— After needing three games to end its first two playoff series this postseason, the Elkhart baseball team made sure it didn’t happen a third time.

The Elks — who are seeking a second-straight trip to the state tournament — rolled past Warren Saturday, 6-0, at Lufkin’s Morris Franks Park. The win came a night after Elkhart topped the Warriors, 5-1, to open the series on Friday.

With the win, Elkhart moves on to the regional semifinals where they will take on second-ranked Salado.

Game 1 is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, with Game 2 set for 2 p.m. Saturday. A third game, if necessary, would begin 30 minutes after the end of Game 2. All games will be played at Franklin High School.
