NORWAY - After taking an extra-inning victory in its first game, the Marquette Senior High School baseball team won the Norway Tournament on Saturday with a 4-1 triumph over Negaunee in the title game.
Alex Pietrowski scattered five hits against the Miners, walking three and striking out three. He was named the tourney's most valuable player and to the all-tournament team.
Collin Schwemin posted a hit and an RBI for the Redmen (10-9) of head coach Todd Koski.
Tony Zampese turned in two hits for Negaunee, but it wasn't enough to keep hurler Tyler Jandron from taking the loss. He allowed four hits and three walks while fanning 11.
In their first game, the Redmen rallied to down Stephenson, 7-6, in eight innings.
After the Eagles scored a run to take a 6-5 lead in the top of the eighth, Conner Brazeau hit a run-scoring sacrifice fly to tie the game, then Brendan Higbie slapped a run-scoring single to left for the MSHS win.
Schwemin (three) and Nathan Lamora (two) combined for five hits for MSHS.
Josh Beaudry went the distance on the mound for Marquette. He surrendered five hits and two walks while striking out one.
Schwemin, Lamora, Higbie and Beaudry also made the all-tourney team for Marquette. Negaunee's Tyler LaJoie, Jandron and Dan Brown were so honored, as well.
