The Eagles scored three in the first inning and tacked on two in the second to begin the attack. The runs in the first were aided by a pair of Blaze errors. Blake Schmit's triple for Eden Prairie in the second accounted for the runs in that inning.
In a losing effort, Burnsville's Brandon Peterson hit a no-doubt-about-it two-run home run to left field in the bottom of the sixth. Props for the shot - it was a rocket - but we could have done without the cocky bat toss ...
Two batters later, teammate Tom Sherman then hit a laser into the bullpen to make it 7-5, but the Eagles allowed no more.
And with that, the Prep Championship Series is complete. Here's hoping the MSHSL sets this baby up again for next year. What a day out here at the new ballpark.
