The Cambridge American Legion baseball team enjoyed a strong run in last week’s Sub-State Tournament hosted in Princeton. Jake Johnson (pictured taking a cut) and the Cambridge boys took wins from Big Lake and North Branch before St. Francis won July 24. 

   The Post #290 squad then held for a thrilling 9-8 victory  in the bottom of the 16th over Princeton to reach the finals. The locals defeated St. Francis 2-0 in the first game on Saturday before the Saints defended their tourney title with a 4-3 win in the second championship game. 

   St. Francis will play host Eagan when the Minnesota Legion Division I tourney begins July 31.
