Blaine outlasts Mudcats in playoff pitching battle
The Blaine Fusion, the defending Region 6B champions, clinched the first berth at the state tournament Saturday afternoon with a 13-inning 1-0 win over Bemidji's Mudcats.
Bemidji and Hibbing met in the late game for the second state spot and a berth in today's finals.
That winner takes on Blaine at 11 with a second game, if needed, to follow immediately.
