Connor Doll threw seven innings of two-run baseball, Mason Faut contributed a run-scoring triple and Hazen topped the Burlington Bulldogs 3-2 to advance to the Class B West Region tournament championship game.

Twins will test Sano in right field

Shortly after the 2015 MLB season had concluded, the Minnesota Twins made a rather surprising trade with the New York Yankees. Minnesota sent outfielder Aaron Hicks to New York in exchange for catcher John Ryan Murphy. At face value, this transaction had the looks of a move that should prove to be mutually beneficial, as both Hicks and Murphy represent young talents with scout-approved potential.

Century, Przybilla tighten West standings with win over Jamestown

The Century Patriots entered this week in the midst of a bit of a slump, and the teams on their schedule didn’t forecast things getting much better. Century had lost three of its past four games, dropping a pair against Minot before a split with St. With the Bismarck Demons and Jamestown Blue Jays, previously the top two teams in the West Region, on the schedule for this week, the Patriots’ woes appeared destined to continue.
