MONROE—The Farm Bureau Lifers came out of the loser's bracket of the double elimination Monroe Little League tournament to claim the 2012 title by handing Monroe Grain a pair of losses Thursday night.
Had Monroe Grain, who beat the Lifers earlier in the week, won the opening contest Thursday, the tournament would have been over, but Farm Bureau pounded out a 14-2 win to force a second game. In the nightcap, the Lifers jumped out to a 8-2 lead and then held on for a final 14-10 triumph.
