The Fort Calhoun Senior Legion baseball team added insurance runs during the seventh inning, but still couldn't hold off Springfield on Tuesday night.

The hometown Trojans scored four runs during the bottom half and earned a 9-8 walk-off victory. The Pioneers fell to 2-9 in defeat.

Coach Brandon Wynn's Post 348 squad scored six sixth-inning runs and added to in the seventh. Austin Welchert scored on a passed ball before Joel Fern's RBI knock scored Dillon Dierks to push Fort Calhoun's lead to 8-5 late.

Springfield responded, however, scoring on a pair of Pioneer miscues before clinching the game on a walk-off double.

Post 348 is finishing up its summer season with a North Bend doubleheader Saturday. The first home game starts at 11 a.m.
