A home run can change a game, but a grand slam can blow it wide open. That's what happened Wednesday night for the Jefferson City American Legion Post 5 Seniors.

Jeremy Geist came up with the bases loaded in the top of the second with the Seniors leading 4-2. He rang up four more runs with a blast over the left-field wall to help the Seniors to a 13-2 win in seven innings over Camdenton in the first game of the Senior Legion District Tournament at the American Legion Post 5 Sports Complex.
