Baseball Swedes Go Down in 32-Run Game


Lindsborg, Kan. ( – The Bethany College Baseball team played at home against the University of St. Mary Baseball Team. The run filled game brought a lot of excitement for both sides.


St. Mary would start off the game by scoring the 1st run in the 1st inning. They would score another 2 runs in the next inning while the Swedes would only stay at 1 run in the 2nd. In the 6th inning St. Mary would extend their lead by 5 runs making their lead 9-2 by the 7th inning. In the 7th inning the Swedes would find a sudden burst of momentum and score 5 runs of their own with the fighting spirit being very strong within the team. Their momentum would be ended on a difficult call at home where the umpire deemed Israel Brenes to be out. Unfortunately, in the 9th inning St. Mary would score 11 runs and make it a difficult path to come back from for the Swedes. Not willing to go out without a fight, the Swedes still managed to score 4 runs in that inning ending the game 21-11. Both teams played their hearts out in this 32-run thriller, but unfortunately the Swedes would not be on top.
