The Bruins surround teammate Jon Kleespies after the freshman outfielder hit a game-winning single to beat the Douglas Trojans, 6-5.
A word of advice to Far West League baseball teams — if Jon Kleespies comes to the plate with the game on the line, just walk him.
For the second time in four games, the Bruins outfielder stepped to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning with a chance to complete another dramatic comeback. And for the second time in four games, Kleespies delivered.

The Brookings-Harbor Bruins baseball team has been firing on all cylinders recently — crushing Illinois Valley in a doubleheader sweep on Saturday then splitting a twin bill with the 10th-ranked Hidden Valley Mustangs on Tuesday, including one of the most amazing comebacks in BHHS baseball history.
It’s been a good start to the season for the Brookings-Harbor track and field female throwers. After Saturday’s performance at the Mr. Bulldog Invitational at North Bend High School, the Lady Bruins appear to be getting better.
Kia Collins, Chantelle Nelson and Makayla Burger finished 1-2-3, respectively, in the girls discus event.
