs driven in.

Rohr pitched 7.2 innings after a rough defensive fourth. He gave up four runs (none earned) on two hits with seven strikeouts and three walks.

Hays ended Friday's late game against Monument, Colo., via the mercy rule. The Eagles, led by Schumacher at 2 for 3 with three RBIs, scored two runs in the third and six in the fourth to win 8-0. The game ended after five innings.

Downing (6-0) pitched all five innings.

He gave up three hits with five strikeouts and two walks for his second victory of the day. Connor Rule finished 2 for 3 with an RBI, while Parker was 2 for 3 with a run scored.

In the six-run fourth, Schumacher had a two-RBI single, and Zack Legleiter had an RBI double.

After the tournament wraps up today, Hays heads to Kansas City on Wednesday for a five-day tournament.
