The Osakis baseball team has had a flair for the dramatic in the first two rounds of the Section 5A West tournament.

The Silverstreaks let a 5-1 lead slip away against Upsala-Swanville Area on Tuesday before winning 7-5 on a big hit from Dominic Baker.

The senior catcher delivered on the first pitch with two men on in the sixth, sending the ball off the center field fence to drive in both runners with a double.

Eighth grader Jordan Frederick then did exactly what he did in the postseason opener for Osakis. He shut down the opposition in the seventh inning to preserve a close lead.

That same scenario played out in the opening round against Pillager. Devin Waldvogel started and lasted 3 2/3 innings before a bases clearing double knocked him out of the game with an 8-2 deficit.

Frederick came in and threw strikes and let his defense work behind him. He allowed one run on two walks and no hits in 3 1/3 innings.

The Silverstreaks were scheduled to take on the top seed from the West in Eden Valley-Watkins yesterday afternoon at Putz Field in St. Cloud. The winner of that game advances to a 7 p.m. game next Monday in Pierz. The loser plays at 5 p.m. at the same location on Monday against the runner-up from the East.
