The second game saw each team put up a 12-run inning – Burnsville in the second and Rosemount in the third – on the way to the 35-run combined total. Burnsville also got four runs in the first, two in the fourth and four in the fifth on the way to the win. Rosemount’s only other scoring was a single run in the fifth.
Rosemount didn’t score more than one run in any inning June 13 as it beat Faribault, 3-2. Rosemount got runs in the first, fourth and fifth, then held Faribault to a pair of runs in the sixth.
