The Charles City Comet baseball team was in Saint Ansgar last night in a non-conference game.  The Saints jumped out ahead early and then with a seven run fifth inning, it looked as though it was sealed up as Saint Ansgar led 11-2.  The Comets would not quit though, as they scored two in the sixth and six runs in the seventh, but fell just short of a historic comeback 11-10.  Drew Mitchell led the Comet offense by going 2-2 with three runs scored and an RBI while Theo Arndt, Wyatt Stevenson, and Jordan Kapping each had a pair of runs batted in.  Jacob Hyde, Ben Boerjan and Sam Steele all had two hits for the Saints and Boerjan and Steele both had a couple of RBI.  The loss gives the Comets an overall record of 7-17 and they will finish up their regular season tonight at Decorah.  Saint Ansgar finishes their season with a record of 22-8 and they will begin postseason play on July 12th.

The North Butler Bearcat baseball team concluded their regular season last night at home against Hampton-Dumont.  The Bearcats jumped out to a 2-0 lead after two innings and held a 2-1 lead heading into the seventh, but the Bulldogs tied it with a run in the seventh to force extras.  Hampton-Dumont then proceeded to score seven runs in the top of the eighth and upended North Butler 9-2.  The Bearcats finish their season with a record of 6-16 and will have their first District game on Tuesday.

The Osage Green Devil baseball team will begin postseason play tomorrow night as they will play in Hampton against Lake Mills.  The Green Devils finished the regular season with a record of 13-18 while Lake Mills comes in with a record of 14-11.  This Class 2A District 4 game will begin at 5pm.
