Caledonia Falls to Rochester Lourdes in Lightning Delayed Elimination Game
The Eagles scored two runs int eh first, as Joe Macken and Ben Limburg led things off with back-to-back singles, and both game around to score on a bases-loaded walk, and a sacrifice fly.
The Warriors put a lot of stress on Eagles' starter Brady Kraling, putting runners in scoring position in the first three innings. The Eagles scored one run in the second to tie the game at 1 when Casey Storlies hit an RBI single to score Mason Staggemeyer. The Warriors tied things up in the third, when Tate Meiners scored on a wild pitch.
Tied at two, the Eagles scored three runs in the fifth. Two of the runs game in on a two RBI single from Hayden Brown to give the Eagles a 5-2 lead. The Eagles tacked on two more in the top of the sixth, and that is when the lightning game.
After a 1 hour and 27 minute delay, the teams returned to the field, but the Warriors just couldn't muster up any offense, falling 7-2. It was a long day of baseball for the Warriors that took a total of over seven hours for two games.
Austin Werner got the start and the loss for the Warriors, while Kraling picked up the win for the Eagles.
The Warriors had a phenomenal season, congrats to them!
