Chatfield Legion BB wins district semi, awaits Caledonia or La Crescent

(ABC 6 News) — Top-seeded Chatfield is one win away Luverne.

They faced off against Caledonia Saturday in the American Legion baseball south sub-state semifinal in St. Charles.

The game was tied going into the 7th and 8th innings, a lot in part to the performances on the mound from both Chatfield’s Drew Schindler and Caledonia’s Tristan Augedahl.

The pair notched several strikeouts and eventually were taken out due to pitch count.

Chatfield finally broke through in the top of the ninth, when Adam Mullenbach hit a go-ahead RBI double with a runner on third. A 1-2-3 inning in the bottom of the ninth clinched the 6-5 victory. Chatfield will play for the sub-state championship Sunday.
