MACON -- Marshall SABL split four games last week to finish fourth at the Babe Ruth 11-year-old State Tournament at Macon.
Marshall, which swept Brookfield for the District 7 crown, 19-2 and 12-2, came back from a 15-5 first-round loss to Phelps County with a pair of victories: 10-5 over Cassville and 4-2 against Boonville. Sikeston eliminated SABL, but not until after being challenged. Down 11-0 after two innings, Marshall pulled to within 11-8 before dropping a 13-8 decision.
