By Ray Hamill — Bode Joyner’s big day at the plate highlighted a successful return to action for the Humboldt Eagles 19U American Legion baseball team on Friday.

Joyner finished 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBIs to lead the Eagles to a 12-2 win over the NorCal Nationals in game two of a doubleheader, after they had taken the opener 5-0.

“Bode Joyner had a monster game,” Eagles head coach Matt Tomlin said. “He hit the heck out of the ball.”
