Baseball playoffs

The B-B-E Jaguars baseball team came back from a poor performance in their first game today and wiped out New York Mills in an 10-0, five-inning win to keep their season alive. The Jaguars (12-10) continue play in the elimination bracket next Tuesday at Minnewaska.  *Update: the opponent will be Hancock (12-9) at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6. If the Jaguars win, they have another elimination game that same day at Minnewaska against the winner of Parkers Prairie vs. Hillcrest Lutheran Academy.

Brandon/Evansville pulled off a huge upset win by defeating top-ranked Parkers Prairie 5-4 in a winner's bracket game tonight. The Panthers were 18-2 going into the game.

I just saw that No. 2-ranked BOLD (19-3) was defeated by Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City (15-8) by a 6-4 score in a winner's bracket game in the Section 2A tournament today.
