Amateur baseball: Wilmont loses heartbreaker at state
MAPLE LAKE -- The winning run crossed the plate on a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth inning, and Wilmont's state Class C amateur baseball tournament run was over Friday after just one game.
Clear Lake defeated the Cardinals 6-5 at Irish Stadium in Maple Lake, ending the southwest Minnesota team's season.
"We definitely had our chances," said Wilmont starting pitcher Justin Saufley. "That's why it stings a little more than in the past."
