HUTCHINSON — The Wichita Panthers outlasted McPherson’s Senior American Legion baseball team 7-6 in Post 24’s second game of the day on Friday.

That left McPherson at 1-1 in the Hutchinson Tournament.

Post 24 was down as much as 5-2, pulled within 5-4, but two Panther runs in the final inning proved beneficial as McPherson’s final rally came up short.

Post 24 actually out-hit the Panthers 9-7, with Dylan Werries going 3 for 4. Mikey Saverino added two hits and scored two runs.

Werries took the loss in relief of Raine Reitsma.
