Late Tiger Rally Drops Redbirds
Springfield used a late rally to overcome a 4-1 deficit and defeat Redwood Falls.
The Tigers scored the game's first run in the bottom of the first when Kyle Kraska led off with a single. Brent Haseleu moved him up with a sacrifice and Brady Schwab started the scoring with an RBI double. Springfield starter Matt Tews surrendered four runs during the middle innings to give Redwood Falls a 4-1 lead.
The Tiger bats were clutch in the bottom of the eighth as they batted around, plating four runs. Key in the inning were hits by Schwab, Bob Fink, Tews, and Kraska. Springfield batted around and gained a 5-4 lead. Tews went out and finished things up in the ninth inning, earning his fifth win of the season.
The come-back victory is the Tigers' fourth one-run victory of the season.
The win moves their record to 12-6 on the year. Springfield's next game is
a 5pm start at Lamberton on Sunday.
