West St. Paul, Minnesota

The IS Knights of Fargo, ND claimed the crown of the 35th Annual West St.
Paul Tournament Sunday evening. Their 7-0 win over the Reasnor (Iowa) RPMs
gave the Knights back-to-back crowns. Heading into the title game,
undefeated Reasnor decided that the game would be “winner take all” game, a
“true” championship, instead of the double elim. format used for the
duration of the tourney as they had work committments to honor back home,
as the title tilt began at 9:31 (originally scheduled for 6:30).

In the championship game, Adam Folkard, the young Aussie fresh off a plane
Saturday nite, pitched his second game for IS. Folkard struck out 18 batters.

The third inning saw Lucas Goring lead off with a bunt that was popped
up. Reasnor’s third basemen dove in fair territory, barely missing the
ball, which then went into foul territory. Goring advanced to second, then
to third on a wild pitch and scored on a past ball.

IS added another run the next inning. Tony Kunka led off with a walk, then
with one out scored on Jason Wandler’s triple.

Kunka led off the sixth frame with a double, advanced to third on a ground
out then scored on Wandler’s ground out.

Bob Fleming led off the IS seventh, reaching on an error. Goring bunted
for a single. Then with one out, John Tschida’s double scored Fleming and
Goring. Tschida advanced to third on an error, then scoring on Kunka’s single.

Line scores for the entire weekend will be posted on Monday, with an
announcement of which at Al’s Fastball.
