Beetles baseball: Second half run comes up short for Alexandria

Email News Alerts

The Alexandria Beetles put a scare into Willmar in the last two weeks of the season before the Stingers ultimately punched their ticket to the playoffs with a 21-13 second-half record.


The Beetles bounced back from a 13-22 record in the first half to finish the second half 20-15 after winning three of their final five games of the regular season. That left them 1.5 games back in their attempt to reach the postseason for the second straight season.
