HALL-DALE 5, TRAIP 4: Brian Allen allowed just two hits in five innings as Hall-Dale edged Traip in a Western C prelim.

Allen left the mound with a 5-1 lead after the third inning, then returned for the sixth with just the one-run advantage and shut down the Rangers with five strikeouts and four walks.
