...It looked for all-the-world the Southland Rebels had a win nearly secured. Against 1-6 R-P, they jumped out to a 6-1 lead after three. And though R-P tightened the score (6-4) with a 3-run 4th, Southland took a 13-4 lead into the bottom of the 6th, aided by Alan May's hot bat (4-5, 2 2B's, HR, 3 RBI's). That's when R-P's aluminum woke up. A Blake Erickson 2-run HR, his second of the season, got the scoring started. Four of R-P's next six batters reached, one scored, leaving the bases loaded with two outs for junior Ethan Wilkemeyer. With one HR already, he ripped number two (on a 1-2 count), a grand slam that made the score 13-11 Rebels (Ethan finished with 7 RBI's). Erickson pitched the top of the 7th, struck out the side, bringing the Trojan's back to bat. With one out, three straight green and gold hitters singled, loading the bases. Out number two threatened the comeback, but a Ben Krambeer single made it a one-run game. An Erickson single tied the game at 13. That brought senior Jared Brown to the plate. Brown waited through one pitch, but then deposited offering number two over the right field fence for a walk-off grand slam! The final was Trojans 17, Rebels 13. Odd stats of note; R-P survived an 8-error game while scoring as many runs as in their previous seven contests combined.
