Tuck Lang went two for four hitting for Minneola. Collin Berger, Maverick Flax and Austin Schaffer each drove in a run.
“It took us a while to get going but we finally hit the ball in the fifth and sixth innings,” Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger said. “We were leading 3-0 and let Minneola back in the game with a few walks and hit batsmen. They tied the game in the top of the sixth and still had the bases loaded with two outs. I noticed the runner at third was getting a huge secondary lead. I called a pick play to third and catcher Collin Kohl made a nice snap-throw to Jon Schlosser at third base to get the third out to end the inning. It gave us some momentum and in the bottom of the inning, after Schlosser got walked, Luke Ratzlaff hit a laser to the fence and came all the way around to score for an inside-the-park home run. Wyatt Falco reached on an error and then Corbin Unruh and Noah Eichelberger followed with consecutive singles. A well executed suicide squeeze by Kohl and courtesy runner Brady Helms extended the lead. Chris Leddy then followed with a two-rbi single to center scoring Unruh and Eichelberger.”
Leddy went two innings on the mound for Moundridge, striking out two. Kohl went 1.2 innings, allowed two hits and striking out three. Wyatt Falco went three innings for the win, allowing a hit, three walks and three strikeouts. Cross Lintecum pitched the final out, allowing three runs and two hits.
Lang went 5.2 innings for the loss for Minneola, allowing four earned runs on nine hits with three walks and six strikeouts.
“We were trying to save our starting pitching for tomorrow so we only let Leddy and Kohl go thirty pitches,” Lynn Eichelberger said. “Wyatt Falco had to pitch through some jams and finished the game getting the win. He is the only pitcher not available for tomorrow. I though Leddy and Kohl pitched well and need to continue that trend tomorrow for us to have a chance.”
Minneola ends the season 2-15. Moundridge is 8-13 and plays Medicine Lodge (12-6) at 3:30 p.m. today. The finals are scheduled for 5 p.m.
