    Friday July 28th vs Springfield:  In their first game at the Legion State Tournament Pine Island played Springfield in Paynesville.  In a well pitched game on both sides Springfield edged Pine Island by a score of 2-0.  Brady Braaten went the distance for Pine Island, allowing only a pair of runs on eight hits.  Pine Island loaded the bases with no outs in both the 6th and the 7th innings but was unable to capitalize on the scoring opportunities.  Game highlights

    Saturday July 29th vs BOLD:  In their 2nd game Pine Island went up against BOLD in Spicer.  Keagan Majerus started on the hill for Pine Island.  This game was a 1-1 tie until the 4th inning.  Once again Pine Island threatened multiple times in the early innings with runners in scoring position but plated only one run.  BOLD took a 2-1 lead with one run in the the 4th inning and went on to win 6-1.  Summary     Game highlights

    Pine Island finishes their tournament run with a couple of tough losses in the state tournament.  Congratulatons on a fantastic season young men!  You represented the Pine Island Community very well!
