Post 641 remains undefeated

The Plato American Legion Post 641 baseball team entered this week with a 3-0 record after winning its first two home games of the summer last week.

First up, Plato improved to 2-0 against Southwest by winning for the second time in as many games against its Cologne-based rival, 8-3, on Wednesday, June 14, at Bluejay Stadium.

After topping Southwest 1-0 in the season opener, Plato scored a pair of runs in its first turn at the plate.

Bruins top New Germany

The Brownton Bruins salvaged an otherwise rough stretch last week by winning 10-4 at New Germany on Sunday, June 18.

Brownton’s win came on the heels of midweek home losses to New Ulm and Young America as the Bruins entered this week with a 7-7 overall record.

Grant Baumetz all-but clinched Sunday’s with a pinch-hit three-RBI triple in the ninth inning, driving home Josh Dietz, Ryan Grams and Deryk Randt. Six other Bruin players logged one RBI each in the game.

Brewers win Atwater Days Tournament

One year after finishing last, the Glencoe Brewers bashed their way to the championship of the Atwater Days Tournament last weekend, thumping teams from Minneapolis and Litchfield.

The wins pushed the Brewers three games above the .500 mark at 8-5 heading into Friday night’s Glencoe Days game against Brownton.

Last week’s slate of games opened with the Brewers suffering a tough loss against Waconia at Vollmer Field on Wednesday, June 14.

Blue Jays return home this week

After playing on the road for more than six weeks, the Plato Blue Jays are scheduled to migrate home this weekend.

Plato, which has not graced Bluejay Stadium since topping St. Boni 13-0 in the season opener on May 7, is slated to host Young America at 5 p.m. Sunday.

 The contest begins a stretch that sees the Blue Jays at home for seven of the final 10 games of the regular season. Plato also is tabbed to host Brownton on Wednesday, June 28.
