The MacStrength Grizzlies were unable to forge a deep run in their maiden state tournament voyage.

Tournament regular Baseball 365 won 9-3 at Palm Field in St. Anthony. The game was rescheduled from Saturday due to inclement weather.

Baseball 365 was led by Nate Behlen who went 3-for-5 with a home run, double and four runs batted in. Tommy Bean, Sam Kulesa, Mason Wolf and Matt Kulesa each had two hits. 

Noah Danner was the winning pitcher. He went seven innings, allowing three runs, two walks and striking out 10.

Minneapolis-based Baseball 365 is making its fifth state tournament appearance in its nine-year history. 2021 state finalist advances to play the 2021 finalist Highland Park Beavers. Highland Park beat the Stillwater Loggers 2-1 Monday.

Baseball 365 and Highland Park have not met in 2022.

Eden Prairie-based MacStrength is in its third season. The Grizzlies played all road games in 2022.
