Big rally sends E-National past JC in state 13s


Elizabethton National rallied for five runs in the last of the seventh to take a 9-8 victory over Johnson City on Thursday night at Elizabethton High School in the Junior Babe Ruth 13-year-old tournament.
Johnson City defeated Smokey Mountain in extra innings 8-7 in the opener and then had to turn around and play against the Nationals after a short rain delay.
“Johnson City had to be a little tired at this point,” pointed out Elizabethton manager Rick Walters. “This was a tough game and our kids responded well. We never thought we were out of it.”
