News Article - Big Win At State - Aug 24, 2009
The first game of the State Tournament was a close one for the Snappers as they beat the Midway Snurdbirds 2-1. It was a pitching battle from the begining as there were no hits on either side into the bottom of the 5th inning. Matt Merten broke that streak with a chopper through the infield but the game remained 0-0 into the 8th. Midway capitalized on a couple of hits, and some mistakes defensively, and managed to score the first run of the game in the top of the 8th inning. The Snappers didn't give up though and made 3 clutch hits in the bottom of the 8th to score 2. Dan O' Connol hit a huge double to lead off, Keaton Gustin hit an even bigger single to drive home Dan O, Matt Merten reached on an error to move Keater over, and Brad Haag chopped a single up the middle to score Logan Birr from 2nd who was pinch running for Keater. Great pitching by Tim Scott, Chad Schwegel and Josh Vorpahl held Midway to only 1 run and the win. It was an intense game and a big win for the Snappies as they advance further into the State tournament. Next Game will be at 1:30PM Sat. in Arlington against the Loretto Larks.

News Article - Big Wins to go to State - Aug 10, 2009
What a big weekend it was for the Snappers who won their first two games of the Region 10C tournament to make it to the Minnesota State Amateur Baseball Tournament!!! This will be their first time since 1998 to make it to the State Tournament!!! In 1998, as the HR Pesty's Snappers, they made it to State for the very first time but now the team known as the St. Cloud Snappers have made it 11 years later. Saturday started of Regionals for the Snappies against the Granite City Grays. It was a huge offensive effort for the whole team putting up 11 runs to maintain the lead for the whole game. Once again great pitching by the Snappers prevailed with efforts from Chris Koenig and Chad Schwegel, draftee from the St. Joseph Saints. Sundays game was a pitching dual between Sartell and the Snappers as Josh Vorpahl pitched no hit baseball through to the 5th inning. The 5th turned out to be a rough inning defensively and Sartell took the lead by 4 into the 8th Inning. But once again the bats came alive for the Snappers and they put up 5 more runs to take the lead going into the 9th. Tim Scott did great in relief for Josh coming in in the 6th. only letting up one run and shutting Sartell out the rest of the way. Next weekend finishes off the Region 10C tournament as the Snappers will play the winner of Sartell and Ortho for seeding for the State Tournament.
