Involved in its third straight one-run game at a tournament in Cold Spring, the Marshall Blue VFW baseball team came up on the losing end of a 10-9 eight-inning constest against Armstrong Saturday to have its tournament cut short.
Marshall scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to force an extra inning, but didn't have an answer for Armstrong's run in the top of the eight. Blue finished the tournament 1-2. On Friday, Marshall defeated Cold Spring Gray 4-3 in 10 innings before losing 3-2 to Shakopee.
Blue showed its power in Saturday's loss. Noah Winkelman and Dylan Criquet-Danielson each hit a home run in the game. Winkelman also had a double in the contest. Conner Winkelman, Jack Bock and Brent Andries each added two hits for Marshall.
Marshall Blue (3-2 overall) is right back in action today with a home game against Granite Falls.
