Brewers sweep Dutchmen, advance to regional

For the second consecutive year, the Glencoe Brewers have advanced to the Region 7C Tournament via a sweep of New Germany during last week’s play-in series.
With two straight wins over the Dutchmen, the Brewers punched their ticket for the regional bracket for the seventh time in the past nine seasons.
Glencoe opened the series with a come-from-behind 9-3 defeat of New Germany at Vollmer Field on Wednesday, July 27, and then finished off the Dutchmen two nights later with a 3-1 victory over the Dutchmen’s adopted home field in Waconia.
The Brewers found themselves trailing New Germany by scores of 1-0 and 3-1 in Game One, before coming up big with four runs in both the seventh and eighth innings to turn a close game into a near-rout.
Tristan Weber drove home nearly half of his team’s runs with a pair of two-RBI singles as part of a 2-for-4 night at the plate. Tyler Chap went 4-for-5 with one RBI, while Gannon Jordahl scored three runs.
