The Des Moines East Scarlets continued their quest for a ticket to state Monday. East hasn’t played in the showcase tourney since 1998.
#7 Scarlets were on the road at Roosevelt.
East were off and running early. An early steal by Malique Ziegler makes him the single season stolen base leader at East with 34 and counting.
Robert Hansen does his job in the first with a fly to right. It’s caught, but it’s deep enough for Ziegler to trot home. 1-0 Scarlets.
More in the 3rd. Chino Aalcala, right back up the middle. Ziegler scores again.
East goes on to win its 25th game, 9-1.
