Game updates from Section 6A

Game updates will be posted here from this afternoon's elimination game of the Section 6A baseball tournament. The B-B-E Jaguars baseball team faces Parkers Prairie at 2:30 p.m., and the game will be aired on Smooth Magic 107 FM of Glenwood.

*Update: the Jaguars built a 6-0 lead going into the sixth inning. The Panthers scored twice and now trail 6-3 with bases loaded on one out.

*Update: the Jaguars now trail 8-6 heading into the top of the seventh inning. They are three outs away from either extending the game to the bottom of the seventh or seeing their season end.

*Update!! the Jaguars scored two runs in the top of the seventh inning to keep their season alive! They left two stranded and now are set to play the best defense of the year and push the game to extra innings.

From the bottom of the seventh...absolutely amazing...the coaching staff of Parkers Prairie talked the umpires into calling a balk call. The game-winning run is at second base, another runner is on first and the Jaguars have earned just one out. The next batter hit a line shot straight to left-fielder Thaniel Cebulla for a pop fly and the second out.

*Final score: Parkers Prairie 9, B-B-E 8 in regulation innings. Parkers Prairie (16-9) advances to the Section 6A championship series for the third straight year. They face New York Mills (19-3) and will have to beat the Eagles tonight to get another shot at them tomorrow, as tonight's game will be another elimination game.

B-B-E finishes the year 12-12 overall.

Below is video from the Border West game in Morris:

Now all that's left for spring sports are the three state golfers and also Kyle Felling heading to the state track and field meet.

Also, congratulations to the Paynesville Area Bulldogs baseball team (19-4) as they advance to the Class 2A state tournament. They went 1-1 in the Section 3AA championship series against Luverne, handing them the section title.
