Plato remains alive in Legion playoffs

The Plato American Legion Post 641 baseball team is still alive in the midst of the Division II, Third District playoffs, having won their first two tournament games on Saturday, July 16, before coming up short against Watertown the next day.

Plato did not give up a single run on Saturday, blanking Sibley East 10-0 in the district opener before shutting out Kenyon 3-0 in the second round to forge a meeting with Watertown.

Post 641 took the early edge after leadoff batter Teddy Petersen reached on an error and later scored on another error to put Plato up 1-0.

Brewers lose twice as regular season nears end

A pair of losses last week – one in league play, one out of it – dropped the Glencoe Brewers to 13-11 overall on the season.

Glencoe, playing without a number of its regulars due to the American Legion playoffs and other commitments, came up on the short side of a 13-10 slugfest at Bird Island on Wednesday, July 13, before being blanked 9-0 by Crow River Valley League (CRVL) rival Green Isle at Vollmer Field on Sunday, July 17.

Blue Jays clinch top regional seed

It has been a long time since the Plato Blue Jays have tasted defeat – nearly two months, to be exact.

Plato clinched the Crow River Valley League (CRVL) regular-season championship and top seed in the coming Region 7C playoffs last week with its 15th and 16th consecutive victories, coupled with Green Isle’s loss to Waconia on Thursday, July 14.

Bruins split pair of CRVL matchups

The Brownton Bruins split a pair of matchups in Crow River Valley League play last week, falling 6-0 to visiting Plato on Friday, July 15, before winning 7-3 at Young America two days later.

Brownton managed just five hits against the visiting Blue Jays, who clinched both the CRVL title and top seed in Region 7C with the win. Individual statistics were not made available.

However, the Bruins bounced back to put away the host Cardinals on Sunday, July 17, with Nick Heller blasting a grand slam to break a 3-3 deadlock in the top of the 10th inning.
