Regal defeated O'Hara's 16-6, on Saturday in the first round of the Region 7B Amateur Baseball Tournament, to move just one game away from the state tournament.
Mike Beier (pictured right) started and got his eighth win of the season for Regal. Beier went five innings before giving way to Tim Haines in the sixth, and Wade Von Eschen closed it out in the seventh and eighth.
Mike Tangen and Jeff Deming homered for Regal in the game. Brad Lieser added three hits and four RBIs for Regal in the game.
Regal started the game off with three runs in the bottom of the first inning. Mike Beier was hit by a pitch to lead off the game, Tangen, Ron Fuchs, and Haines all had RBI doubles.
This gave Regal a big lead to start the game and it really kept O'Hara's out of the game.
After adding one run in both the second and third innings, Regal came back by scoring four runs in the fifth.
Tangen led off with a solo homer. With two down Deming was hit by a pitch and scored when Lieser doubled. After the big rally by Regal the score was 9-3.
O'Hara's tried to make it a game by scoring three runs in the top of the sixth, but that didn't last long as Regal came right back with five in the bottom of the sixth.
Lieser drove in two with his third hit of the game to make the score 14-6.
Regal will face Cold Spring tonight (Wednesday) at 7:30 p.m., with the winner advancing to the state tournament held in Marshall and Granite Falls.
