Tumberg walk-off RBI sends Mills to state semifinals


CHASKA — The New York Mills Eagles (24-0) rallied with four runs in the final two innings to advance to the Minnesota Class A state baseball semifinals defeating Ely 4-3 on a walk-off liner by Damon Tumberg to score Nick Kupfer with the game-winner at Chaska Athletic Park Thursday evening.

“It was crazy,” said Tumberg. “I was just thinking hit the ball, put it in play and was just praying and praying I could get the job done.”
