Like the Mudcats, the Blue Ox will begin regional play this weekend, heading south to Wheaton for the Class C play downs.

Bemidji carries the No. 2 seed from the Norman-Polk League after dropping last Sunday's test at Ada 6-5.

The Ox lost all three meetings with the A's this summer by a combined total of four runs. The previous two came by 5-3 and 2-1 margins.

The regional champ will move to the super section next weekend.

The Mudcats have a shorter trip, opening at Grand Rapids today at 5:30 p.m. against Nashwauk. Duluth and Grand Rapids play the 8:30 p.m. nightcap.

The loser of the second game then battles the winner of the first in another elimination game.

The title game is Sunday noon with a second game, if needed, to follow immediately for the top seed at next weekend's super sectional.
