With high expectations as a top seed in the state tournament, the Helper American Legion baseball team wasted no time in getting off to a fast start with a 13-1 win over host Logan on Saturday evening.

Helper took an early 4-0 lead in the first inning and Brandon Oliver pitched a complete game keeping the Logan offense at bay in the five inning mercy rule win.

Behind strong pitching and defense, the Helper offense added runs in every inning including a four-run top of the fourth inning which was highlighted by a Jaren McCourt two-run home run over the center field wall that put Helper up 7-1.

Logan loaded the bases in the bottom of the second with one out, but Oliver pitched out of the jam allowing one run to score on an RBI ground out. Oliver seemed to get stronger as the game went on as he struck out two Logan batters in the fifth inning to collect the victory for Helper.

With the win, Helper advances to face the winner of Weber/West on Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. at Providence High School.

See Tuesday's edition of the Sun Advocate for more information and pictures of Helper's win over Logan.
