Email News Alerts

The Alexandria baseball team got a little magic with a walk-off winner in its opening game of the Section 8-3A tournament this past Monday.


The top-seeded Cardinals trailed 2-1 going to the bottom of the seventh before they rallied for a 3-2 win over ninth-seeded St. Michael-Albertville. Toby Helgeson delivered the deciding blow as his single to left field with two outs and two strikes brought home Grant Becker and Kaden Anderson to advance Alexandria into the winner's bracket.
