Saints vs. Eagles

Matt Middendorf scored for Elrosa in the bottom of the second inning.

The Elite State 8 amateur baseball tournament is underway in Elrosa! This is the first such event held at Saints Field, and it will bring some outstanding games to town.

In the opener tonight, the Elrosa Saints and Regal Eagles resumed their rivalry with an extra-innings battle that went down to the wire. After the Saints posted an early 6-0 lead through six innings, the Eagles came back to tie it at 6-6 with a grand slam home run in the top of the fourth. With tournament games lasting seven innings, this one went past that, with the game-winning run coming in the top of the ninth for Regal. Final score: Regal 7, Elrosa 6 (nine innings).

The Saints play next at 4 o'clock on Saturday against the loser of the Foley vs. Hutchinson game. That contest takes place at noon on Saturday.

Here's action from the bottom of the third inning:

In the night cap in Elrosa tonight, Raymond defeated Beaudreau 4-0. Raymond plays at 6 p.m. on Saturday against the winner of the Cold Spring vs. Delano game. Beaudreau plays at 2 p.m. against the loser of the Cold Spring vs. Delano game.

Cold Spring vs. Delano kicks off action on Saturday, with that game starting at 10 a.m.
