With a trio of one-run games last weekend in the Capital City Invitational, getting focused could have been an issue Tuesday for the Helias Crusasders.

An early eight-run inning showed that it wasn't.

"We were hoping to not have a letdown," Helias coach Chris Wyrick said after the Crusaders blanked the Moberly Spartans 10-0 in a game halted by the run-rule in the bottom of the sixth inning at the American Legion Post 5 Sports Complex.
