The North Platte First National Bank Juniors swept a doubleheader with Grand Island Tom Dinsdale Wednesday, 4-1 and 9-6 at Bill Wood Field.
The two wins were the last games of the regular season for the Juniors, who are 26-15 on the season.
Tom Dinsdale, the second Juniors team in Grand Island, took a 1-0 lead in the first game as Michael Buhrman grounded into a double play with no one out in the first inning.
But North Platte answered back in the second inning. With one out, Ethan Mercer hit a single just over the infield to tie it and then with two outs, Jaylan Ruffin singled to left field to put the First Nationals on top.
The Nationals scored two more runs the rest of the way. In the third inning, Tate Janas hit a line drive to right that made it 3-1 and two innings later, Bryce Butterfield reached on an error to make it a three-run game.
Pitcher Sam Malsbury took it from there, throwing six scoreless innings after giving up the one in the first to get the complete game victory.
In the second game, Dinsdale jumped ahead with five runs in the first inning. North Platte chipped away at the lead in the bottom of the first before turning the tables in the second inning.
The second inning rally began when Malsbury hit a single into right to make it 5-3 and then Carter Johnson tied it with a two-run single to left.
Dominic Bardales came in for pitcher Jackson Hansen right afterward. But the First Nationals took the lead on a single by Jeremiah Seamann.
Dinsdale tied the game in the fifth. Against Will Coe, who relieved starter Trey Barker, Elliot Gomez got an RBI bloop single to right that knotted it up at 6-6.
But North Platte quickly regained the lead in the bottom of the fifth. With one out, Cody Wright hit a double to left that gave the Nationals the lead and he scored himself as Dinsdale threw the ball away, making it 8-6.
An inning later, Wright added to the lead with a two-out single to left that gave the First Nationals a three-run lead. Coe then shut Dinsdale down in the seventh to complete the sweep.
