Southeast South Dakota Classic June 15 through 16

East's lone action of the week came right at home in Sioux Falls with the Southeast South Dakota Classic. The team began play in the tournament on June 15 by facing Huron, in which East would earn a 13-1 win. The scoring margin was close between the two teams until East broke out for 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Gage Gasca and Isaac Pullen both recorded Triples as Pullen pitched the length of the game while striking out eight and giving up just two hits.

Later that night, East faced Grand Forks. East was not as successful as they took an 11-7 loss. East could not keep up with the opposing offense as Grand Forks scored in every inning they came to the plate.

East concluded the weekend on June 16 with a 14-1 forgettable loss against Harrisburg. Thomas Messenbrink III's triple was one of the four East hits in the loss.
