SAINTS SEASON ENDS WITH LOSS TO MUSKEGON

 

      The Manistee Saints 2018 baseball season ended at the National Amateur Baseball

Federation Regional Tournament on Friday when they were defeated by the Muskegon Blue Jays

11-0. The Blue Jays dominated the game allowing the Saints just one base hit. 

       Earlier in the day, in the completion of a rain suspended game from Thursday, the Saints

offense came alive, scoring 8 runs in the final 2 innings to defeat the Michigan Area Braves 13-7.

Nick Brzezinski paced a 14 hit Saints attack going 4 for 5 with a home run.           

      The Saints finished a very successful season winning 22 games and finishing in 2nd place

in the Great Lakes UBL, runners-up to the Oil City Stags, who went on to win the Collegiate

Division of the N.A.B.F. World Series.
