Jackson Turner – No. 5 hitter for the Gresham Minors all-star team – was fine with the result of his first plate appearance in the District 2 championship game against Barlow. He drew a walk and came around to score, but he was there to hit. So when Gresham batted around and Turner came up for the second time in the inning, he let loose and had some fun.

Turner laced a line drive over the left-field fence for a grand slam, capping a 12-run first inning. Gresham kept the scoring coming and rolled to a 19-2 win in four innings to capture the district title.
