PERHAM — A confident No. 4 Alexandria Post 87 ballclub batted around the order the first three innings in a 14-0 blowout of No. 8 Detroit Lakes in championship quarterfinal play at the Minnesota Sub State 14 American Legion baseball tournament at Krueger Field.


“I’m confident in our guys and think we have everything we need to win the tournament,” Head Coach Jake Munsch said. “We still have to go out and execute. We’re good on paper but paper can burn quick.”
