Great pitching, stellar performances and high emotions carried the Red Wing Aces to the victory every step of the way in the Dewey Tauer Tournament.
The team posted back-to-back 5-4 wins coming off Friday's 13-3 trouncing of New Richmond. On Saturday, Red Wing defeated the Austin in the 11th inning following a rain delay after the 10th. On Sunday, the team held off Mankato to take the championship.
For player/assistant manager Andy Gibart, winning the local tournament and having a 15-4 record halfway to August signal the Aces are well on their way during this transition year.
"I don't think we could have asked for a better start or a better outcome for the first half," he said.
