BEMIDJI - Bemidji, the top seed in the Section 8-3A baseball playoffs, will play No. 4 St. Michael-Albertville 11 a.m. Saturday in St. Cloud in its first game of the section's final four.
Originally scheduled for a noon start, the game was advanced an hour to satisfy the demands of the St. Cloud River Bats of the North-woods League who have a game scheduled for Saturday night.
Saturday's other final-four opener sees St. Cloud Apollo facing Rocori. Apollo, the No. 2 seed in the section, nipped Big Lake 4-3 Monday while Rocori, the third seed, stopped Sartell.
St. Michael advanced with a 3-2 win over Alexandria.
The Lumberjacks, 20-1, will also play at 2 p.m. Saturday. If they defeat St. Michael-Albertville the Jacks will tangle with the Apollo-Rocori survivor in the winner's bracket final. A loss to St. Michael-Albertville would drop BHS into the loser's bracket and an elimination game against the Apollo-Rocori loser.
