All three State Championship games are set in the Minnesota State High School Baseball Tournament. But the games will not be played on Saturday at Target Field.

Instead the Minnesota State High School League announced Friday, the championship games would be postponed until Monday.

The championships were originally scheduled for Saturday, but were postponed until Monday because of concerns about the weather.

"The Twins have two different radar systems that both indicated that there will be rain on Saturday," high school league executive director, Dave Stead told Minnesota Baseball Hub. "It doesn't make sense for the Twins to bring in a grounds crew for two days, and since the weather looks perfect on Monday, we made the decision to move all of the games to make it a championship day for each team."

The Class A Championship will feature New Life Academy against unbeaten New York Mills.

New York Mills advanced to the state championship game after beating Chatfield 6-5, on a bases loaded walk.

Tucker Skoblik drew a bases loaded walk to score Brandon Kupfer and send the Eagles to the state championship.

New Life Academy ended BOLD's hopes to repeat as the Class A Champion. Sam Horner held the Warriors to two hits in eight innings, leading the Eagles to a 3-2, eight inning win.

The Class 2A Championship will feature the top two seeds. Brindley Thiesen tossed a three-hit shutout to lead St. Cloud Cathedral to a 6-0 victory over Glencoe-Silver Lake in the semifinals.

Jeff Fasching's home run, highlighted a three-run first inning, and that was all Thiesen would need.

The Crusaders will face Fairmont in the championship.

Fairmont broke out the bats in a 19-3 win over Kasson-Mantorville in the other semifinal game.

Luke Becker homered and scored four runs and Tyler Tennyson had four hits and drove in four runs to lead the Cardinals to the victory.

In Class 3A, Mounds View will meet Eden Prairie in the championship.

Mounds View pinch runner Joe Janey came around to score on a single from Ryan Plasencia, in the bottom of the seventh, to send the Mustangs to the championship, with a 2-1 victory over Lakeville North.

Mustang pitcher Kellen Rholl gave up one run and three hits to pick up the win.

Eden Prairie pounded out 15 hits to beat Lakeville South 13-3 in the other semifinal game.

Matthew Cheesman was 3 for 3 with four RBIs and Jeff Athey had three hits and scored two runs to lift the Eagles to the victory.
