SALINA — Chanute and Andover became the first teams eliminated from the Class A American Legion State Baseball Tournament today at Dean Evans Stadium.

Doniphan County, which lost 9-2 to McPherson on Tuesday, stayed alive with an 11-3 bounce-back victory over Chanute, while the host Salina Hawks will still thrill the home crowd as it defeated last year’s runner-up, Andover, 12-9.

Two games remain on today’s docket. McPherson plays the 6 p.m. game against Paola, while Atchison and Arkansas City tangle at 8:30.
