2011 Tomahawk East All-Star Game

East Defeats West in Delayed Extra-Inning Battle


The rain that has been a nuisance during the regular Tomahawk East League season, also delayed the start of the annual All-Star Game. The game, which was hosted by Sleepy Eye, began 45 minutes late due to a storm which moved through the area. A really good crowd was on hand, in spite of the weather and delayed start, and they saw an excellent ballgame.

Derek Skovbroten from Leavenworth started on the mound for the West All-Stars. He pitched three innings. Kyle Fischer representing Searles took the ball for the East All-Stars and pitched two innings.

The game was tied going into the eleventh inning. Justin Schwecke from the Gibbon Reds came up big for the East when he ripped a bases-loaded single to drive in the winning run.

Ty Sellner of the Essig Bluejays earned the win, working three innings. Andy Cook of the Leavenworth Orioles took the loss for the West, also pitching three innings. The game's Most Valuable Player was Brady Mosenden of the Hanska Lakers who went 3-for-4 with two runs batted in.

Best of luck to all of the Tomahawk East League teams as they continue their regular season schedules leading up to the league playoffs, which begin on Friday, July 29th.
