Sleepy Eye hands Loyola first loss

Late rally leads to Indians victory

(Continued)

With the bases loaded, Korteum walked the first batter, bringing in the go-ahead run for Sleepy Eye. That set up a high pop-up to Korteum during the very next at-bat that appeared like the final out of the inning. Korteum stumbled on the mound and let the ball fall as another Indian runner crossed the plate, making the score 8-6.

The Crusaders tacked on another run in the bottom of the sixth thanks to three straight singles from Austin Ellingworth, Sellner and Brett Taylor, but Sleepy Eye reliever Dylan Klein managed to force a groundout from Cipos to keep the Indians ahead.

Loyola had one more shot in the bottom of the seventh as sophomore Noah Rajtar came to the plate with the tying run in scoring position. But he flied out to the left field, and Loyola fell to 4-1, while Klein got the victory for the Indians.

“When you score seven runs you should be able to win,” Landkamer said. “This is the first time all year we haven’t played good defense, and you’re going to have games like that. But we’ll get better.”

For Loyola, Sellner led the hitting column with a 3-for-3 outing. Taylor finished the night 2 for 4, and Austin Ellingworth finished with two singles and three runs scored for the Crusaders.
