The Angels started their Hi-10 League playoff push Friday against Audubon, with games being played over the weekend to decide which teams will make it to the Region 14C playoffs.

DL co-manager and rightfielder Phil Kirchner singled in relief pitcher/shortstop Reed Oistad from second base for the walk-off win.

Oistad picked up the win, as well, after pitching the final two innings, keeping the Spartans scoreless.

Kirchner had a solo homerun in the fifth, while T.J. Manning recorded his first-career amateur baseball homer, as well.

Those who had two hits apiece included Chris Gilson, Kirchner, Doug Dickey, Bryan Buhr and Manning.

Brandon Johnson started the game on the mound for the Angels and was relieved by Nick Polejewski in the fourth. Chris Gilson also saw action with two innings pitched.
