Tournament Results from June 10-12
2011 Tigertown Classic Summary: (From Brett Kruschke)
The Marshall A's became back-to-back champions of the Tigertown Classic tourney in Belle Plaine this weekend, edging out the hometown Tigers who were making their first appearance in the championship game in the tournament's 13-year history. Marshall used a 3-run 5th - highlighted by a 2-run double from Tyler Flattum - to pull out the victory. Chace Pollack, coming in from shortstop after an injury to starter Ben Bartling, worked four scoreless innings of relief to earn the win.
The Upsala Blue Jays won the Consolation bracket and more importantly, the rights to the travelling trophy - Chief Wannawin - in a grudge match battle with Freeport.

Rosco Tournament in Bemidji: (From the Bemidji Pioneer)
Mayville and the Bemidji Mudcats emerged unbeaten at the 11th annual Rosco Invitational Sunday.
Under the revised format, caused by Blackduck unable to field a team, no championship type meet was able to be staged with the four visiting teams guaranteed three games. To accommodate them, Bemidji was limited to just two.
Mayville emerged 3-0 and Bemidji 2-0 with Ada’s defending champs 2-1, Felton 1-2 and Albertville 0-3.
Bemidji won its two games Saturday, overcoming Felton 4-2 and shading Albertville 1-0. In between Mayville blanked Ada 10-0 in a five-inning contest. It closed the day with a 5-2 victory over Felton.
In Sunday’s play, Ada beat Albertville 7-1, Mayville stopped Albertville 7-5 and Ada closed with a 7-1 decision over Felton.
Pitching was the strong suit of the meet with only one losing team managing more than two runs.
Ada won the final on a one-hitter scoring twice in the first and second and closing with three in the seventh.
