Mankato West Tops Falcons In Extra Inning Game
Fortunately there was a little breeze on a hot afternoon at Gustavus Adolfus College in St. Peter as the Manakto West Scarlets defeated Faribault 5-4 in the Section 2AAA Tournament.
The Falcons got on the board first in the 3rd, Andy Prange got a double, Bailey Reichert got a single, Dylan O'Neil got on on a walk. Austin Rendler Hot out to right. That was followed by a single from Dylan Vargo and a double from Jake Luwagie and the Falcons lead 4-0.
In the bottom of the 4th the Scarlets rang up Blake Borwege for 3 runs and 5 hits. Lucas Warner came on for Scarlets starter Dalton Hinsch in the 4th and in the 5th allowed only one Falcon hit and struck out 2, and did not allow much from the Falcons the rest of the way.
Dylan Vargo came on in the 5th for Borwege and they picked up 1 run in the 5th and in the 8th a throwing error at the plate caused Lielbel to score for the Scarlets from 3rd to end the game. The highlight for the Scarlets day is Jack Foster putting one over the fence for a one run homer in the 5th.
