Friday night game (updated with videos)

The Elrosa Saints amateur baseball team is hosting Roscoe tonight. This is an absolutely majestic night! Perfect weather, blue sky. A great crowd too!

Entering the bottom of the third inning, Roscoe has a 3-1 lead.

*Update: heading into the bottom of the sixth, the Saints trail 3-2.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Elrosa pulled in front by a 4-3 score when Matt Schmitz scored on a sacrifice fly-RBI by Ryan Illies.

*Final: Elrosa 10, Roscoe 5.

The Saints improve to 6-2 overall and 4-1 in the Stearns County League. They gear up for a huge border battle rivalry game this Sunday (July 12) at Spring Hill. The Saints and their neighbors to the southeast will do battle beginning at 1:30 p.m. at Chargers Stadium.

Below, here's video from the bottom of the third inning tonight:

In the video, I botched it in a big way after Matt Schmitz hit an RBI-single to right field. I followed the hit all the way out to the outfield, but then on the way back to home plate, I tracked too far left and missed the slide when Jackson Peter scored on two outs to make it a 3-2 game.

Below, here's a 10-plus minute long video from the bottom of the seventh inning, when Elrosa regained the lead for good.

It was terrific to see the B-B-E Jaguars youth baseball program in action today. The 12-U and 10-U Jaguar squads hosted a tournament in Brooten and Belgrade. I'll post some updates and video from that tomorrow.
